  1. Determination of Neutron Energy Spectra inside a water phantom irradiated by Neutrons of Energy up to 64 MeV : Chapter 2
    Herbert, Mark, 2009, University of Cape Town Libraries
    A neutron spectrometer based on an NE230 deuterated organic liquid scintillator (25 mm diameter x 25 mm) has been developed for measuring neutron spectra in water. The spectrometer is capable of measuring neutron energies above 5 MeV, set by the electronic threshold. An important feature of the spec ...

  3. A study evaluating the social and cultural context of a counselling booklet containing infant feeding and caring messages - A component of a community-based health package- in Umlazi, Kwazulu-Natal
    Hoosain, Naeema Yusuf, 2010, University of Cape Town Libraries
    Introduction Exclusive breastfeeding (mother"s milk only, with the exclusion of all other food or drink) reduces breast milk transmission of HIV compared with mixed feeding. This study was part of formative work for a community-based un-blinded randomised controlled trial (RCT) in an urban township ...
  4. Model-based teaching and learning of kinematics in and introductory physics course for underprepared students
    Ibrahim, Bibi Bashirah, 2009, University of Cape Town Libraries
    This study concerns the application of a model-based approach for problem solving and conceptual understanding, in the context of kinematics, relating to the âfoundationâ component of an introductory physics course designed for students who are academically and scientifically und ...
  5. Categorical semi-direct products in varieties of groups with multiple operators
    Inyangala, Edward Buhuru, 2010, University of Cape Town Libraries
    The notion of a categorical semidirect product was introduced by Bourn and Janelidze as a generalization of the classical semidirect product in the category of groups. The main aim of this work is to study the general properties of semidirect products of groups with operators, describe them in vario ...
  6. Molecular Basis of insulin resistance induced by antiretroviral drugs
    Ismail, Wan Iryani Wan, 2010, University of Cape Town Libraries
    Protease inhibitors are thought to be the major antiretroviral drugs involved in various metabolic disorders in HIV-positive patients. The primary side-effect induced by protease inhibitors is insulin resistance. However, the mechanistic basis of this insulin resistance remains largely unknown. Thus ...
  7. Hydrocarbons and Russian foreign policy in the post-communist era (1991-2008): A case study.
    Jeffery, Jared, 2010, University of Cape Town Libraries
    This thesis aims to analyse the effect of hydrocarbons on Russian foreign policy in the post-communist period. In doing so it employs a constructivist meta-theory (actorstructure framework) and Susan Strangeâs approach to international political economy (IPE). The role of hydrocarbons in b ...
  8. Absurdity in the Early 21 Century
    Jurgens, Francois, 2010, University of Cape Town Libraries
    This essay argues against contemporary theorists who claim that the concept of Absurdity that flourished in Western Europe in the 1940s is now of purely historical interest. It is argued instead that while it is important to locate the concept of Absurdity in an appropriate historical context, peopl ...
  9. A comparative study of the Morphosyntaz and Phonetics of Town Bemba and Standard Bemba of the Copperbelt Zambia
    Kabinga, Moonde, 2010, University of Cape Town Libraries
    For many years now, the status of Town Bemba (TB) has been fuzzy in its descriptions, as no specific framework has been used in characterising the language variety. TB has been regarded as an urban variety spoken in the townships of the Copperbelt province, Zambia. It had also been perceived as a &a ...
  10. Case- Control study of the association of use of health services by children with behavioural and developmental disorders with prenatal alcohol exposure
    Katwan, Elizabeth, 2010, University of Cape Town Libraries
    Background Prenatal alcohol exposure can result in a range of permanent birth defects known as Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders (FASD). Fetal Alcohol Syndrome (FAS), which detrimentally affects the neurodevelopmental, physical, and social capabilities of children, is the most severe diagnosis on thi ...
