abstract={The theory of Feynman-alpha method was extended to two-point one-group, two-group onepoint,

is related to the fact that the traditional one-group one-region Feynman-alpha formula was
elaborated and used for thermal systems in which the thermal
ux and the lifetime of thermal
neutrons dominates. However, this approach does not fully describe the effects of the re

two-point formulas were elaborated for different types of detections. Previously, the
two-group one-point formula described only detections of fast neutrons and at the same time
neglected the fast fissions, while the two-point one-group formula were limited to the case where
source term and detections were considered only for a core region. The quantitative assessment
of the formulas with regards to applications in safeguards and accelerator-driven system was
made through MCNPX and MCNP-PoliMi simulations. The results indicate a possibility to use
Feynman-alpha method to differentiate between various isotopic compositions of nuclear fuel.},
