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

The generalized Schrödinger equation with the Kerr and saturation nonlinearities is used to investigate the filamentation instability and localization of arbitrarily large amplitude optical pulses in nonlinear media. The existence of finite amplitude optical clumps (optical solitons or light bullets) is demonstrated. Conditions under which the filamentation instability and light localization arise are presented.
