The optimization problems on the irradiation of isotopes in nuclear reactors comprise degenerate problems. These arise when no decay transitions occur in the irradiation process and the irradiation time is not given. These problems are characterized by the fact that in the optional regime which is their solution it is only the relative interdependence of the various energy intervals and not the absolute time dependence of each segment of the neutron energy spectrum which is determined.
