Development of the radioactivedecay Python package for radioactive decay calculations



The inventories of radioactive nuclides present at nuclear power plants, research institutions, hospitals, in the environment, etc., change continuously due to radioactive decay. radioactivedecay is an easy-to-use Python package that can calculate the changes in activities of radionuclides by radioactive decay to high precision. The source code is published via GitHub and the Python Package Index (PyPI). This talk will explain the features and the development process of the code.
