All Day LIFT Exhibition Series: Unobstructed Beauty (Multi-Day Event)

This year, the LIFT series features three female painters from the Waterloo Region: Lauren Judge, Marion R. Anderson, and Anne Filiatrault. Each artist shares a narrative that invites viewers to reflect on how we perceive and experience our surrounding environment.

The LIFT microgalleries are located on floors 4-6 of the Waterloo campus Library daily from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.

    4:00 PM - 5:00 PM Geometric Theory of Separation of Variables, Integrability, Superintegrability and Quantization

    The MS2Discovery Interdisciplinary Research Institute Seminar


    Giovanni Rastelli, University of Torino, Italy Giovanni Rastelli is a researcher in mathematical physics affiliated to the Department of Mathematics of the University of Torino, Italy.


    Geometric Theory of Separation of Variables, Integrability, Superintegrability and Quantization


    The solution of the Hamilton-Jacobi equation of natural Hamiltonian systems, a PDE, can be sometimes obtained by solving a system of separated ODEs in suitable coordinate systems. The geometric theory of separation of variables investigates necessary and sufficient conditions for this task. The same theory characterizes the separability of Helmholtz, Laplace, Schroedinger and Dirac equations. A result of the theory is the characterization of separability in terms of polynomial constants of motion in involution, determining the Liouville integrability of any separable system. The separability in different coordinate systems is often associated with superintegrability, the existence of more constants of motion than necessary for integrability. In recent years, the superintegrability of Hamiltonian systems, and its behaviour in the process of quantization of classical constants of motion, is attracting the interest of many researchers. We review the basis of the theory of separation of variables and its application in recent studies about superintegrabilty and quantization.

  • 5:30 PM - 7:00 PM Games Night

    We are running a Game Night on Wednesdays in the Digital Library and Learning Commons (room 108 in Grand River Hall) starting January 10th as a partnership with Laurier International, the YMCA and the Laurier Library for international students and newcomers in our community! The program has been developed to bring together members of the community through gaming and to encourage the development of friendships and English-second language skills. 

    Email Michelle Goodridge at if you’d like to volunteer - we can offer co-curricular credit for your time.
