Lectures on nuclear physics that were given to N.S. Savannah reactor operator trainees as a refresher course are summarized in a physics and control manual. The lectures are specifically oriented to the members of each trainee group preparing for senior operator license examinations. The information, presented in a manner that requires only a basic knowledge of mathematics and physics, deals with: nuclear physics, fission process and chain reactions, reactor principles, reactor operation, N.S. Savannah reactor, and reactor control. Definitions are given in an appendix, and extensive tables and figures are included.
