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 websitehttp://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 potentialhttp://www.wired.com/magazine/2009/12/ff_new_nukes/
Also is the unprecedented global effort to contribute the the design of a fully community organised LFTR project here, it even includes simulation codes!http://lftrdesign.sourceforge.net
The following videos contain the very distilled information regarding LFTR, Thorium fuel cycles and it's potential

Dr Robert Hargraves @ AIM high
Dr David LeBlanc on Liquid Fluoride Reactorshttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8F0tUDJ35So
Dr Joe Bonometti on LFTR and it's promisehttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AHs2Ugxo7-8
It would also help to read Kirk Sorenson's and Charles Barton (the son of one of the original engineers who worked at ORNL (Oak Ridge National Laboratories)
