This book addresses the various issues associated with the buildup of reactor-grade plutonium in nuclear power reactors and analyzes its properties critical to the nuclear proliferation risks. An independent "inventory check" of reactor-grade plutonium production is performed according to the types of plutonium, nuclear reactors and countries, and a new approach to the identification of proliferation risks associated with different types of reactor-grade plutonium is presented.
The book is intended for those who deal with non-proliferation and security issues, nuclear power engineering and production, and for students and professors.
