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.

APPM Department Colloquium - A.S. Fokas
3:00 PM - 4:00 PM

A.S. Fokas,  Department of Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics, Cambridge University

Revisiting the greats: Fourier, Laplace and Riemann

The unified transform (also referred to as the Fokas method) will be reviewed. In particular, it will be shown that this transform yields unexpected results for such classical problems as the heat equation on the half line which was first investigated by Fourier, as well as for the Laplace equation in the interior of a polygon. Interesting connections of this approach with the Riemann hypothesis has led to the proof of the Lindelof hypothesis for a close variant of the Riemann zeta function.
