Jane Austen & Charles Darwin : naturalists and novelists by Peter W Graham( Book )

10 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 354 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Are Jane Austen and Charles Darwin the two great English empiricists of the nineteenth century? Peter W. Graham poses this question as he brings these two icons of nineteenth-century British culture into intellectual conversation in his provocative new book, Graham shows that while the one is generally termed a naturalist (Darwin's preferred term for himself) and the other a novelist, these characterizations are at least partially interchangeable, as each author possessed skills that would serve well in either arena. Both Austen and Darwin are naturalists who look with a sharp, cold eye at the concrete particulars of the world around them. Both are in certain senses novelists who weave densely particularized and convincingly grounded narratives that convey their personal observations and perceptions to wide readerships. When taken seriously, the words and works of Austen and Darwin encourage their readers to look closely at the social and natural worlds around them and form opinions based on individual judgment rather than on transmitted opinion"--Jacket

Darwin's sciences : how Charles Darwin voyaged from rocks to worms in his search for facts to explain how the earth, its geological features, and its inhabitants evolved by Duncan M Porter( Book )

6 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 37 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A complete scientific biography of Darwin that takes into account the latest research findings, both published and unpublished, on the life of this remarkable man. Considered the first book to thoroughly emphasize Darwin's research in various fields of endeavor, what he did, why he did it, and its implications for his time and ours. Rather than following a strictly chronological approach - a narrative choice that characteristically offers an ascent to On the Origin of Species (1859) with a rapid decline in interest following its publication and reception - this book stresses the diversity a
The honnete homme in English literature : 1819-1833 by Peter W Graham( )

The place of Lord Byron in world history : studies in his life, writings, and influence : selected papers from the 35th International Byron Conference by International Byron Conference( Book )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is a collection of essays on Lord Byron's writings. Topics range from Byron's reception in other cultures and histories, to Byron's unique conception of history, to essays dealing with his personal history, and the usage of Byron's works in cultural history writ large. There are also papers dealing with how Byron has been held up as an exceptional writer whose work has been emulated for many years. As history remains cyclical, Byron's compelling imagery serves as descriptive of destruction, regeneration, and the unyielding predicaments of modern life

Searching for the QCD axion with black holes and gravitational waves by Maria Baryakhtar( )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Advanced LIGO may be the first experiment to detect gravitational waves. Through superradiance of stellar black holes, it may also be the first experiment to discover the QCD axion with decay constant above the grand unification scale. When an axion's Compton wavelength is comparable to the size of a black hole, the axion binds to the black hole, forming a ``gravitational atom.'' Through the superradiance process, the number of axions occupying the bound levels grows exponentially, extracting energy and angular momentum from the black hole. Axions transitioning between levels of the gravitational atom and axions annihilating to gravitons can produce observable gravitational wave signals. The signals are long-lasting, monochromatic, and can be distinguished from ordinary astrophysical sources. We estimate up to order one transition events at aLIGO and up to ten thousand annihilation events. In the event of a null search, aLIGO can constrain the axion mass for a range of rapidly spinning black hole formation rates. Axion annihilations are also promising for much lighter masses at future lower-frequency gravitational wave observatories; the rates have large uncertainties, dominated by supermassive black hole spin distributions. Our projections for aLIGO are robust against perturbations from the black hole environment and account for our updated exclusion on the QCD axion suggested by stellar black hole spin measurements
