The evolution of the racial wage hierarchy in post-apartheid South Africa (2005)
Journal Article
Allanson, P., & Atkins, J. P. (2005). The evolution of the racial wage hierarchy in post-apartheid South Africa. Journal of Development Studies, 41(6), 1023-1050. doi:10.1080/00220380500155270

This article develops a multilateral decomposition procedure for the analysis of wage differentials and applies this to the evolution of the racial wage hierarchy in South Africa over the period 1993–2001. We find evidence that the wage position of t... Read More

A mechanical model for creep, recovery and stress relaxation in polymeric materials (2005)
Journal Article
Fancey, K. S. (2005). A mechanical model for creep, recovery and stress relaxation in polymeric materials. Journal of materials science, 40(18), (4827-4831). doi:10.1007/s10853-005-2020-x. ISSN 0022-2461

A mechanical model is presented, in which viscoelastic response is described by the action of time-dependent latch elements. The model represents viscoelastic changes occurring through incremental jumps as opposed to continuous motion. This is suppor... Read More

Phenotype and homing of CD4 tumor-specific T cells is modulated by tumor bulk (2005)
Journal Article
Benigni, F., Zimmermann, V. S., Hugues, S., Caserta, S., Basso, V., Rivino, L., …Mondino, A. (2005). Phenotype and homing of CD4 tumor-specific T cells is modulated by tumor bulk. Journal of Immunology, 175(2), 739-748. doi:10.4049/jimmunol.175.2.739

Technical difficulties in tracking endogenous CD4 T lymphocytes have limited the characterization of tumor-specific CD4 T cell responses. Using fluorescent MHC class II/peptide multimers, we defined the fate of endogenous Leishmania receptor for acti... Read More
