Abstract.

Resonances in neutron-induced reactions are important for reaction cross sections and nuclear data in general. They play a major role in nuclear technology for energy or medicine, but also in the study of nuclear level densities and stellar nucleosynthesis. An outline of the field of neutron physics is given, with a focus on neutron resonances, an introduction to the R-matrix formalism and the statistical behaviour of resonance observables.
