    The goal Introduce students to general properties of nuclei, radioactivity and nuclear reactions and radiation detection. Neutron physics and physics of fission and fusion reactions are considered. Introduce students to neutron transport theory, nuclear reactor theory and nuclear reactor statics and kinetics.
    The outcome Students will have proper knowledge to be independent in the filed of Nuclear Techniques. They will have active knowledge to recognize and solve variety of problems in the field of fission nuclear reactors and application of radiation.
    Contents of lectures Nuclear reactions. Detectors of radiation. Chain reaction. Multiplication factor. Slowing down and diffusion of neutrons. Multigroup approximation. Critical size of nuclear reactor. Static parameters of nuclear reactor. Reactivity changes in time. Nuclear reactor poisoning. Nuclear reactor kinetics. Burnup and conversion of nuclear fuel. Generations of nuclear reactors. Fusion reactors.
