# Nuclear mathematics

## Main Question or Discussion Point

Is there any book that details the nuclear mathematics equations?
i am facing a problems in reading "Nuclear reactor physics", it contains complex mathematics.

Nuclear reactor physics involves primarily transport theory and it's simplification, diffusion theory, both of which require knowledge of partial differential equations and systems of equations.

Perhaps Advanced Engineering Mathematics, 9th Edition by Erwin Kreyszig would help.
