If you are interested in conducting study for Thorium or LFTR and/or intend to author a paper on the subject. The following is a recommended information flow for familiarizing yourself on the subject.

 

First of all before you begin to look at the other material links, viewing this video would give you a very concise primer on the subject of LFTR

Then, I would like to direct your attention to this website

http://www.energyfromthorium.com/

It is the confluence of the Global Thorium Alliance and the homesite of the founder of the movement Kirk Sorenson.

 

Dr Furukawa's 2007 Road Map for a Th-MSR, the project is currently unfunded.

The following are extremely informative and well researched articles regarding the LFTR design potential

Also is the unprecedented global effort to contribute the the design of a fully community organised LFTR project here, it even includes simulation codes!

The following videos contain the very distilled information regarding LFTR, Thorium fuel cycles and it's potential
