    • Millisecond pulsars and pulsar wind nebulae as sources of gamma rays and cosmic rays 

      Venter, Christo (North-West University, 2008)
      Our main aim was to implement a fully 3D General Relativistic (GR) frame-dragging polar cap (PC) millisecond pulsar (MSP) model as a numerical code, and constrain it using multiwavelength and cosmic-ray data. We also ...
    • Search for dark matter annihilations towards the inner Galactic halo from 10 years of observations with H.E.S.S. 

      Abdallah, H.; Barnard, M.; Böttcher, M.; Davids, I.D.; Garrigoux, T.; Ivascenko, A.; Krüger, P.P.; Pekeur, N.W.; Seyffert, A.S.; Spanier, F.; Van der Walt, J.; Venter, C. (American Physical Society, 2016)
      The inner region of the Milky Way halo harbors a large amount of dark matter (DM). Given its proximity, it is one of the most promising targets to look for DM. We report on a search for the annihilations of DM particles ...
    • Spectral modelling of H.E.S.S.- detected pulsar wind nebulae 

      Van Rensburg, Carlo (North-West University (South Africa) , Potchefstroom Campus, 2016)
      In the last decade, ground-based Imaging Atmospheric Cherenkov Telescopes have discovered about 175 very-high-energy (VHE; E > 100 GeV) gamma-ray sources, with more to follow with the development of H.E.S.S. II and CTA. ...
