The dynamic simulation mode allows running external source simulations in sub- and super-critical systems over extended time periods, keeping the simulated population size within reasonable limits. The methodology is based on sequential population control, as described in a conference paper presented at M&C 2013[1]

The mode is invoked by linking a time bin structure in the set nps card.
