Abstract

Nuclear arms control, including nuclear safeguards and verification technologies for nuclear disarmament typically use software as part of many different technological applications. This thesis proposes to use three open source criteria for such software, allowing users and developers to have free access to a program, have access to the full source code and be able to publish modifications for the program. This proposition is presented and analyzed in detail, together with the description of the development of "Open Neutron Multiplicity Simulation", an open source software tool to simulate neutron multiplicity measurements. The description includes physical background of the method, details of the developed program and a comprehensive set of validation calculations.

Nukleare Rüstungskontrolle, einschließlich nuklearer Safeguards und Verifikationstechnologien für nukleare Abrüstung nutzen Software als Teil vieler verschiedener technologischer Anwendungen. In dieser Arbeit wird vorgeschlagen, drei Open Source Kriterien für solche Software zur Anwendung zu bringen: Freier Zugang zum Programm selbst, freier Zugang zum Quellcode des Programms sowie die Möglichkeit zur Veröffentlichung von Veränderungen der Softare. Dieser Vorschlag wird detailliert vorgestellt und analysiert, zusammen mit einer Beschreibung der Entwicklung des Tools "Open Neutron Multiplicity Simulation", einer Open Source Software zur Simulation von Neutronenmultiplizitätsmessungen. Die Beschreibung umfasst den physikalischen Hintergrund der Methode, Details des entwickelten Programms und einen umfassenden Satz von Validierungsrechnungen.German
