reactor_simulation_test, a FORTRAN90 code which calls reactor_simulation(), which simulates the shielding effect of a slab intended to absorb or reflect most of the radiation from a neutron source. This program is intended as a simple demonstration of Monte Carlo simulation as applied to the analysis of complicated probabilistic systems.
