Event Image Exhibition: Animals In Antiquity (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

Animals in Antiquity
A collaborative exhibition between the CU Art Museum and the CU Museum of Natural History 
On view September 18, 2015 - September 2016 

The desire to assign symbolic meanings to animals that share our world links human cultures across time. Whether rendered figuratively or abstractly, depictions of animals remind us not only of themselves but also of the qualities and traits we assign to them. They can illustrate human traits—the coyote as trickster, the cat aloof—and teach children behaviors and ideals from fables. Humans have worshipped animals, hunted and consumed them for food, and altered the natural environments of animals, all in the name of humanity.

This exhibition is a celebration of animals in art and animals as artifacts. The objects are from across the Earth and span the last 4,000 years of human history. We invite you to ponder what these objects represented and how the makers used them in their daily lives.    

Curated by Erin Baxter, doctoral candidate in anthropology

This exhibition is generously supported by the Department of Classics, CU Boulder Student Arts and Cultural Enrichment fees, and CU Art Museum members.

Event Image Exhibit: Shakespeare's Bouquet (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

**Please check http://www.colorado.edu/libraries/contact-us/hours for Norlin Library hours**

CU-Boulder was named the Colorado host of First Folio! The Book that Gave Us Shakespeare, on tour from the Folger Shakespeare Library to all 50 states, Washington, D.C., and Puerto Rico. To complement the folio, University Libraries are hosting an exhibition of botanical art that reflects plants found in writings of the Bard. It’s on display now through October 14th, 2016 outside the Special Collections & Archives reading room on Norlin Library’s third floor.

Although Shakespeare had no background in botany, his works abound in references to plants, flowers and the botanical world. From almond to yew and everything in between, he often relied on plant-lore to inform the symbolism or metaphor of his poetry.

In much the same way that today we both recognize the rose as a symbol of romance and can imagine its scent just from its description, Shakespeare used plant references to enhance the mood and sensory detail of his settings. In keeping with the essentially English character of his plays, the plants depicted in his works are likewise overwhelmingly those native to the English countryside where he grew up. Stop by Norlin Library and enjoy the pieces created by students from Denver Botanic Gardens’ School of Botanical Art and Illustration, each featuring a selection of the 181 different plants referenced in Shakespeare’s plays.

About the School of Botanical Art and Illustration
Botanical art and illustration is the centuries-old tradition of portraying plants for scientific purposes, recording vanishing species for historical record, and capturing the beauty and inspiration we experience in the flora of our world. The core curriculum of Denver Botanic Gardens’ School of Botanical Art & Illustration provides comprehensive instruction in artistic technique, accompanied by the botanical training necessary for scientific accuracy.

Event Image Exhibition: Animals In Antiquity (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

Animals in Antiquity
A collaborative exhibition between the CU Art Museum and the CU Museum of Natural History 
On view September 18, 2015 - September 2016 

The desire to assign symbolic meanings to animals that share our world links human cultures across time. Whether rendered figuratively or abstractly, depictions of animals remind us not only of themselves but also of the qualities and traits we assign to them. They can illustrate human traits—the coyote as trickster, the cat aloof—and teach children behaviors and ideals from fables. Humans have worshipped animals, hunted and consumed them for food, and altered the natural environments of animals, all in the name of humanity.

This exhibition is a celebration of animals in art and animals as artifacts. The objects are from across the Earth and span the last 4,000 years of human history. We invite you to ponder what these objects represented and how the makers used them in their daily lives.    

Curated by Erin Baxter, doctoral candidate in anthropology

This exhibition is generously supported by the Department of Classics, CU Boulder Student Arts and Cultural Enrichment fees, and CU Art Museum members.

Event Image Exhibit: Shakespeare's Bouquet (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

**Please check http://www.colorado.edu/libraries/contact-us/hours for Norlin Library hours**

CU-Boulder was named the Colorado host of First Folio! The Book that Gave Us Shakespeare, on tour from the Folger Shakespeare Library to all 50 states, Washington, D.C., and Puerto Rico. To complement the folio, University Libraries are hosting an exhibition of botanical art that reflects plants found in writings of the Bard. It’s on display now through October 14th, 2016 outside the Special Collections & Archives reading room on Norlin Library’s third floor.

Although Shakespeare had no background in botany, his works abound in references to plants, flowers and the botanical world. From almond to yew and everything in between, he often relied on plant-lore to inform the symbolism or metaphor of his poetry.

In much the same way that today we both recognize the rose as a symbol of romance and can imagine its scent just from its description, Shakespeare used plant references to enhance the mood and sensory detail of his settings. In keeping with the essentially English character of his plays, the plants depicted in his works are likewise overwhelmingly those native to the English countryside where he grew up. Stop by Norlin Library and enjoy the pieces created by students from Denver Botanic Gardens’ School of Botanical Art and Illustration, each featuring a selection of the 181 different plants referenced in Shakespeare’s plays.

About the School of Botanical Art and Illustration
Botanical art and illustration is the centuries-old tradition of portraying plants for scientific purposes, recording vanishing species for historical record, and capturing the beauty and inspiration we experience in the flora of our world. The core curriculum of Denver Botanic Gardens’ School of Botanical Art & Illustration provides comprehensive instruction in artistic technique, accompanied by the botanical training necessary for scientific accuracy.

In the creative fields, graduate teachers have to figure out how to provide feedback on and how to grade creative work. In all fields teachers assign projects that require different kinds of assessments. The presenters cover how to communicate the parameters of creative work to your students, how to provide feedback and how to grade students work despite the differences in their final products.

Making Room for Reality in STEM Recitations, Labs, and Classes
Janet Y. Tsai, Instructor and Postdoctoral Research Associate, Engineering Plus Program

STEM coursework traditionally demands focus on technical content over social and cultural contexts. While a STEM classroom can be a safe haven for students and educators alike who wish to escape from the (de)pressing realities of everyday life, artificially isolating our academic activities from the rest of the world proves to be a disservice to undergraduate preparation. This Fall Intensive workshop will: (1) encourage individual reflection on your personal experiences, assumptions, and embedded expectations of learning your STEM field; (2) provide concrete strategies for acknowledging and incorporating current events, social and cultural issues in your class; (3) motivate critical perspectives to question discipline-specific traditions of STEM learning; (4) connect to supporting research including concepts of social justice, depoliticization, and meritocracy.

Event Image Exhibition: Animals In Antiquity (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

Animals in Antiquity
A collaborative exhibition between the CU Art Museum and the CU Museum of Natural History 
On view September 18, 2015 - September 2016 

The desire to assign symbolic meanings to animals that share our world links human cultures across time. Whether rendered figuratively or abstractly, depictions of animals remind us not only of themselves but also of the qualities and traits we assign to them. They can illustrate human traits—the coyote as trickster, the cat aloof—and teach children behaviors and ideals from fables. Humans have worshipped animals, hunted and consumed them for food, and altered the natural environments of animals, all in the name of humanity.

This exhibition is a celebration of animals in art and animals as artifacts. The objects are from across the Earth and span the last 4,000 years of human history. We invite you to ponder what these objects represented and how the makers used them in their daily lives.    

Curated by Erin Baxter, doctoral candidate in anthropology

This exhibition is generously supported by the Department of Classics, CU Boulder Student Arts and Cultural Enrichment fees, and CU Art Museum members.

Event Image Exhibit: Shakespeare's Bouquet (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

**Please check http://www.colorado.edu/libraries/contact-us/hours for Norlin Library hours**

CU-Boulder was named the Colorado host of First Folio! The Book that Gave Us Shakespeare, on tour from the Folger Shakespeare Library to all 50 states, Washington, D.C., and Puerto Rico. To complement the folio, University Libraries are hosting an exhibition of botanical art that reflects plants found in writings of the Bard. It’s on display now through October 14th, 2016 outside the Special Collections & Archives reading room on Norlin Library’s third floor.

Although Shakespeare had no background in botany, his works abound in references to plants, flowers and the botanical world. From almond to yew and everything in between, he often relied on plant-lore to inform the symbolism or metaphor of his poetry.

In much the same way that today we both recognize the rose as a symbol of romance and can imagine its scent just from its description, Shakespeare used plant references to enhance the mood and sensory detail of his settings. In keeping with the essentially English character of his plays, the plants depicted in his works are likewise overwhelmingly those native to the English countryside where he grew up. Stop by Norlin Library and enjoy the pieces created by students from Denver Botanic Gardens’ School of Botanical Art and Illustration, each featuring a selection of the 181 different plants referenced in Shakespeare’s plays.

About the School of Botanical Art and Illustration
Botanical art and illustration is the centuries-old tradition of portraying plants for scientific purposes, recording vanishing species for historical record, and capturing the beauty and inspiration we experience in the flora of our world. The core curriculum of Denver Botanic Gardens’ School of Botanical Art & Illustration provides comprehensive instruction in artistic technique, accompanied by the botanical training necessary for scientific accuracy.

Black Holes: The Other Side of Infinity
7:00 PM - 8:00 PM

Among the most mysterious and exotic objects in the Universe, Black Holes tantalize everyone that learns about them. These dark beasts are one of a few phenomenon out in the cosmos where the known laws of physics and general relativity break down. "Black Holes: The Other Side of Infinity" explores the power and grace of these cosmic beasts. CU's own Dr. Andrew Hamilton was the science advisor for the program.
"Black Holes: The Other Side of Infinity is for me the culmination of a dream many years in the making," said Hamilton. "The show marries science and art in a new way that compromises neither. In particular, the show breaks new ground in visualizing accurately what Einstein's equations predict about what really happens inside black holes. What actually happens looks nothing like, but is at least as fantastic as, any Hollywood rendering."
The program will be followed by a live talk by Dr. Andrew Hamilton, including a discussion of the recent discovery of gravitational waves.

Animals in Antiquity
A collaborative exhibition between the CU Art Museum and the CU Museum of Natural History 
On view September 18, 2015 - September 2016 

The desire to assign symbolic meanings to animals that share our world links human cultures across time. Whether rendered figuratively or abstractly, depictions of animals remind us not only of themselves but also of the qualities and traits we assign to them. They can illustrate human traits—the coyote as trickster, the cat aloof—and teach children behaviors and ideals from fables. Humans have worshipped animals, hunted and consumed them for food, and altered the natural environments of animals, all in the name of humanity.

This exhibition is a celebration of animals in art and animals as artifacts. The objects are from across the Earth and span the last 4,000 years of human history. We invite you to ponder what these objects represented and how the makers used them in their daily lives.    

Curated by Erin Baxter, doctoral candidate in anthropology

This exhibition is generously supported by the Department of Classics, CU Boulder Student Arts and Cultural Enrichment fees, and CU Art Museum members.

**Please check http://www.colorado.edu/libraries/contact-us/hours for Norlin Library hours**

CU-Boulder was named the Colorado host of First Folio! The Book that Gave Us Shakespeare, on tour from the Folger Shakespeare Library to all 50 states, Washington, D.C., and Puerto Rico. To complement the folio, University Libraries are hosting an exhibition of botanical art that reflects plants found in writings of the Bard. It’s on display now through October 14th, 2016 outside the Special Collections & Archives reading room on Norlin Library’s third floor.

Although Shakespeare had no background in botany, his works abound in references to plants, flowers and the botanical world. From almond to yew and everything in between, he often relied on plant-lore to inform the symbolism or metaphor of his poetry.

In much the same way that today we both recognize the rose as a symbol of romance and can imagine its scent just from its description, Shakespeare used plant references to enhance the mood and sensory detail of his settings. In keeping with the essentially English character of his plays, the plants depicted in his works are likewise overwhelmingly those native to the English countryside where he grew up. Stop by Norlin Library and enjoy the pieces created by students from Denver Botanic Gardens’ School of Botanical Art and Illustration, each featuring a selection of the 181 different plants referenced in Shakespeare’s plays.

About the School of Botanical Art and Illustration
Botanical art and illustration is the centuries-old tradition of portraying plants for scientific purposes, recording vanishing species for historical record, and capturing the beauty and inspiration we experience in the flora of our world. The core curriculum of Denver Botanic Gardens’ School of Botanical Art & Illustration provides comprehensive instruction in artistic technique, accompanied by the botanical training necessary for scientific accuracy.

Event Image Exhibition: Animals In Antiquity (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

Animals in Antiquity
A collaborative exhibition between the CU Art Museum and the CU Museum of Natural History 
On view September 18, 2015 - September 2016 

The desire to assign symbolic meanings to animals that share our world links human cultures across time. Whether rendered figuratively or abstractly, depictions of animals remind us not only of themselves but also of the qualities and traits we assign to them. They can illustrate human traits—the coyote as trickster, the cat aloof—and teach children behaviors and ideals from fables. Humans have worshipped animals, hunted and consumed them for food, and altered the natural environments of animals, all in the name of humanity.

This exhibition is a celebration of animals in art and animals as artifacts. The objects are from across the Earth and span the last 4,000 years of human history. We invite you to ponder what these objects represented and how the makers used them in their daily lives.    

Curated by Erin Baxter, doctoral candidate in anthropology

This exhibition is generously supported by the Department of Classics, CU Boulder Student Arts and Cultural Enrichment fees, and CU Art Museum members.

**Please check http://www.colorado.edu/libraries/contact-us/hours for Norlin Library hours**

CU-Boulder was named the Colorado host of First Folio! The Book that Gave Us Shakespeare, on tour from the Folger Shakespeare Library to all 50 states, Washington, D.C., and Puerto Rico. To complement the folio, University Libraries are hosting an exhibition of botanical art that reflects plants found in writings of the Bard. It’s on display now through October 14th, 2016 outside the Special Collections & Archives reading room on Norlin Library’s third floor.

Although Shakespeare had no background in botany, his works abound in references to plants, flowers and the botanical world. From almond to yew and everything in between, he often relied on plant-lore to inform the symbolism or metaphor of his poetry.

In much the same way that today we both recognize the rose as a symbol of romance and can imagine its scent just from its description, Shakespeare used plant references to enhance the mood and sensory detail of his settings. In keeping with the essentially English character of his plays, the plants depicted in his works are likewise overwhelmingly those native to the English countryside where he grew up. Stop by Norlin Library and enjoy the pieces created by students from Denver Botanic Gardens’ School of Botanical Art and Illustration, each featuring a selection of the 181 different plants referenced in Shakespeare’s plays.

About the School of Botanical Art and Illustration
Botanical art and illustration is the centuries-old tradition of portraying plants for scientific purposes, recording vanishing species for historical record, and capturing the beauty and inspiration we experience in the flora of our world. The core curriculum of Denver Botanic Gardens’ School of Botanical Art & Illustration provides comprehensive instruction in artistic technique, accompanied by the botanical training necessary for scientific accuracy.

Physics Colloquium, "NASA’s Juno Mission to Jupiter: What’s Inside the Giant Planet?”
4:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Presented by: Fran Bagenal, University of Colorado

Abstract: Jupiter is a planet of superlatives: the most massive planet in the solar system, rotates the fastest, has the strongest magnetic field, and has the most extensive satellite system of any planet. NASA’s Juno mission was launched in August 2011 and went into orbit over Jupiter’s poles on July 4th this summer. Juno’s principal goal is to understand the origin and evolution of Jupiter. Underneath its dense cloud cover, Jupiter safeguards secrets to the fundamental processes and conditions that governed our solar system during its formation. As our primary example of a giant planet, Jupiter can also provide critical knowledge for understanding the planetary systems being discovered around other stars. With its suite of science instruments, Juno will investigate the existence of a solid planetary core, map Jupiter's intense magnetic field, measure the amount of water and ammonia in the deep atmosphere, and observe the planet's auroras. Juno will let us take a giant step forward in our understanding of how giant planets form and the role these titans played in putting together the rest of the solar system. In Greek and Roman mythology, Jupiter drew a veil of clouds around himself to hide his mischief. It was Jupiter’s wife, the goddess Juno, who was able to peer through the clouds and reveal Jupiter’s true nature. Juno is also the first spacecraft to fly over Jupiter’s aurora and will measure both the energetic particles raining down on the planet and the bright “northern & southern lights” they excite.

Event Image Exhibition: Animals In Antiquity (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

Animals in Antiquity
A collaborative exhibition between the CU Art Museum and the CU Museum of Natural History 
On view September 18, 2015 - September 2016 

The desire to assign symbolic meanings to animals that share our world links human cultures across time. Whether rendered figuratively or abstractly, depictions of animals remind us not only of themselves but also of the qualities and traits we assign to them. They can illustrate human traits—the coyote as trickster, the cat aloof—and teach children behaviors and ideals from fables. Humans have worshipped animals, hunted and consumed them for food, and altered the natural environments of animals, all in the name of humanity.

This exhibition is a celebration of animals in art and animals as artifacts. The objects are from across the Earth and span the last 4,000 years of human history. We invite you to ponder what these objects represented and how the makers used them in their daily lives.    

Curated by Erin Baxter, doctoral candidate in anthropology

This exhibition is generously supported by the Department of Classics, CU Boulder Student Arts and Cultural Enrichment fees, and CU Art Museum members.

All Day

**Please check http://www.colorado.edu/libraries/contact-us/hours for Norlin Library hours**

CU-Boulder was named the Colorado host of First Folio! The Book that Gave Us Shakespeare, on tour from the Folger Shakespeare Library to all 50 states, Washington, D.C., and Puerto Rico. To complement the folio, University Libraries are hosting an exhibition of botanical art that reflects plants found in writings of the Bard. It’s on display now through October 14th, 2016 outside the Special Collections & Archives reading room on Norlin Library’s third floor.

Although Shakespeare had no background in botany, his works abound in references to plants, flowers and the botanical world. From almond to yew and everything in between, he often relied on plant-lore to inform the symbolism or metaphor of his poetry.

In much the same way that today we both recognize the rose as a symbol of romance and can imagine its scent just from its description, Shakespeare used plant references to enhance the mood and sensory detail of his settings. In keeping with the essentially English character of his plays, the plants depicted in his works are likewise overwhelmingly those native to the English countryside where he grew up. Stop by Norlin Library and enjoy the pieces created by students from Denver Botanic Gardens’ School of Botanical Art and Illustration, each featuring a selection of the 181 different plants referenced in Shakespeare’s plays.

About the School of Botanical Art and Illustration
Botanical art and illustration is the centuries-old tradition of portraying plants for scientific purposes, recording vanishing species for historical record, and capturing the beauty and inspiration we experience in the flora of our world. The core curriculum of Denver Botanic Gardens’ School of Botanical Art & Illustration provides comprehensive instruction in artistic technique, accompanied by the botanical training necessary for scientific accuracy.

A Graph Distance for the Structural Analysis of Dynamic Networks

  To quantify the evolution of time-varying networks, and detect abnormal behavior, one needs a notion of temporal difference that captures significant organizational changes between two successive instants.

  We propose a family of distances to quantify structural changes occurring on a graph at different scales.  We design a randomized algorithm, which scales nearly linearly in the number of edges, to compute an approximation to this novel graph distance.

  We demonstrate that temporal changes in this graph distance can be used to detect configurational changes that are directly related to the hidden variables governing the evolution of dynamic networks.

  This is work in collaboration with Dr. Nathan Monnig.

Event Image Exhibition: Animals In Antiquity (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

Animals in Antiquity
A collaborative exhibition between the CU Art Museum and the CU Museum of Natural History 
On view September 18, 2015 - September 2016 

The desire to assign symbolic meanings to animals that share our world links human cultures across time. Whether rendered figuratively or abstractly, depictions of animals remind us not only of themselves but also of the qualities and traits we assign to them. They can illustrate human traits—the coyote as trickster, the cat aloof—and teach children behaviors and ideals from fables. Humans have worshipped animals, hunted and consumed them for food, and altered the natural environments of animals, all in the name of humanity.

This exhibition is a celebration of animals in art and animals as artifacts. The objects are from across the Earth and span the last 4,000 years of human history. We invite you to ponder what these objects represented and how the makers used them in their daily lives.    

Curated by Erin Baxter, doctoral candidate in anthropology

This exhibition is generously supported by the Department of Classics, CU Boulder Student Arts and Cultural Enrichment fees, and CU Art Museum members.

**Please check http://www.colorado.edu/libraries/contact-us/hours for Norlin Library hours**

CU-Boulder was named the Colorado host of First Folio! The Book that Gave Us Shakespeare, on tour from the Folger Shakespeare Library to all 50 states, Washington, D.C., and Puerto Rico. To complement the folio, University Libraries are hosting an exhibition of botanical art that reflects plants found in writings of the Bard. It’s on display now through October 14th, 2016 outside the Special Collections & Archives reading room on Norlin Library’s third floor.

Although Shakespeare had no background in botany, his works abound in references to plants, flowers and the botanical world. From almond to yew and everything in between, he often relied on plant-lore to inform the symbolism or metaphor of his poetry.

In much the same way that today we both recognize the rose as a symbol of romance and can imagine its scent just from its description, Shakespeare used plant references to enhance the mood and sensory detail of his settings. In keeping with the essentially English character of his plays, the plants depicted in his works are likewise overwhelmingly those native to the English countryside where he grew up. Stop by Norlin Library and enjoy the pieces created by students from Denver Botanic Gardens’ School of Botanical Art and Illustration, each featuring a selection of the 181 different plants referenced in Shakespeare’s plays.

About the School of Botanical Art and Illustration
Botanical art and illustration is the centuries-old tradition of portraying plants for scientific purposes, recording vanishing species for historical record, and capturing the beauty and inspiration we experience in the flora of our world. The core curriculum of Denver Botanic Gardens’ School of Botanical Art & Illustration provides comprehensive instruction in artistic technique, accompanied by the botanical training necessary for scientific accuracy.

Event Image Exhibition: Animals In Antiquity (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

Animals in Antiquity
A collaborative exhibition between the CU Art Museum and the CU Museum of Natural History 
On view September 18, 2015 - September 2016 

The desire to assign symbolic meanings to animals that share our world links human cultures across time. Whether rendered figuratively or abstractly, depictions of animals remind us not only of themselves but also of the qualities and traits we assign to them. They can illustrate human traits—the coyote as trickster, the cat aloof—and teach children behaviors and ideals from fables. Humans have worshipped animals, hunted and consumed them for food, and altered the natural environments of animals, all in the name of humanity.

This exhibition is a celebration of animals in art and animals as artifacts. The objects are from across the Earth and span the last 4,000 years of human history. We invite you to ponder what these objects represented and how the makers used them in their daily lives.    

Curated by Erin Baxter, doctoral candidate in anthropology

This exhibition is generously supported by the Department of Classics, CU Boulder Student Arts and Cultural Enrichment fees, and CU Art Museum members.

**Please check http://www.colorado.edu/libraries/contact-us/hours for Norlin Library hours**

CU-Boulder was named the Colorado host of First Folio! The Book that Gave Us Shakespeare, on tour from the Folger Shakespeare Library to all 50 states, Washington, D.C., and Puerto Rico. To complement the folio, University Libraries are hosting an exhibition of botanical art that reflects plants found in writings of the Bard. It’s on display now through October 14th, 2016 outside the Special Collections & Archives reading room on Norlin Library’s third floor.

Although Shakespeare had no background in botany, his works abound in references to plants, flowers and the botanical world. From almond to yew and everything in between, he often relied on plant-lore to inform the symbolism or metaphor of his poetry.

In much the same way that today we both recognize the rose as a symbol of romance and can imagine its scent just from its description, Shakespeare used plant references to enhance the mood and sensory detail of his settings. In keeping with the essentially English character of his plays, the plants depicted in his works are likewise overwhelmingly those native to the English countryside where he grew up. Stop by Norlin Library and enjoy the pieces created by students from Denver Botanic Gardens’ School of Botanical Art and Illustration, each featuring a selection of the 181 different plants referenced in Shakespeare’s plays.

About the School of Botanical Art and Illustration
Botanical art and illustration is the centuries-old tradition of portraying plants for scientific purposes, recording vanishing species for historical record, and capturing the beauty and inspiration we experience in the flora of our world. The core curriculum of Denver Botanic Gardens’ School of Botanical Art & Illustration provides comprehensive instruction in artistic technique, accompanied by the botanical training necessary for scientific accuracy.

Event Image ECEE Colloquium: A Game Changer for the Solar Industry?
11:00 AM - 12:00 PM

Will Perovskite Semiconductors be a Game Changer for the Solar Industry?

WHO: Michael McGehee of the Precourt Institute for Energy
WHEN: 11 a.m. Tuesday, Aug. 30
WHERE: ECEE 1B32

ABSTRACT: In the last five years the power conversion efficiency of solar cells made with perovskite semiconductors has soared from less than 7% to over 22%. Only four other families of semiconductors have ever reached this efficiency. Perovskites are very attractive compared to those families because they can be deposited from solution at low cost and they have the right bandgaps to be used in tandem solar cells. In tandems one semiconductor harvests the photons in the solar spectrum that have higher energy and generates a big voltage while another semiconductor harvests the photons with lower energy.  Using this strategy makes it possible to improve the efficiency by approximately 50%. In this seminar I will discuss: 

- The properties that make perovskite semiconductors so great for solar cells
- Progress towards demonstrating high-efficiency tandems with perovskites stacked on top of conventional silicon solar cells
- The challenge of making perovskite solar cells stable and three big recent advances that have improved the stability by more than 10,000x
- Whether or not to the toxicity of lead, which is used in the best perovskite semiconductors,  is a problem and what could be done to replace the lead
- The status of scaling up and commercializing this exciting technology
- How the levelized cost of electricity from solar panels that incorporate perovskites is likely to compare to that of conventional solar cell technology

WHEN: 3:30 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 30
WHERE: Newton Lab (ECCR 257)

Accelerating heuristics for nonconvex optimization with active subspaces
 
ABSTRACT: Scientists and engineers use computer simulations to study relationships between a physical model's input parameters and its outputs. 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 studies in these instances, the engineer may attempt to reduce the dimension of the model's input parameter space. Active subspaces are part of an emerging set of dimension reduction tools that identify important directions in the parameter space. Constantine will describe methods for discovering a model's active subspace and propose strategies for exploiting the reduced dimension to enable otherwise infeasible parameter studies. For more information, see activesubspaces.org
 
In particular, he will discuss how the low-dimensional structure revealed by an active subspace may be exploited to accelerate computational heuristics for optimizing a nonlinear, nonconvex function of several variables. 
 
BIO: Paul G. Constantine is the Ben L. Fryrear Assistant Professor of Applied Mathematics and Statistics at Colorado School of Mines. He received his Ph.D. from Stanford'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.

CU-Boulder was named the Colorado host of First Folio! The Book that Gave Us Shakespeare, on tour from the Folger Shakespeare Library to all 50 states, Washington, D.C., and Puerto Rico. To complement the folio, University Libraries are hosting an exhibition of botanical art that reflects plants found in writings of the Bard. It’s on display now through October 14th, 2016 outside the Special Collections & Archives reading room on Norlin Library’s third floor.

Although Shakespeare had no background in botany, his works abound in references to plants, flowers and the botanical world. From almond to yew and everything in between, he often relied on plant-lore to inform the symbolism or metaphor of his poetry.

In much the same way that today we both recognize the rose as a symbol of romance and can imagine its scent just from its description, Shakespeare used plant references to enhance the mood and sensory detail of his settings. In keeping with the essentially English character of his plays, the plants depicted in his works are likewise overwhelmingly those native to the English countryside where he grew up. Stop by Norlin Library and enjoy the pieces created by students from Denver Botanic Gardens’ School of Botanical Art and Illustration, each featuring a selection of the 181 different plants referenced in Shakespeare’s plays.

About the School of Botanical Art and Illustration
Botanical art and illustration is the centuries-old tradition of portraying plants for scientific purposes, recording vanishing species for historical record, and capturing the beauty and inspiration we experience in the flora of our world. The core curriculum of Denver Botanic Gardens’ School of Botanical Art & Illustration provides comprehensive instruction in artistic technique, accompanied by the botanical training necessary for scientific accuracy.

Physics Colloquium, "Cosmic Dust Research at the Colorado Dust Accelerator"
4:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Presented by: Tobin Munsat, University of Colorado Boulder

Abstract: Cosmic dust grains play a central role in astrophysics and planetary science; the interaction of dust grains with planetary surfaces and atmospheres can drive weathering processes, surface chemistry (for airless bodies), and even atmospheric chemistry on Earth. Dust-detecting instruments can provide insight into the environment where the particles were formed, whether that is the interstellar medium, comets, asteroids, or even ejected from the surfaces of planets and moons. From a basic physics point of view, hypervelocity impact experiments can access extremely high energy density levels. To address many facets of cosmic dust research in the lab, we have recently developed a dust accelerator on the east campus of CU. This is a 3 MV electrostatic linear accelerator which launches particles in the size range of 0.1 to a few micrometers and velocities up to 100 km/s onto a variety of targets. This talk will describe the basic details of the accelerator and provide an overview of several lines of research being carried out by our group. Specifically, I will discuss hypervelocity impact cratering experiments in thin films, impact experiments into cryogenic (ice) targets, making "shooting stars" in the lab, and the local development of dust detector instruments that have flown to the moon and will soon fly to Jupiter's moon Europa.

Coffee, tea and cookies will be available in DUAN G1B31 beginning at 3:45 p.m.

Event Image Exhibition: Animals In Antiquity (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

Animals in Antiquity
A collaborative exhibition between the CU Art Museum and the CU Museum of Natural History 
On view September 18, 2015 - September 2016 

The desire to assign symbolic meanings to animals that share our world links human cultures across time. Whether rendered figuratively or abstractly, depictions of animals remind us not only of themselves but also of the qualities and traits we assign to them. They can illustrate human traits—the coyote as trickster, the cat aloof—and teach children behaviors and ideals from fables. Humans have worshipped animals, hunted and consumed them for food, and altered the natural environments of animals, all in the name of humanity.

This exhibition is a celebration of animals in art and animals as artifacts. The objects are from across the Earth and span the last 4,000 years of human history. We invite you to ponder what these objects represented and how the makers used them in their daily lives.    

Curated by Erin Baxter, doctoral candidate in anthropology

This exhibition is generously supported by the Department of Classics, CU Boulder Student Arts and Cultural Enrichment fees, and CU Art Museum members.

Complex/Dynamical Systems Seminar - Daniel J Scheeres
2:00 PM - 3:00 PM

Daniel J Scheeres, Department of Aerospace Engineering Sciences, University of Colorado Boulder
New relative equilibria and their implications in the Full 3-Body Problem
In the gravitational 3-body problem, if the bodies are assumed to be rigid, spherical and of finite density, there are 28 distinct relative equilibria which exist, including the classical five relative equilibria for the point-mass three-body problem. The bifurcation pathways of these relative equilibria can be mapped out as the angular momentum of the system is increased, and we find that none of these relative equilibria exist or are stable over all values of angular momentum. The transition to finite density greatly increases the number of relative equilibria in the three-body problem and ensures that minimum energy configurations exist for all values of angular momentum. Analysis of these new relative equilibria lead to interesting dynamical phenomenon and limits not present in the classical point-mass 3-body problem.

**Please check http://www.colorado.edu/libraries/contact-us/hours for Norlin Library hours**

CU-Boulder was named the Colorado host of First Folio! The Book that Gave Us Shakespeare, on tour from the Folger Shakespeare Library to all 50 states, Washington, D.C., and Puerto Rico. To complement the folio, University Libraries are hosting an exhibition of botanical art that reflects plants found in writings of the Bard. It’s on display now through October 14th, 2016 outside the Special Collections & Archives reading room on Norlin Library’s third floor.

Although Shakespeare had no background in botany, his works abound in references to plants, flowers and the botanical world. From almond to yew and everything in between, he often relied on plant-lore to inform the symbolism or metaphor of his poetry.

In much the same way that today we both recognize the rose as a symbol of romance and can imagine its scent just from its description, Shakespeare used plant references to enhance the mood and sensory detail of his settings. In keeping with the essentially English character of his plays, the plants depicted in his works are likewise overwhelmingly those native to the English countryside where he grew up. Stop by Norlin Library and enjoy the pieces created by students from Denver Botanic Gardens’ School of Botanical Art and Illustration, each featuring a selection of the 181 different plants referenced in Shakespeare’s plays.

About the School of Botanical Art and Illustration
Botanical art and illustration is the centuries-old tradition of portraying plants for scientific purposes, recording vanishing species for historical record, and capturing the beauty and inspiration we experience in the flora of our world. The core curriculum of Denver Botanic Gardens’ School of Botanical Art & Illustration provides comprehensive instruction in artistic technique, accompanied by the botanical training necessary for scientific accuracy.

What is Big Data and Why Should I Care? Lessons from Human Genomics

Over the past decade, the rapid advance of technology has resulted in an unprecedented amount of molecular and genetic data. For biomedical researchers, these data present many new opportunities to gain insights into the biological factors underlying disease processes. This large scale data also presents numerous challenges for researchers ranging from processing to analysis to interpretation. As we navigate through the “big data” era of biomedical research, it is critical that we are able to convert the rich high dimensional data into valuable information as it relates to disease etiology and disease risk. In this talk, we will discuss some of the challenges and opportunities of “big data” and strategies that researchers are using to harness the data to yield useful information for understanding the disease process.

Numerical methods for accurately computing forces due to drag-coupled particles

In various applications in biology and physics, fluid flows containing small particles appear. In order to simulate such fluids, drag forces between the fluid and particles must be included in the model. However, without
careful treatment, these forces are not accurately computed in standard numerical algorithms for solving the equations of fluid motion. In this talk, two efficient algorithms for obtaining approximations to these forces when large numbers of particles are present will be discussed. One method is based on the
Particle-Particle/Particle-Mesh (PPPM) method, and the other upon the Method of Local Corrections (MLC). Error properties of these methods as indicated from analytical derivation and numerical simulation will be
presented. Initial results show that the MLC-based algorithm, when combined with a special class of finite difference stencils, obtains more rapid convergence then the PPPM algorithm.
