After Whistler

When Blum was in London in 1885, on his way to Venice, he "fully expected to call on Whistler," but his stay in London was too brief (Blum to William Merritt Chase, July ;, 1885, Chapellier Gallery Papers, AAA).

Whistler Phenomena

In this volume, the authors present theoretical explanations for a few basic problems connected with the propagation of extra wide band, short impulses in linear media, and with the propagation of whistlers and megawhistlers in plasmas. In addition, the book provides an overview of ground and space based measurements, digital processing and signal analysis. The theoretical treatment in this volume is original in the sense that, unlike former solutions, the authors present a fundamentally non-monochromatic approach. A key feature of this approach is the application of the `Laplace Transformation' and the `Method of Inhomogeneous Basic Modes' to solve Maxwell's equations. It is shown that when the obtained theoretical results are applied to digital recordings, the wave analysis process becomes so flexible that it can also be used to investigate other wave propagation problems. These are both terrestrial phenomena (like atmospheric and seismic activity, buried target detection, etc.) and phenomena in space (planetary, interplanetary, plasmaspheric, whistler and megawhistler propagation). The book is aimed at a technical and professional audience working on whistler science and/or wave propagation problems.

Whistler

A biography of James McNeill Whistler (1834-1903) that dispels the popular notion of Whistler as merely a combative, eccentric and unrelenting publicity seeker, a man as renowned for his public feuds with Oscar Wilde and John Ruskin as for the iconic portrait of his mother.

Whistler mode Waves in a Hot Plasma

The only practical way of measuring the latter parameter is to identify the so called sferic related to the corresponding discharge. Sferics are the waves generated during the same process and in the same frequency range as whistlers.

Whistler mode Waves in a Hot Plasma

Whistler mode Waves in a Hot Plasma

The book provides an extensive theoretical treatment of whistler-mode propagation, instabilities, and damping in a collisionless plasma. It takes into account different aspects of the electron distribution function, such as temperature, anisotropy, loss cone character and the existence of beams, each of which is of relevance to the study of plasma dynamics, particularly in the conditions of the Earth's magnetosphere. This book fills a gap between oversimplified analytical studies of these waves, based on the cold plasma approximation, and studies based on numerical methods. Emphasis is made on the analysis of relativistic effects on whistler-mode propagation, which has been neglected in most previous studies of this phenomenon. These effects are particularly important in the case of whistler-mode propagation in a rarefied plasma. Consistency between analytical results and the results of numerical analyses confirms the validity of both approaches to the problem.

Whistler and His Mother

Whistler and His Mother

James McNeill Whistler painted his mother on impulse, when she came to London to escape the American Civil War, forcing him to evict his mistress from his house. It is hard to imagine a greater contrast than that between Whistler's outrageously flamboyant life in London—where he famously befriended Oscar Wilde and Dante Gabriel Rossetti—and the subdued, touchingly melancholic depiction of his Puritan mother he entitled “Arrangement in Grey and Black.” This portrait has become one of the world's best-known paintings and an American icon, yet we know remarkably little about it. While restoring the painting for the Louvre, Sarah Walden became intrigued by the extraordinary and complex history of the painting, which had never been fully explored. From French, British, and American sources, Walden uncovers the intersections between Whistler's flawed genius, his struggle for recognition, his troubled relationship with his mother and mistresses, and the unprecedented historical response to his greatest work. Walden's findings read like a detective story, and her controversial and progressive views on art restoration combine with biography and criticism to create a gripping narrative that skillfully weaves history and aesthetics into a seamless tapestry.
