Atlas Of Neutron Resonances. The Atlas of Neutron Resonances provides detailed information on neutron resonances, thermal neutron cross sections, and average resonance properties which are important to neutron physicist, astrophysicists, solid state physicists, reactor engineers, scientists involved in activation analysis, and evaluators of neutron cross sections. · Compilation and evaluation of the world's thermal neutron cross-sections and resonance parameters for neutron physicists, reactor engineers, and neutron evaluators. · Compilation and evaluation of coherent scattering lengths for solid state physicists and evaluators · Compilation and evaluation of average 30-keV capture cross sections for astrophysicists. · Nuclear level density parameters derived from average spacings of neutron resonances following a new approach (new feature for this edition). · Brief review of sub-threshold fission. · Comparisons of optical model predictions with neutron strength function data and scattering lengths. · Estimation of average E1 radiative widths on the basis of the generalized Landau-Fermi liquid model (a new feature for this edition).

Giant Resonances. Giant resonances are collective excitations of the atomic nucleus, a typical quantum many-body system. The study of these fundamental modes has in many respects contributed to our understanding of the bulk behaviour of the nucleus and of the dynamics of non-equilibrium excitations. Although the phenomenon of giant resonances has been known for more than 50 years, a large amount of information has been obtained in the last 10 years. This book gives an up-to-date, comprehensive account of our present knowledge of giant resonances. It presents the experimental facts and the techniques used to obtain that information, describes how these facts fit into theoretical concepts and how this allows to determine various nuclear properties which are otherwise difficult to obtain. Included as an introduction is an overview of the main facts, a short history of how the field has developed in the course of time, and a discussion of future perspectives.

J R R Tolkien And His Literary Resonances. Although Tolkien's literary works have, over the past few decades, attracted a considerable and varied body of criticism, much of this material is inaccessible, unreflective, and repetitive. Though various scholars have treated Tolkien's sources and his concept of fantasy, this study situates the author in a broad literary context that includes ancient metrical modes, medieval culture, Renaissance poetics, 19th-century social movements, and modern critical thought. Each chapter is written by an expert contributor and examines the literary resonances of Tolkien's works from a variety of informed perspectives.

Resonances In The Earth Ionosphere Cavity. This book on electromagnetic resonance phenomena describes a general approach to physical problems, ways to solve them, and properties of the solutions obtained. Attention is given to the discussion and interpretation of formal and experimental data and their links to global atmospheric conditions such as the dynamics of global thunderstorm activity, variations of the effective height of the lower ionosphere, etc. Schumann resonance is related to worldwide thunderstorm activity, and simultaneously, to global properties of the lower ionosphere. Transverse resonance is predominantly a local phenomenon containing information on the local height and conductivity of the lower ionosphere and on nearby thunderstorm activity. Transient events in ELF-VLF radio propagation are also treated. These are natural pulsed radio signals and/or abrupt changes of manmade VLF radio signals. The transients associated with cloud-to-ionosphere discharges (red sprites, blue jets, trolls) are discussed, and clarification of the underlying physical ideas and their practical applications to pioneer results achieved in the field recently are emphasised.

Strong On Music Resonances 1836 1850. Resonances is the first volume of Strong on Music, Vera Brodsky Lawrence's comprehensive, three-volume chronicle of the little-known New York music scene from 1836 to 1875, based on the superb private journal of George Templeton Strong, one of the great primary records of nineteenth-century America. Over this forty-year period, Strong, an avid and articulate music lover, attended a great number and variety of musical events and recorded his responses to them in his journal. Taking these comments--few of them previously published--as a point of departure, Lawrence has rounded out the scene with a fully documented account of the many worlds of music outside Strong's circle, culled from music criticism, editorial comment, gossip, and advertising found in the New York daily and periodical press. Resonances immerses us in the deluge of music that from the early 1830s through 1849 descended upon the New York public, vividly portraying concerts, oratorios, and operas, as well as an amazing profusion of musicals, burlettas, melodramas, opera travesties, blackface minstrel shows, and other forms of popular music. We meet glamorous opera stars and spectacular instrumental virtuosos from abroad, feuding Italian opera companies, the New York Philharmonic Society, and the vicious breed of music critics who agreed only in their antagonism toward emerging American composers. A blend of meticulous scholarship and witty commentary, Resonances informatively and entertainingly reveals for the first time a fascinating and important area of our cultural past.
