Nuclear Reactors and Modelling

Synopsis
Podcast about mathematical modelling and linear programming. Rick Crawford, a mathematician studying decommissioning of nuclear reactors, explains how he uses mathematical models to determine whether it is safe to continue using a particular reactor given that it may have degraded over time, but without actually building a physical model of it.
