The Cambridge history of Western music theory by Thomas Street Christensen( Book )

40 editions published between 2001 and 2011 in English and Chinese and held by 937 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Publisher Description (unedited publisher data) The Cambridge History of Western Music Theory is the first comprehensive history of Western music theory to be published in the English language. A collaborative project by leading music theorists and historians, the volume traces the rich panorama of music-theoretical thought from the Ancient Greeks to the present day. Recognizing the variety and complexity of music theory as an historical subject, the volume has been organized within a flexible framework. Some chapters are defined chronologically within a restricted historical domain whilst others are defined conceptually and span historical periods. Together the thirty-one chapters present a synthetic overview of the fascinating and complex subject that is historical music theory. Richly enhanced with illustrations, graphics, examples and cross-citations, as well as being thoroughly indexed and supplemented by comprehensive bibliographies of the most important primary and secondary literature, this book will be an invaluable resource for students and scholars alike.

Rameau and musical thought in the Enlightenment by Thomas Street Christensen( Book )

20 editions published between 1993 and 2004 in English and held by 660 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the first intellectual biography of the French composer and theorist Jean-Philippe Rameau. Rameau synthesised the vocabulary and grammar of musical practice into a concise scientific system, earning himself the popular title of 'Newton of the Arts'. Ranging widely over the musical and intellectual thought of the eighteenth century, Thomas Christensen is able to orient Rameau's accomplishments in the light of speculative and practical considerations of music theory as well as many of the scientific ideas current in the French Enlightenment. He shows how Rameau incorporates ideas ranging from neoplatonic thought and Cartesian mechanistic metaphysics to Locke's empirical psychology and Newtonian experimental science. Additional primary documents help clarify Rameau's fascinating and stormy relationship with the Encyclopedists, Diderot, Rousseau and d'Alembert [Publisher description]

From classical to quantum plasmonics in three and two dimensions by Thomas Christensen( Book )

4 editions published in 2017 in English and German and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This thesis provides a comprehensive introduction to two active research directions within the field of plasmonics: (i) nonclassical, or quantum, aspects of the plasmonic response; and (ii) two-dimensional plasmonics, a recent innovation in the field stimulated by the advent of two-dimensional materials. It discusses the fundamentals of this field in detail, and explores several current research directions. Nonclassical plasmonics has been spurred on in recent years by the tremendous technological progress in nanofabrication and optical characterization; today, it is possible to investigate the plasmonic features of nanostructures with characteristic features in the few nanometer range. The book describes and analyzes the breakdown of the classical theory under these conditions and explores several alternatives and extensions. The unique electronic and dimensional features of novel two-dimensional materials, such as graphene, lie at the core of plasmonics' most rapidly developing subfield; two-dimensional plasmonics. This thesis provides a clear and comprehensive exposition of the central features for interested researchers looking for an entry point to this riveting area.

Asymétrie conditionnelle et asymétrie spontanée des progressions harmoniques. Le rôle des dissonances dans la cristallisation de la syntaxe harmonique tonale, c. 1530-1745 by Christophe Guillotel - Nothmann( )

1 edition published in 2013 in French and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The theory of harmonic vectors identifies the asymmetry of root progressions as one of the most outstanding characteristics of tonal harmonic language. This study aims at explaining this phenomenon by defining, from a theoretical and empirical point of view, the evolution of the relationship between contrapuntal constraints - including the treatment of dissonance - and the asymmetry of root progressions. The reading of German treaties from 1548 to 1745 helps to consider the phenomenon of dissonance in its technical and rhetorical aspects, establishes links with the theories of cadence and triad, and investigates the semiotic, cognitive, aesthetic and philosophical principles that underlie the origin of asymmetry. In order to determine the evolution of correlation and causality between the asymmetry of root progressions and the treatment of the dissonance from an empirical point of view, this study will exploit the analysis of the counterpoint and harmony of a corpus of madrigals from 1530-1638. This computer-assisted statistical analysis aims at examining, form a synchronic and diachronic point of view, the links between the overall asymmetry and the asymmetry associated with dissonances. It explores the relationship between verbal and musical semantics and syntax and investigates the bonds between the asymmetry of root progressions and other characteristics of the harmonic syntax, including harmonic rhythm, morphology of chords and phenomena of polarization

Eurobarometer 57.0 : Agriculture, Energy, and Discrimination Issues, February-April 2002 by Thomas Street Christensen( )

2 editions published between 2003 and 2005 in No Linguistic content and English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This round of Eurobarometer surveys diverged from standard trend questions, instead focusing on agriculture, energy, and discrimination issues. Respondents gave their views on the role of the agricultural policy of the European Union (EU), whether the policy was playing its role well or badly, in what situations the EU should use an agricultural policy, and whether the EU should subsidize agricultural products or grant more funds to the overall rural economy and to direct support for farmers. Another subject of the surveys was energy problems. Respondents indicated to what extent different sources of energy were used in their countries, whether energy use was increasing, which energy sources contributed significantly to global warming and climate change, and which factors could make a significant impact on the amount of energy used in the EU. Those polled provided their opinions on how to solve the problem of EU dependency on other countries in terms of energy supply, what governments' priorities with respect to energy should be, and the main reason for lack of interest among young people in energy-related matters. They were also asked what they were doing to save energy, what energy-saving measures they would support, whether they would pay more for energy produced from renewable sources, whether they paid attention to energy use when buying products, whether they knew how much they paid for electricity last year, and whether they were aware of EU activities in energy-related research. Respondents named what sources they used to obtain information about energy issues, gave their opinions about producing nuclear energy using nuclear fusion, named energy-related areas that they would like to know more about, indicated which energy sources would be least expensive, most efficient, and environmentally friendly in 2050, and commented on whether in 20 years all energy needs would be satisfied by one or by a mix of different energy sources, and if so, which ones. The poll also elicited respondents' views on discrimination issues. Those polled were asked whether in the last two years they themselves were discriminated against or harassed or witnessed someone being discriminated against or harassed at work, when looking for a job, in public places, when getting housing, or when they were at school, and if so, what the reason was. Respondents were also asked whether they and people in general thought that it was right/wrong to refuse to give anyone a job, training, or promotion, or to deal differently with customers based on their ethnicity, religion, physical disability, mental illness, age, or sexual orientation. In addition, respondents were asked whether they knew their rights in case they felt discriminated against and whether they were willing to complain or go to court if something like that happened. Demographic and other background information collected includes respondents' age, gender, nationality, marital status, left-right political self-placement, occupation, age at completion of education, household income, type and size of locality, and region of residence

Eurobarometer 57.2 : Health Issues, Cross-Border Purchases, and National Identities, April-June 2002 by Thomas Street Christensen( )

2 editions published between 2003 and 2005 in No Linguistic content and English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This round of Eurobarometer surveys diverged from standard trend questions, instead focusing on health issues, cross-border purchases, and national identities. European Union (EU) respondents provided information on their health status, including whether they had long-standing illness that limited their work or daily activities. They also answered questions about the health care system in their countries and indicated how well health care was run, whether the government should spend more money on health care, and if they were willing to pay more taxes to contribute to health care. They were also asked how well they were getting by with their households' income, who should pay for taking care of elderly parents, and who should decide what long-term care services an elderly person needs. Another major focus of the surveys was cross-border purchases. EU respondents were asked whether in the last 12 months they bought anything for private use in stores located in other European Union countries, and if so, how they bought the product and how much they paid for it. They were also asked whether the introduction of the euro and the possibility of buying online made them more interested in buying products or services from other EU countries, whether in the last 12
Eurobarometer 54.2 : Impact of New Technologies, Employment and Social Affairs, and Disabilities, January-February 2001 by Thomas Street Christensen( )

2 editions published between 2002 and 2008 in No Linguistic content and English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Whether better career prospects, financial circumstances, social benefits, public services, or social life would encourage them to move. On the subject of the disabled, respondents were asked if they personally knew anyone (including a family member, friend, acquaintance, neighbor, colleague, client, pupil/student, or other) with a disability or infirmity that limited their activities, how at ease they felt in the presence of people with disabilities, and how at ease people in general felt in the presence of people with disabilities. They were asked how difficult they thought it was for certain groups of people with disabilities (i.e., blind, deaf, physically and intellectually disabled people) to access public transport and services, restaurants, university or school, their work place, sports events, and cultural events, whether access to public places for people with disabilities had improved over the last ten years, who was actually responsible for making improvements in these matters (e.g., local authorities, national government, non-governmental organizations, the EU, etc.), and who should be responsible. They were asked to indicate how aware they were of each of 21 types of disabilities (e.g., visual, hearing, neuromuscular, skeletal, arthritis, cancer
Eurobarometer 55.1 : Globalization and Humanitarian Aid, April-May 2001 by Thomas Street Christensen( )

1 edition published in 2002 and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This round of Eurobarometer surveys queried respondents on standard Eurobarometer measures, such as how satisfied they were with their present lives, whether they attempted to persuade others close to them to share their views on subjects they held strong opinions about, and whether they discussed political matters. Additional questions focused on respondents' knowledge of and opinions on the European Union (EU), including how well informed they felt about the EU, what sources of information about the EU they used, and whether their country had benefited from being an EU member. Another major focus of the surveys was globalization. Respondents were asked about the effects of globalization and trade liberalization, whether the EU was in favor of international free trade, and which institution should take the effects of globalization under control. Those polled presented their knowledge of the World Trade Organization, gave their opinions about who was the largest exporter of products and services in the world, specified the aspects of trade negotiations that should be considered by the EU, and commented on whether it was good that the EU negotiated international trade issues on behalf of all EU member states. Humanitarian aid was another major topic of the
Eurobarometer 55.0 : European Union Enlargement, the Euro, and Dialogue on Europe, March-April 2001 by Thomas Street Christensen( )

1 edition published in 2002 and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This round of Eurobarometer surveys, which diverged from the standard topics, focused on respondents' views regarding the enlargement of the European Union, public discussions on the future of Europe (Dialogue on Europe), and the single European currency, the euro. Given a list of 21 European countries that were not European Union (EU) members plus Morocco, respondents were asked which countries they had heard of, which they had visited or planned to visit, which they had ties to, which they thought had been accepted as candidates to join the European Union, which should be the first to join, which should not join, and which countries they wanted to know more about in terms of various topical areas. Those polled were asked a number of questions about the planned EU enlargement, such as how many countries should be allowed to join, which member countries would benefit most from enlargement, whether enlargement would benefit respondents' personal lives, how they rated the development of the European Union, their level of satisfaction with the speed of enlargement, and which criteria should govern whether applicants were admitted to the EU. Opinions were elicited on a number of possible effects of enlargement, some possible negative effects of participation in
