Invited Speakers:

Fluids are ubiquitous in nature, science and engineering. Observations of a range of fluid and fluid-like behavior can be found throughout atmospheric and ocean science, astrophysics, chemistry, biology and ecology. Many of these phenomena are modeled by the partial differential equations of fluid mechanics. These are some of the most difficult partial differential equations to analyze, as they are nonlinear and usually nonlocal.

There will be approximately 15 invited speakers and ample time will be alloted for discussions. A poster session will be a part of the workshop. Please use the poster registration form to submit your title and abstract.

We may be able to partially cover travel and local expenses for some junior participants, mainly postdoctoral fellows and advanced graduate students. Applications for financial support should be submitted by Friday April 1, 2016. Early applications will be given a priority.

The event is a part of the NSF Focused Research Group (FRG) project involving the groups of Peter Constantin (Princeton), Tom Hou (Caltech), Sasha Kiselev (Rice), Lenya Ryzhik (Stanford), and Vladimir Sverak (Minnesota).


A Villanelle for Mother’s Day

 

A villanelle for Mother’s Day
Should take me just about an hour:
Writing it is child’s play.

Because I know just what to say,
And rhyming’s quite within my power,
To write it should be child’s play.

Yet plain speech is not my way:
I look for leaves to shade my flower,
This villanelle for Mother’s Day.

I do not wish to sound too fey,
Obscure, mystic, gushy, sour–
Arggh! Writing’s never child’s play!

Yes, childish! To my dismay,
Far beyond the allotted hour,
This villanelle for Mother’s Day

Dawdles on. Let me just say
It plain: I love you, and so end our
Villanelle for Mother’s Day.
(Well … writing it
was child’s play.)

STILLWATER, Okla., March 30, 2016 /PRNewswire/ — Oklahoma State University’s planned performing arts center received a major boost today with a $25 million gift from alumni Ross and Billie McKnight to establish an endowment to support programming.

“This visionary gift from the McKnights will ensure our new performing arts center truly maximizes the opportunities for cultural enrichment that the magnificent modern facility will afford,” said Oklahoma State University President Burns Hargis. “As a result of the generosity of the McKnights, we will be available to present celebrated national and international performing arts productions and artists that will enhance the cultural experience on campus, in the Stillwater community and across the region.”

The 93,000-square-foot performing arts center will be named The McKnight Center for the Performing Arts at Oklahoma State University. The center will stand prominently along the southwest corner of University Avenue and Hester Street within walking distance of the student union, the Atherton Hotel and the ConocoPhillips OSU Alumni Center.

The McKnight Center for the Performing Arts will be one of Oklahoma’s premier cultural institutions, creating an environment for artistic expression that allows Oklahoma State and the Stillwater community to express — and be recognized for — their passion for the arts on a global stage.

“Billie and I made this commitment to fulfill the vision of the performing arts center to expand the number and type of cultural opportunities available at Oklahoma State through vibrant performances and educational experiences,” said Ross McKnight. “We see our gift enabling students at Oklahoma State to achieve their fullest potential through interaction with some of the finest artists in the world. We believe these experiences will inspire students to express their own talents through music and performance.”

The endowment will allow Oklahoma State to explore unique opportunities to work with several of the country’s top symphonies, institutions, artists and traveling musical groups to bring once-in-a-lifetime entertainment and learning opportunities to Stillwater.

The McKnights’ generosity complements a number of donations to the performing arts center including a $15 million maintenance and operations gift from philanthropists and OSU alumni Frank and Carol Morsani.

“The McKnights and others who have already committed gifts to The McKnight Center for the Performing Arts represent a significant milestone under the leadership of President Burns Hargis toward achieving the goal of making the arts a vital part of the Oklahoma State experience,” commented Joe B. Hall, chairman of the OSU/A&M Board of Regents.

The McKnight Center for the Performing Arts will feature state-of-the-art technology designed to enhance the performance and audience experience. It will include an acoustically perfected 1,100­-seat performance hall, 222­-seat recital hall and an outdoor amphitheater with a large viewing screen for broadcasting performances in the hall as well as other performances from anywhere else in the world.

The McKnight Center for the Performing Arts will also include a new home for the Department of Music and its master class curriculum. Teaching studios for one-on-one lessons and ensemble rooms for small or large groups will be located in the center. These spaces will be engineered with the latest acoustics and technology for instruction, practice and performance.

The McKnight Center for the Performing Arts at Oklahoma State University is expected to open in 2019.

how to handle the relation is an art

when a wise grand daughter speaks

the wisdom and the courage in her make Himalaya mountain shake

.

when an infant baby cries for human touches

the sound waves echo in between are as powerful as Olympic torch

despite the fact that two persons never meet

the tie and comprehension cross generations are great
