So CFY gives the average number of atoms of a specific nuclide produced from a fission directly plus that from the decay of precursors, so why does thermal U233 have two values for Gallium @ 7.192x10^(8) and 1.0788x10^(8)? Is this number dependent on the thermal range the neutrons that hit the nucleus of U233?

For this topic the interest is in thermal neutron fission, i.e. a MSR, just like a light water solid fuel reactor.

Question about Cumulative Fission Yields
http://wwwnds.iaea.org/relnsd/vchart/ I don't understand why there are two values there. I noticed the IAEA definition for CFY's is, "total number of atoms of a specific nuclide produced directly by a fission event and via decay of precursors", (link:http://wwwnds.iaea.org/sgnucdat/safeg2008.pdf) but wikepedia says it is per 100 fissions (link:http://www.nucleonica.net/wiki/index...cts_and_Yields), which is correct?

From the JENDL4.0 database (http://wwwndc.jaea.go.jp/cgibin/nuc...0a.cgi?31,72,1) for Ga72 gives:
I added 69 from (http://wwwndc.jaea.go.jp/cgibin/nuc...0a.cgi?31,69,1) and 71 from (http://wwwndc.jaea.go.jp/cgibin/nuc...0a.cgi?31,71,1)

Those values on your table are slightly different from the table I used, should I stick with iaea values or switch to jaea?
