On multiple classes of gamma-ray bursts, as deduced from autocorrelation functions or bivariate duration/hardness ratio distributions
(Oxford University Press, 2012)
Autocorrelation functions (ACFs) of 119 gamma-ray bursts (GRBs) monitored by the Burst Alert Telescope (BAT) on Swift are calculated. Contrasting with previous results for smaller numbers of bursts from other missions, ...
Statistical testing of input factors in the carbonation of brine impacted fly ash
(Taylor & Francis, 2012)
A D-optimal design was applied in the study of input factors: temperature, pressure, solid/liquid (S/L) ratio and particle size and their influence on the carbonation of brine impacted fly ash (FA) determined. Both ...
On the use of electrical resistivity methods in monitoring infiltration of salt fluxes in dry coal ash dumps in Mpumalanga, South Africa
(Water Research Commission, 2013)
One of the principal environmental concerns relating to coal combustion waste disposal is the potential for groundwater contamination from salt fluxes and trace elements that may be leached into the underlying groundwater ...

(Cambridge University Press, 2011)
A new record of Crambionella stuhlmanni is reported from the east coast of South Africa. The material is described using quantitative morphological data, and mitochondrial (CO1) and nuclear (ITS-1) sequence data. The species ...
HE 0230−4323 revisited: a new rapidly pulsating sdB star
(Oxford University Press, 2010)
HE 0230−4323 is a hot sdB star in a binary system. An earlier work demonstrated that the light curve of the system shows a strong (∼4 per cent) reflection effect and also appears to exhibit photometric variations of the ...
