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 collective coupling of neutrinos and anti-neutrinos in a dense plasma is considered. Such a coupling is provided by the existence of electron plasma waves. These waves can parametrically excite neutrino–anti-neutrino pairs, and the parametric decay rate is established. This stimulated process for neutrino pair production can eventually become dominant over the single particle decay rates characteristic of the usual Urca process and provide an alternative mechanism for the neutrino cooling of collapsing neutron stars.
