    • X-ray and gamma-ray polarization in leptonic and hadronic jet models of blazars 

      Zhang, H.; Böttcher, M. (IOP Science, 2013)
      We present a theoretical analysis of the expected X-ray and γ-ray polarization signatures resulting from synchrotron self-Compton emission in leptonic models compared to the polarization signatures from proton synchrotron ...
    • X-ray and gamma-ray variability of NGC 1275

      Van der Sluis, Rencia; Erasmus, Elardus (Taylor & Francis, 2016)
      Introduction: Activation of fatty acids by the acyl-CoA synthetases (ACSs) is the vital first step in fatty acid metabolism. The enzymatic and physiological characterization of the human xenobiotic/medium chain fatty acid: ...

      Schoeman, Anneke L.; Joubert, Tracy-Lee; Du Preez, Louis H.; Svitin, Roman (Taylor & Francis, 2020)
      The effect of invasive species on local parasite dynamics is often overlooked. The African Clawed Frog Xenopus laevis (Daudin, 1802) (Anura: Pipidae) is a global invader, with established populations on four continents and ...
    • The y-ray spectrum of the core of Centaurus A as observed with H.E.S.S. and Fermi-LAT 

      Abdalla, H.; Barnard, M.; Böttcher, M.; Garrigoux, T.; Ivaschenko, A.; Krüger, P.P.; Ndiyavala, H.; Pekeur, N.W.; Seyffert, A.S.; Spanier, F.; Sushch, I.; Van der Walt, D.J.; Van Rensburg, C.; Venter, C.; Wadiasingh, Z.; Zacharias, M.; H.E.S.S. Collaboration; Fermi LAT (EDP Sciences, 2018)
      Centaurus A (Cen A) is the nearest radio galaxy discovered as a very-high-energy (VHE; 100 GeV–100 TeV) γ-ray source by the High Energy Stereoscopic System (H.E.S.S.). It is a faint VHE γ-ray emitter, though its VHE flux ...
    • Yahweh’s ‘lord’ and unrestrained evil: an Exegesis of Psalm 110 

      Persaud, Aran J.E. (AOSIS, 2015)
      This article consists of an exegetical investigation of Psalm 110 and assumes that the psalms function in one sense as prayers, which can be prayed authentically by modern worshippers. Consequently, the specific images of ...
    • The year of jubilee: a hermeneutic for social and moral transformation in South Africa 

      Barry, Stephen (AOSIS, 2011)
