Literary linguistics: Open Access research in English language

Strathprints makes available Open Access scholarly outputs by English Studies at Strathclyde. Particular research specialisms include literary linguistics, the study of literary texts using techniques drawn from linguistics and cognitive science.

The team also demonstrates research expertise in Renaissance studies, researching Renaissance literature, the history of ideas and language and cultural history. English hosts the Centre for Literature, Culture & Place which explores literature and its relationships with geography, space, landscape, travel, architecture, and the environment.

Abstract

We report a new approach for accurate calculation of optical cross sections and internal and scattered fields at any point in space for micro- and nanoparticles. Our approach is based on constructing the intrinsic optical modes of general smooth particles and hence optimised surface Green functions that, for any incident field, provide an a priori upper bound on the error and identify the class of incident fields with largest error.
