A Monte Carlo code for nuclear criticality calculation is presented. Three different estimators of keff, which is well-known, are included. Also, the technique of combining them is adopted. Besides, when the individual estimators are calculated, the code adopts multi-generations rather than successive generations. The results demonstrate that the effect of multi-generations is obvious.
