  1. Some Inplace Identities for Integer Compositions

    Some Inplace Identities for Integer Compositions

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Quaestiones Mathematicae
    In this paper, we give two new identities for compositions, or ordered partitions, of integers. These two identities are based on closely-related integer partition functions which have recently been studied. Thanks to the structure inherent in integer compositions, we are...

    Generalizing inplace multiplicity identities for integer compositions

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Quaestiones Mathematicae
    In a recent paper, the authors gave two new identities for compositions, or ordered partitions, of integers. These identities were based on closely-related integer partition functions which have recently been studied. In the process, we also extensively generalized both of...

    Identification and distribution of viruses infecting sweet potato (<em>Ipomoea batatas</em> L.) in KwaZulu-Natal province, South Africa

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Plant and Soil
    A survey to determine occurrence and distribution of viruses infecting sweet potato (Ipomoea batatas (L.) Lam.) was conducted in major sweet potato growing areas in KwaZulu-Natal (KZN), South Africa. Eighty-four symptomatic vine samples were collected and graft-inoculated onto universal indicator...
  5. Beyond Reasonable Doubt – a paradox of ideological immunity

    Beyond Reasonable Doubt – a paradox of ideological immunity

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Philosophy
    Ideology criticism, like scepticism, calls into question the objective or justified status of beliefs. However, where scepticism only refutes, and never puts forward, a substantive claim about anything, the ideology critic must maintain some criterion for distinguishing ideas which support...
  6. Inversions in compositions of integers

    Inversions in compositions of integers

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Quaestiones Mathematicae
    A composition of the positive integer n is a representation of n as an ordered sum of positive integers n = a1 + a2 + … + am. It is well known that there are 2 n −1 compositions...
  7. Understanding self-appraisal of HIV-infection risk among young adults in Nigeria: evidence from a national survey

    Understanding self-appraisal of HIV-infection risk among young adults in Nigeria: evidence from a national survey

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of AIDS Research
    A major component of HIV prevention is to encourage individuals to appreciate their personal risk of contracting the virus with the aim of encouraging them to take steps to reduce the risks. This article addresses the accuracy of an individual's...

    Moral Realism, Social Construction, and Realism, Social Construction, and Communal Ontology

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Philosophy
    The paper examines two forms of naturalistic moral realism, “Microstructure realism” (MSR) and “Reason realism” (RR). The latter, as we defend it, locates the objectivity of moral facts in socially constructed reality, but the former, as exemplified by David Brink’s...

    The Possibility of Religion in a Scientific and Secular Culture

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Philosophy
    In this article religion is defmed in terms of our concern for the fulfilment of our most fundamental natural desires, especially those that seem beyond all human power to fulfil, such as the achievement of death-transcending life or a complete...
  10. Use of a chimeric transgene construct to confer broad resistance in zucchini (<em>Cucurbita pepo</em> L.) plants against cucurbit-infecting potyviruses occurring in KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa

    Use of a chimeric transgene construct to confer broad resistance in zucchini (<em>Cucurbita pepo</em> L.) plants against cucurbit-infecting potyviruses occurring in KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Plant and Soil
    The frequent identification of cucurbit-infecting viruses across the province of KwaZulu-Natal (KZN) in South Africa necessitates developing effective methods of controlling these diseases. Putative transgenic baby marrow (Cucurbita pepo L.) plants resistant to Zucchini yellow mosaic virus (ZYMV), Moroccan watermelon...
