2015 arXiv   pre-print
The current state of nuclear fuel cycle simulation exists in highly customized form. Satisfying a wide range of users requires model modularity within such a tool.  ...  Cyclus is a fuel cycle simulator specifically designed to combat the lack of adaptability of previous generations of simulators.  ...  Agent-based fuel cycle modeling, however, subsumes physical modeling frameworks.  ...
