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.

We describe analytically and numerically the quasi-classical collapse of strong lower-hybrid waves. Such collapse leads to two disparate scales corresponding to macro and micro structures due to the nonlinear interaction. The wavelength of waves trapped within the cavity are much smaller than the cavity dimension and decrease during the collapse process much faster. We obtain self-similar solutions describing this phenomenon, which conserves the number of trapped wave quanta, corresponding to strong collapse and compare the results with a particle in cell simulation.
