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
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.)

too many talents
I shift my focus and say a few sweet things to J. J. Brown, Jiangsheng You, Xiaofeng Zhu
the talent show is on
a glance at Beijing, Hebei, and Anhui could be profound
we find lots of beauty and handsome well-known
old meets young
Ding XiaoJun sings sweetly,
Mei Baojiu acts womanly
Dan Zen is good at comedy
Niu Li is charming,
Pan Yongcao and Jin Yao are dancing,
Qin Yi, Tian Hua, and Song Fei are excellent exercising
we feel great
about Julie Cohen, Jennifer Flecher, and Kimberly Henry,
we do promote Zhou Tao, Dong Qing, and Zhao Wei
think of Ma Shucao, Xu Peidong, Jiang Kemei, Jiang Hun,
recall the show of 2016, 2015 from Chun Ni, Luo Jie, Qu Dan
a music rises for Tao Yulin, Zhang Ye, Ning Jing, Zhu Jun,
Huang Hong regrets she did not grow taller,
Huo Xuanhe, Shi Weijian, Hu Wei, Yin Liyuan simply laughing, why not Li Shengsu, Yu Kuizhi, and Chen Sisi?
just kidding, we try to pay attention to Wang Erni,
including Wu Huan, Zhu Yibing, Juan Zi, Zhao Pu, and Guo Da
and keep in mind, Sun Yue, Hong Wei, Gong Shuang all thrive
their boots stomp on the floor and make crunchy sound
Hello, Yang Lan, Cao Kefan, and Bai Yansheng,
Goodbye Tang Yongli, Chen Kaige, Wang Chuanyue, and Wang Li
keep it up, David Boren, Frank Wang, Woody Guthrie, Alan Moore
“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.
The Oklahoma State University Foundation, the private fundraising organization for OSU, exists to unite donor and university passions and priorities to achieve excellence. The Foundation manages donor contributions so the university can provide the most advanced educational opportunities to students. From scholarships to community programs to important research, OSU donors generously support the spirit and tradition of Oklahoma State University’s land-grant mission. OSU supporters fuel our historic growth and unprecedented excitement. We continue to witness an ongoing transformation at Oklahoma State, and all gifts help ensure we continue this tradition of excellence.
Oklahoma State University is a modern land-grant university that prepares students for success. OSU has more than 36,000 students across its five-campus system and more than 25,000 on its combined Stillwater and Tulsa campuses, with students from all 50 states and around 120 nations. Established in 1890, Oklahoma State has graduated more than 260,000 students who have been serving Oklahoma and the world for 125 years.
hundreds of miles apart
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
God bless Lydia, Valeria, Sarah, Lisa, Bob, John, and Roxanne,
Any care givers derve to benefit gtom early childhood education excellence

I always try to be happy. That has been my number one goal since I was in college. When things really bug me, I try so hard to think of the funny side of what is happening. Hopeing that they will stop bugging me. Which leads to some pretty crazy thoughts? Make of it what you will. This is me. I hope you enjoy.

About sexual assault, for victims of sexual assault, by survivors of sexual assault.
Most of us feel it, some don't. Some of us say it, some don't. Some may agree, some won't. Be as it may, the facts still remain.
A man should hear a little music, read a little poetry, and see a fine picture every day of his life, in order that worldly cares may not obliterate the sense of the beautiful which God has implanted in the human soul. (Johann Wolfgang von Goethe)
