This book is concerned with the concept of accountability for all goods used in an industrialized society. This includes basic materials, e.g. metals; production materials, e.g. glass and plastic; waste materials, e.g. sulphur, carbon, nuclear substances and other pollutants. The problem is to account carefully for these materials during their use to see where they are accumulated or disposed and in what quantities with a view to taking a significant step towards complete recycling. This book develops the mathematical theory of material accountability and its verification in a unified way, gives a detailed example of its application in nuclear materials and shows how it can be applied to other situations.
