McClarren Publishes Textbook on Computational Nuclear Engineering 
and Radiological Science
April 28, 2018

Ryan McClarren’s new book, Computational Nuclear Engineering and Radiological Science Using Python, offers a sharp contrast to traditional texts that focus on theory and those that promote the use of legacy programming languages for nuclear engineering and radiological science applications. An associate professor of aerospace and mechanical engineering at the University of Notre Dame, McClarren uses Python, a modern and easy-to-learn programming language, to teach numerical methods for engineering. He also provides the reader with a toolbox of numerical techniques to handle the breadth of problems engineers often face.
