10.5.4} Fission with pointwise cross sections

 Prompt fission is described in a fully correlated manner by means of
 a simple fission model. As such, the exact reproduction of the inclusive
 distributions of fission fragments, fission neutron multiplicities and
 energies are not assured. On the other hand, fully correlated events
 not very far from reality can be simulated allowing to study for
 example the single event response of a detector.

 The fission model parameters have been tuned so that <nu_prompt> for the
 most important isotopes are well reproduced, particularly for those
 isotopes with significant fission cross sections in the thermal region.

 Delayed neutrons are not yet generated, they will come in a future
