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

Linear and nonlinear mechanisms for the generation of large amplitude lower-hybrid waves are presented. It is shown that finite amplitude lower-hybrid waves parametrically couple with non-resonant density and temperature perturbations. Accounting for the E × B0, the ponderomotive force, and the differential Joule heating nonlinearities, we derive a set of nonlinear equations governing fast and slow plasma motions in magnetized plasmas. The equations can be used to study the modulational instabilities, the caviton formation, and the generation of drift vortices. The results of our investigation should be useful for the understanding of the nonlinear propagation and absorption of lower-hybrid waves in laboratory and space plasmas.
