Parcs Cross-Section format
For a BWR-transient calculation I'm trying to convert cross-sections I got from PSG2/Serpent simulations in Parcs [CrossSection] Input files.
Parcs makes use of
SNF Nu-fission cross section
SKF Kappa-fission cross sectionI assume this means Nu (as in neutrons/fission-event times fission cross section) but I'm not familiar with kappa in this context. Anyone have an idea what it denotes?
Any and all documentation or insights about parcs cross-section input files would be more than welcome.

There is a definition of kappa-fission in this thesis.
Just search on kappa (see page 27/127 of the pdf, or page 17, eq. 4.2d), where kappa is related to the local power density.
