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.

  • All Day C. Elizabeth Best: Nelson Small Legs Junior & Going Back Woman Exhibition (Multi-Day Event)

    This exhibition by C. Elizabeth Best explores modern Indigenous identity through her art practice and academic thesis work. See her artist statement below for a detailed description.

    On 16 May 1976, a young AIM activist killed himself in protest of the mishandling of Indigenous affairs by the Canadian federal government.

    This series of paintings complement my Master’s thesis. I made these pieces in tandem with my academic work. Despite the distance of 40 years, I mourned the loss of the young AIM activist. It wasn’t until I made a painting in his honour that I felt I could process this tragedy outside of myself.

    My second painting, the pink and turquoise rabbit, is an amalgamation of my own identity. Identity plays a central role in my thesis and this theme flowed naturally into the art I made during the past academic year.

    The series of three represent the main chapters of my paper. When I think about my thesis, bits and pieces float in and out of focus. I tried to capture that feeling with this series by using my notes to produce a visual representation of my thesis.

    This series represents the process I went through to understand the material I was reading and writing about. I think it is important for academics to experiment with different ways of presenting their work. Expression through art is how I have chosen to present my academic work to a varied audience. For more information, please see my thesis, Writing Activism: Indigenous Newsprint
    Media in the Era of Red Power, accessible through the Laurier Library.

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

    The MS2Discovery Interdisciplinary Research Institute Seminar

    Speaker

    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.

    Title

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

    Abstract

    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.
