Equilibrium properties of some high-temperature superconductors.
An important fundamental problem in the understanding of the high-Tc superconducting systems is the determination of their equilibrium magnetization behaviour, in particular their constitutive Brev(H) orMrev(H) behavior. ...
Sugar crystal size characterization using digital image processing.
The measurement of the crystal size distribution is a key prerequisite in optimising the growth of sugar crystals in crystalisation pans or for quality control of the final product. Traditionally, crystal size measurements ...
Monte Carlo simulations in open quantum systems.
The motivation for this Masters thesis is to develop numerical algorithms to study the dynamical evolution of non-Markovian open quantum systems. Such systems are of importance if one is interested in modeling solid state ...
Synthesis, structural and magnetic properties of bulk and nanosized (Zn, Cd, Cu)0.5Ni0.5Fe2o4 and NiFe204 ferrites
We present a study of the synthesis, structural and magnetic properties of bulk and nanosized (Zn, Cd, Cu)0:5Ni0:5Fe2O4 and NiFe2O4 compounds. The e®ects of electronic con¯guration and atomic sizes of Zn, Cd, Cu and Ni ...
Computational studies of bond-site percolation.
Percolation theory enters in various areas of research including critical phenomena and phase transitions. Bond-site percolation is a generalization of pure percolation motivated by the fact that bond-site is close to ...
Modelling the interaction between human immunodeficiency virus, mycobacterium tuberculosis and the human immune system, including the effects of drug therapy.
Tuberculosis (TB) is the leading cause of death in individuals infected with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) in several African countries, including South Africa. HIV-positive individuals do not have the immune system ...
