    • Modelling the evolution of pulsar wind nebulae 

      Vorster, Michael Johannes (2014)
      This study focusses on modelling important aspects of the evolution of pulsar wind nebulae using two different approaches. The first uses a hydrodynamic model to simulate the morphological evolution of a spherically-symmetric ...
    • A search for optical counterparts of the complex Vela X system 

      Marubini, Enos Takalani (North-West University (South Africa) , Potchefstroom Campus, 2012)
      The pulsar wind nebula (PWN) associated with the Vela pulsar, Vela X, is a complex system visible in radio, X-ray and y-ray wavelengths, but not in the optical wavelength. Knowledge of the brightness and structure of the ...
