title = "The variational nodal method in R-Z geometry",

abstract = "The variational nodal method contained in the Argonne National Laboratory code VARIANT is generalized to include R-Z geometry. Spherical harmonic trial functions are used in angle, and polynomials in space. The nodal volumes correspond to toroids, with rectangular cross sections, except along centerline where they are cylinders. The R-Z response matrix equations are solved using the iterative methods already contained in VARIANT. Results are given for both a one-group fixed source and a two-group eigenvalue problem.",
