|"The Catapult Center, directed by William R. Newman, Distinguished Professor and Ruth N. Halls Professor in the Department of History and Philosophy of Science, will bring together a network of scholars from IU [Indiana Univ.] and the outside world in the rapidly expanding fields of digital editing, computational analysis of texts and material analysis of textual collections.
"For nearly a decade, Newman's own work has focused on the Chymistry of Isaac Newton project . The project combines a digital edition of the famous scientist's alchemical works with analytical tools derived from computational linguistics, alongside laboratory replication of Newton's chemical experiments, carried out with the aid of the College's Department of Chemistry."
