Home: American photography at the CU Art Museum
March 2 - July 15, 2017

Is home “where the heart is”? Is it a building, a landscape or a state of mind? Drawn from the photography collection of the CU Art Museum, Home investigates how American photographers working from the late 1800s to today have engaged with these questions. Through a presentation of landscapes, family photos and candid portraits visitors are invited to consider central themes of the exhibition, including environment, nostalgia and family.

What does home mean to you?
We invite our guests to respond to the images and ideas presented in the exhibition by visiting a special programming space in our FlexSpace gallery, open from February 2, 2017–March 25, 2017.

This exhibition is generously supported by CU-Boulder Student Arts and Cultural Enrichment fees, and CU Art Museum members.

CompSci Colloquium: Paul Constantine (CO School of Mines)
3:30 PM - 4:30 PM

Active Subspaces: Emerging Ideas for Dimension Reduction in Computational Science and Engineering Models

ABSTRACT: Scientists and engineers use computer simulations to study relationships between a physical model's input parameters and its output predictions. However, thorough parameter studies -- e.g., constructing response surfaces, optimizing or averaging -- are challenging, if not impossible, when the simulation is expensive and the model has several inputs. To enable parameter studies in these cases, the engineer may attempt to reduce the dimension of the model's input parameter space. Active subspaces are part of an emerging set of subspace-based dimension reduction tools that identify important directions in the input parameter space. Constantine will (i) describe computational methods for discovering a model's active subspaces, (ii) propose strategies for exploiting the reduced dimension to enable otherwise infeasible parameter studies, and (iii) review results from several science and engineering applications. For more information, visit activesubspaces.org
 
BIO: Paul G. Constantine is the Ben L. Fryrear Assistant Professor of Applied Mathematics and Statistics at Colorado School of Mines. He received his PhD from Stanford University's Institute for Computational and Mathematical Engineering and spent two years as the John von Neumann Fellow at the Sandia National Laboratories' Computer Science Research Institute. His research interests include uncertainty quantification and dimension reduction for large-scale computer simulations. For more information, visit www.mines.edu/~pconstan

THE SPY (2015)

dir.by Aleksei Andrianov

In the center of Moscow, a tense duel ensues between two intelligence services. The purpose of Hitler's secret operations is to deceive Stalin about Germany's plan to invade the Soviet Union, setting Major Oktyabrsky and Lieutenant Dorin against the genius of Nazi espionage, a battle waged over the course of a great story amid the glare of imminent war.

Free and open to the public.

English subtitles.
