TitleThe Starlight Night : The Sky in the Writings of Shakespeare, Tennyson, and Hopkins
Author(s)Levy, David H
PublicationCham, 1. Imprint: Springer 2. Springer International Publishing, 2016.
DescriptionXXXII, 214 p. 27 illus., 21 illus. in color : online resource
Abstract NoteIn this updated second edition renowned amateur comet-searcher David H. Levy expands on his work about the intricate relationship between the night sky and the works of English Literature. This revised and expanded text includes new sections on Alfred Lord Tennyson and Gerald Manley Hopkins (both amateur astronomers), extending the time period analyzed in the first edition from early modern literature to encompass the Victorian age. Although the sky enters into much of literature through the ages, British authors offer an especially fertile connection to the heavens, and Levy links the works of seminal authors from Shakespeare on to specific celestial events and scientific advances.?? From the impact of comets and supernovae to eclipses, Levy???s ultimate goal in this book is to inspire his readers to do the same thing as their ancestors did so long ago???look up and appreciate the stars. His insights in this revised book spread farther and wider than ever before in this learned and enchanting tour of the skies

TitleStarBriefs 2001 : A Dictionary of Abbreviations, Acronyms and Symbols in Astronomy, Related Space Sciences and Other Related Fields
PublicationDordrecht, 1. Imprint: Springer 2. Springer Netherlands, 2001.
DescriptionVII, 813 p : online resource
Abstract NoteThis compilation probably looks like one of the craziest things a human being could spend his or her time on. Yet nobody would wonder at someone taking a short walk every day - after twenty five years that person would have covered a surprisingly long distance. This is exactly the story behind this list, which appeared first as a few pages within the directory StarGuides (or whatever name it had at that time) and as a distinct sister publication since 1990. The idea behind this dictionary is to offer astronomers and related space scientists practical assistance in decoding the numerous abbreviations, acronyms, contractions and symbols which they might encounter in all aspects of the vast range of their professional activities, including traveling. Perhaps it is a bit paradoxical, but if scientists quickly grasp the meaning of an acronym solely in their own specific discipline, they will probably encounter more difficulties when dealing with adjacent fields. It is for this purpose that this dictionary might be most often used. Scientists might also refer to this compilation in order to avoid identifying a project by an acronym which already has too many meanings or confused definitions

TitleThe Language Phenomenon : Human Communication from Milliseconds to Millennia
Author(s)Binder, P.-M;Smith, K
PublicationBerlin, Heidelberg, 1. Imprint: Springer 2. Springer Berlin Heidelberg, 2013.
DescriptionVIII, 251 p : online resource
Abstract NoteThis volume contains a contemporary, integrated description of the processes of language. These range from fast scales (fractions of a second) to slow ones (over a million years). The contributors, all experts in their fields, address language in the brain, production of sentences and dialogues, language learning, transmission and evolutionary processes that happen over centuries or millenia, the relation between language and genes, the origins of language, self-organization, and language competition and death. The book as a whole will help to show how processes at different scales affect each other, thus presenting language as a dynamic, complex and profoundly human phenomenon

TitleLearning About Particles - 50 Privileged Years
Author(s)Steinberger, Jack
PublicationBerlin, Heidelberg, 1. Imprint: Springer 2. Springer Berlin Heidelberg, 2005.
DescriptionX, 181 p : online resource
Abstract NoteEmbedded in an autobiographic framework, this book retraces vividly and in some depth the golden years of particle physics as witnessed by one of the scientists who made seminal contributions to the understanding of what is now known as the Standard Model of particle physics. Well beyond a survey of interest to historians of sciences and researchers in the field, this book is a must for all students and young researchers who have learned about the theoretical and experimental facts that make up the standard model through modern textbooks only. It will provide the interested reader with a first hand account and deeper understanding of the multilayered and sinuous development that finally led to the present architecture of this theory

TitleThe Sky in Early Modern English Literature : A Study of Allusions to Celestial Events in Elizabethan and Jacobean Writing, 1572-1620
Author(s)Levy, David H
PublicationNew York, NY, 1. Imprint: Springer 2. Springer New York, 2011.
DescriptionXXIX, 111 p : online resource
Abstract NoteWhen a dissertation gets completed, the normal rule is that it is never read. By anyone.????David H. Levy???s dissertation - The Sky in Early Modern English Literature:?? A Study of Allusions to Celestial Events in Elizabethan and Jacobean Writing, 1572-1620 - is different.?? It opens a whole new interdisciplinary field, which involves the beautiful relationship between the night sky and the works of the early modern period of English Literature.?? Although the sky enters into much of literature through the ages, the period involving William Shakespeare and his colleagues is particularly rich.?? ???????????????????????? When Shakespeare was about 8 years old, his father probably took him outside his Stratford home into their northward-facing back yard.?? There, father and son gazed upon the first great new star visible in the past 500 years, shining forth as brightly as Venus, and even visible in daylight.?? This new star, which we now know as a supernova, completely unhinged old ideas about the cosmos.?? Combined with a parade of bright comets, a second bright new star in 1604, and a series of eclipses, people began to look at the sky more seriously.?? In this book, Levy explores how the sky of that period was reflected in its literature. ???????????????????????? Levy???s ultimate goal in this book is to inspire his readers to do the same thing as their ancestors did so long ago???look at the sky and appreciate how those long-gone authors read the sky

TitleAstrolinguistics : Design of a Linguistic System for Interstellar Communication Based on Logic
Author(s)Ollongren, Alexander
PublicationNew York, NY, 1. Imprint: Springer 2. Springer New York, 2013.
DescriptionXV, 248 p. 4 illus. in color : online resource
Abstract NoteIn linguistics, one of the main areas of modern research involves the capabilities and possibilities of there being a "lingua cosmica," a LINCOS, a universal language that could be used to communicate with non-human intelligences. This book touches on the area of the development and use of a "lingua universalis" for interstellar communication, but it also presents concepts that cover a broad area of linguistics. Chomsky's paradigm on universal properties of natural languages, for a long time a leading general theory of natural languages, includes the strong assumption that humans are born with some kind of universals stored in their brains. Are there universals of this kind of language used by intelligent beings and societies elsewhere in the universe? We do not know whether such languages exist. It seems to be impossible to determine, simply because the universe is too large for an exhaustive search. Even verification will be hard to obtain, without quite a bit of luck. This book uses astrolinguistic principles in message construction and is helpful in clarifying and giving perspective to discussions on existential questions such as these

TitleE.T. Talk : How Will We Communicate with Intelligent Life on Other Worlds?
Author(s)Ballesteros, Fernando J
PublicationNew York, NY, 1. Imprint: Springer 2. Springer New York, 2010.
DescriptionXIX, 212 p. 82 illus., 15 illus. in color : online resource
Abstract NoteAlthough we have done extensive studies of the Solar System and thus far found over 300 extrasolar planets ??? planets outside our Solar System ??? we have not yet found life, even primitive life, on any planet other than Earth. Might there be life on some of these newly discovered extrasolar planets? Not likely, as most are gas giants or are too close or too far from their sun. However, of late we are finding more and more Earthlike planets. It is now estimated that about 15 percent of the planets in the galaxy are Earthlike, and many of these will likely orbit their suns at the right distance to support life as we know it. No one knows yet if radio searches or other means of detection will reveal that we are not alone in the universe. But if we do discover intelligent life elsewhere, how will we communicate with it? Are there some ???universal??? methods of communication we can use? Is music or mathematics a universal language? Are there alien intelligences right here on Earth we can use to help us figure out ways of communicating? The answers may surprise you. All of these issues and more are covered in this exciting, readable, and authoritative book on a subject that is not mere idle speculation anymore. We are certainly getting closer to finding out who, if anybody, is out there. This book will not only inform you about the search and the likelihood of finding life, it will also actually teach you how to talk to aliens!
