Neutron Transport Evaluation and Test Suite (HILO) Ver. 1.0

The HILO test and evaluation suite codes are used to iterate an optimization approach to code development. Tests of various parts of the overall algorithm are written and run on various hardware platforms. Results are fed back to numerical algorithm developers who then modify their algorithms to run more efficiently on chosen hardware platforms. The software produces a steady-state solution to a one-dimensional neutral particle, fixed source, transport problem with vacuum boundary conditions. The physics problem is modeled by a one-dimensional Boltzmann transport equation. The software uses uniform, constant, material properties (absorption and scattering) and isotropic scattering. It can employ either a deterministic or stochastic solution algorithm.
