Georgia Southern University faculty member Jeffrey D. Burson co-edited Enlightenment and Catholicism in Europe: A Transnational History.
Book Summary: In recent years, historians have rediscovered the religious dimensions of the Enlightenment. This volume offers a thorough reappraisal of the so-called “Catholic Enlightenment” as a transnational Enlightenment movement. This Catholic Enlightenment was at once ultramontane and conciliarist, sometimes moderate but often surprisingly radical, with participants active throughout Europe in universities, seminaries, salons, and the periodical press.
In Enlightenment and Catholicism in Europe: A Transnational History, the contributors, primarily European scholars, provide intellectual biographies of twenty Catholic Enlightenment figures across eighteenth-century Europe, ... Read more

Gestur Olafsson, Eric L. Grinberg, and David Larson et al.1-1-2014
Georgia Southern University faculty member Shijun Zheng co-authored “Harmonic Analysis Related to Schrödinger Operators” in the publication Contemporary Mathematics in AMS Book Series.
Chapter Summary: In this article we give an overview on some recent development of Littlewood-Paley theory for Schrödinger operators. We extend the Littlewood-Paley theory for special potentials considered in the authors' previous work. We elaborate our approach by considering potential in C∞0 or Schwartz class in one dimension. In particular the low energy estimates are treated by establishing some new and refined asymptotics for the eigenfunctions and their Fourier transforms. We give maximal function characterization of the ... Read more
