¹³⁷,¹³⁸,¹³⁹La(n,γ) cross sections constrained with statistical decay properties of ¹³⁸,¹³⁹,¹⁴⁰La nuclei
(American Physical Society, 2017)The nuclear level densities and γray strength functions of ¹³⁸,¹³⁹,¹⁴⁰La were measured using the ¹³⁹La(³He,α), ¹³⁹La(³He,'³He), and ¹³⁹La(d,p) reactions. The particleγ coincidences were recorded with the silicon particle ... 
The law of general application requirement in expropriation law and the impact of the Expropriation Bill of 2015
(University of Pretoria, 2017)AFRIKAANSE OPSOMMING: In hierdie artikel word die vereiste ‘algemeen geldende regsvoorskrif’ in artikel 25(2) van die Grondwet van die Republiek van SuidAfrika,1996, ontleed aan die hand van die Onteieningswetsontwerp ... 
Measuring antigenspecific responses in Mycobacterium bovisinfected warthogs (Phacochoerus africanus) using the intradermal tuberculin test
(BMC (part of Springer Nature), 2018)Background: Bovine tuberculosis (bTB) caused by Mycobacterium bovis has previously been diagnosed in warthogs and infection can be highly prevalent (> 30%) in endemic areas. Thus, warthogs could potentially be an ... 
No evidence for extensions to the standard cosmological model
(American Physical Society, 2017)We compute the Bayesian evidence for models considered in the main analysis of Planck cosmic microwave background data. By utilizing carefully defined nearestneighbor distances in parameter space, we reuse the Monte Carlo ... 
Nuclear matrix element of neutrinoless doubleβ decay : relativity and shortrange correlations
(American Physical Society, 2017)Background:The discovery of neutrinoless doubleβ (0νββ) decay would demonstrate the nature of neutrinos, have profound implications for our understanding of matterantimatter mystery, and solve the mass hierarchy problem ... 
Nuclear matter properties with nucleonnucleon forces up to fifth order in the chiral expansion
(American Physical Society, 2017)The properties of nuclear matter are studied using stateoftheart nucleonnucleon forces up to fifth order in chiral effective field theory. The equations of state of symmetric nuclear matter and pure neutron matter are ... 
Platelet, monocyte and neutrophil activation and glucose tolerance in South African Mixed Ancestry individuals
(Nature Research, 2017)Platelet activation has been described in patients with chronic inflammation, however in type 2 diabetes mellitus it remains controversial. We compared levels of platelet leucocyte aggregates, monocyte and granulocyte ... 
Prethermalization and persistent order in the absence of a thermal phase transition
(American Physical Society, 2017)We numerically study the dynamics after a parameter quench in the onedimensional transversefield Ising model with longrange interactions (∝1/rα with distance r), for finite chains and also directly in the thermodynamic ... 
Procedurally Arbitrary Deprivation of Property

Professional learning for teaching at a researchintensive university : the need for a ‘carefull’ environment
(HESA, 2018)The participation of academics in professional learning opportunities for teaching plays an important role in promoting the desired outcomes of higher education teaching and learning. If university teachers pursuing a ... 
Protection number in plane trees
(University of Belgrade  School of Electrical Engineering, 201710)The protection number of a plane tree is the minimal distance of the root to a leaf; this definition carries over to an arbitrary node in a plane tree by considering the maximal subtree having this node as a root. We ... 
Quantum stabilization of a hedgehog type of cosmic string
(Elsevier, 2017)Within a slightly simplified version of the electroweak standard model we investigate the stabilization of cosmic strings by fermion quantum fluctuations. Previous studies of quantum energies considered variants of the ... 
Representing the poor: Law, poverty and democracy

Robustness of rigid and adaptive networks to species loss
(Public Library of Science, 2017)Controversies in the complexitystability debate have been attributed to the methodologies used such as topological vs. dynamical approaches or rigid vs. adaptive foraging behaviour of species. Here, we use a bipartite ... 
Selfconsistent relativistic quasiparticle randomphase approximation and its applications to chargeexchange excitations
(American Physical Society, 2017)The selfconsistent quasiparticle randomphase approximation (QRPA) approach is formulated in the canonical singlenucleon basis of the relativistic Hatree–Fock–Bogoliubov (RHFB) theory. This approach is applied to study ... 
Solving Dirac equations on a 3D lattice with inverse Hamiltonian and spectral methods
(American Physical Society, 2017)A new method to solve the Dirac equation on a 3D lattice is proposed, in which the variational collapse problem is avoided by the inverse Hamiltonian method and the fermion doubling problem is avoided by performing spatial ... 
Surveillance of healthcareassociated infection in hospitalised South African children : Which method performs best?
(Health & Medical Publishing Group, 2017)Background. In 2012, the South African (SA) National Department of Health mandated surveillance of healthcareassociated infection (HAI), but made no recommendations of appropriate surveillance methods. Methods. Prospective ... 
Vacuum polarization energy for general backgrounds in one space dimension
(Elsevier, 2017)For field theories in one time and one space dimensions we propose an efficient method to compute the vacuum polarization energy of static field configurations that do not allow a decomposition into symmetric and antisymmetric ... 
Wannie Carstens : profeet vir versoening – Sy enigste droom was om die Afrikaanse gemeenskap te versoen
(AOSIS Publishing, 2018)Wannie Carstens: An agent for reconciliation. His only dream was to reconcile the Afrikaans community. When I first met Wannie Carstens, I thought to myself: This must be one of those WOW moments that people talk about. ... 
α clustering in ²⁸Si probed through the identification of highlying 0⁺ states
(American Physical Society, 2017)Background: Aspects of the nuclear structure of light αconjugate nuclei have long been associated with nuclear clustering based on α particles and heavier αconjugate systems such as ¹²C and ¹⁶O. Such structures are ...
