The simulation of independent and cumulative yields requires precise knowledge of the initial conditions of the fission fragments immediately after scission. In this paper, we use a quantum-mechanical description of fission dynamics to extract the initial mass distribution of fission fragments for the neutron-induced fission of the two major actinides 239 Pu and 235 U, both for thermal fission and as a function of the incident neutron energy.
