    Orbital angular momentum (OAM) entanglement is investigated in the Bessel-Gaussian (BG) basis. Having a readily adjustable radial scale, BG modes provide an alternative basis for OAM entanglement over Laguerre-Gaussian ...
  • Jacobs, D; Kotze, P; Van der Merwe, A; Gerber, A (2011-05)
    A key constraint for growing small and medium enterprises (SMEs) is the business skills required to grow the enterprises through the stages of transformation. Criticism against growth stage models for SMEs is of concern, ...
  • Coetzee, J; Erasmus, L (INCOSE, 2013-08)
    In this paper it is proposed that Enterprise architecture in principle develops the Logistic Support model for systems on System Hierarchical Level 6 and higher. The Enterprise architectural model is a blue print, like the ...
  • De Vries, M; Gerber, A; Van der Merwe, A (SpringerLink, 2015-06)

    Small enterprises are important in the growth of economies and they stimulate the economy through employment, skill transfer and by addressing market segments neglected by big businesses, for example provision of services ...
  • Grobler, J; Engelbrecht, AP; Kendall, G; Yadavalli, VSS (IEEE, 2014-12)
    This paper extends the investigation into the algorithm selection problem in hyper-heuristics, otherwise referred to as the entity-to-algorithm allocation problem, introduced by Grobler et al.. Two newly developed ...
  • Rabie, CJ; Lubben, A; Marais, GJ; Jansen van Vuuren, H (Elsevier Science BV, 1997-04-01)
    Estimation of fungal contamination of barley grain is important as certain fungi can proliferate during the malting process. The following factors which may affect the enumeration of fungi were evaluated: dilution versus ...
  • Van der Merwe, H; Thachuk, O; Nel, S; Van der Merwe, B; Visser, W (ACM, 2015-11)
    Software applications are developed to be executed in a specific environment. This environment includes external/ native libraries to add functionality to the application and drivers to fire the application execution. For ...
  • Nahman, Anton; Wise, R; De Lange, Willem J (Academy of Science of South Africa, 2009-09)
