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 release.
