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.

  • All Day Zaagi’idwin: Silent, Unquestionable Act of Love, a multimedia installation by artist Leanna Marshall (Multi-Day Event)

    Leanna Marshall is a member of Kitchenuhmaykoosib Inninuwug. Her art practice focuses on the art of ancestral storytelling – creating an intersection where viewers can meet to understand the essence of relationships, connection/disconnection and loss. Through the making and documentation of seven jingle dresses, Marshall explores the stories that have shaped her perception of the complexities of her family history in the context of Canadian history. The social inequities, resistance and sadness told in these narratives serves as a springboard to examine the act of healing, compassion and forgiveness.

  • Robert Langen Gallery
  • 9:00 AM - 4:00 PM Three Minute Thesis competition

    The Three Minute Thesis (3MT®) competition challenges research-based master’s and PhD students to present their research to a layperson audience in three minutes or less. Students are allowed one slide, but no props and no notes.

    Laurier’s graduate students will be competing March 28 from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. and 1 to 4 p.m. in the Senate and Board Chambers. Come watch the competition! It's free, no registration is necessary and drop-ins are welcome.

  • 4:00 PM - 5:00 PM Singular Periodic Brake Orbits in the Planar Pairwise Symmetric Four-Body Problem


    Lennard Bakker, Brigham Young University

    Lennard Bakker is a Professor in the Department of Mathematics at Brigham Young University. He is interested in the existence, through topological means, of symmetric periodic orbits in n-body problems with gravitational interactions, especially periodic orbits that experience regularizable collisions. Other interests are Smale's trivial centralizer problems for maps and flows, and the topological classification problem for hyperbolic total automorphisms.


    Singular Periodic Brake Orbits in the Planar Pairwise Symmetric Four-Body Problem


    We prove the existence of the periodic brake orbits that experience two distinct regularizable simultaneous binary collisions per period, in the planar pairwise symmetric four-body problem with equal masses and full symmetry among the positions of the four bodies. The analytic existence of the singular periodic brake orbits is based on differential inequalities, qualitative techniques, and the gradient-like flow on the total collision manifold obtained by the blow-up coordinates of McGehee. Before outlining the proof (through many pictures), we review some of the 44 year history of the many applications of McGehee blow-up coordinates to various N-body problems.

    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.
