    All Day Amy Swartz Mixed Media Exhibition: Down the Rabbit Hole (Multi-Day Event)

    The Robert Langen Art Gallery's first 2017 exhibition, Down the Rabbit Hole, is a mixed media display by renowned Canadian artist Amy Swartz.

    Using incongruous materials, Amy explores synergies between the natural world, consumer culture, fantasy and her own life experience. Similar to a plastic surgeon grafting bone and skin to reconfigure the body, she performs a related type of physical manipulation by conjoining and reforming objects.

    During this process, she reflects on the complexities that link living things, and in contrast, our attempts to control life through artificial means.

    Amy Swartz is a Toronto-based visual artist. She creates highly detailed and meticulously crafted collections that combine both natural and artificial materials in sculpture, installation and drawing. Her work explores the idea of obsession — not only in the practice of art, but also in humanity’s perceived control over nature, life, and death.

  • 4:00 PM - 5:00 PM MS2Discovery Interdisciplinary Research Institute Seminar

    Speaker

    Eduardo Leandro, PhD from University of Minnesota (2001), Post-doctorate at the Bureau des Longitudes, Observatoire de Paris (2002) and Visiting professorships at Wilfrid Laurier University (2010, 2011). Professor at Universidade Federal de Pernambuco, Brazil, since 2002.Main research interests: Celestial Mechanics, especially central configurations and relative equilibria, and Mathematical Physics.

    Title

    Representation Theory of Finite Groups and the Factorization of Stability Polynomials of Relative Equilibria in Celestial Mechanics

    Abstract

    The representation theory of finite groups provides tools for factorizing the characteristic polyonomials of the matrices which appear when one studies the linear stability of symmetrical relative equilibria of the N-body problem. Such factorizations go back to the work of J. C. Maxwell on the nature and stability of Saturn rings, and it is interesting to notice that Maxwell's work appeared decades before the pioneering works of Frobenius and Burnside on group representation theory. In the talk we will present the basic concepts which permit to understand and systematize Maxwell's factorization, and provide a view on how to proceed for general symmetric relative equilibria.
