This presentation will discuss the major fissile fuel
breeding contenders known today, namely, fast breeders,
accelerator breeders, and fusion-fission hybrid breeders.
It will not address systems with more restricted breeding
potential, such as the light water breeder reactor. The
presentation will begin with a brief discussion of the
need for advanced breeders. Then, each breeder system
will be described, with emphasis on elements generic to
the system. Issues which impact breeder system selection
will then be discussed, and those issues which have been
selected for analysis in the present paper will be deline-
ated clearly. The modelling approach, types of models, and
assumptions for the model will be stated definitively, and
graphical results from the model will then be presented.
The results will be discussed, and conclusions which arise
from the results and which could impact breeder strategy
will then be drawn. The present status of the advanced
breeders will be summarized, and development strategies for
each breeder system based on the analytic results will be
