Lecture/Seminar Lansdowne Lecture - Ringel's Decomposition Problem and Graph Labellings 2017-03-29 19:00:00
Description

Speaker: Professor Alexander Rosa (Emeritus Professor, Department of Mathematics and Statistics, McMaster University)

Abstract:

During the 1963 international graph theory conference in Smolenice, Czechoslovakia, Gerhard Ringel formulated the following conjecture:

The complete graph with vertices can be decomposed into subgraphs, each isomorphic to a given tree with edges.

Shortly thereafter, several kinds of graph labellings were introduced with the aim of attacking Ringel’s conjecture. Among these, the graceful labelling (originally called  labelling) became the most prominent.

I will attempt to present an overview of the up-to-date approaches to Ringel’s conjecture, and also to the well-known conjecture that every tree has a graceful labelling.

Exhibit The Mystery of Grafton Tyler Brown: Race, Art, and Landscape in 19th Century British Columbia 2017-03-29 10:00
Description

We know Grafton Tyler Brown (1841-1918) was one of the first professional landscape artists to work in the Pacific Northwest. His few regional paintings that survive offer vivid windows into the world of 1880s Victoria and British Columbia. Yet, how did this African American artist succeed at a time when racial prejudice prevented most Blacks from entering any skilled profession? Guest curated by Dr. John Lutz (History, UVic) with Emerald Johnstone Bedell and Caroline Riedel. Created in partnership with UVIC Legacy Art Galleries and UVIC History Department. With conservation support from the Royal BC Museum.

Lecture/Seminar Treasures and Tea: The Word in Miniature 2017-03-29 12:30:00
Description

In the nineteenth century, a curious genre of literature experienced newfound popularity. Thumb Bibles-- miniature, abridged versions of the Bible, often embellished with illustrations and intended for children-- provide valuable insight into material culture and religious instruction during the Victorian era. In this lecture, Alyssa Currie will offer a lively introduction to the genre and present a remarkable example from UVic Special Collections: The Little Picture Testament

​Alyssa Currie is a Master’s student in the English Department at the University of Victoria. Her MA research uses primary sources to locate tigers in late 18th century London and thus reconsider William Blake’s “The Tyger.” Ms. Currie’s academic interests have led her to pursue research in London and complete a summer co-op at Library and Archive Canada. Her article "The Victorian Thumb Bible as Material Object: Charles Tilt’s The Little Picture Testament (1839)" recently appeared in Cahiers victoriens et édouardiens.​

Treasures and Tea in Special Collections and the University Archives brings together researchers, instructors, students, and members of the community to explore and share materials from the collections. The informal show-and-tell presentations are followed by discussion and refreshments.

Film LAND OF MINE 2017-03-29 19:00:00
Description

LAND OF MINE

Director: Martin Zandvliet; Denmark/Germany, 2016, 101 min; Danish/German with subtitles; 14A

ACADEMY AWARD NOMINEE: BEST FOREIGN FILM!

It might seem hard to find a World War II story that hasn’t been told, but Danish director Martin Zandvliet has come up with a fresh and compelling approach. Based on a true but not well-known part of history, the film works as a moving antiwar essay and as a gripping thriller. After the official end of the war in May 1945, German POWs in Denmark were put to work on a deadly task — defusing more than 2 million German land mines along the country’s west coast. Danish Sergeant Rasmussen (Roland Moller) is assigned to oversee the German prisoners. Most of them are teenage boys conscripted by Hitler in the last days of the war, and they are hopelessly ill equipped to carry out their dangerous job. –Hollywood Reporter

“A CLASSIC WIDE-SCREEN WORLD WAR II EPIC BUT WITH A NUMBER OF UNSETTLING TWISTS.” –Los Angeles Times

“YOU’LL FIND YOURSELF RIVETED TO THE PROCEEDINGS.” –Hitfix

Lecture/Seminar COORDINATED GLOBAL AND REGIONAL CLIMATE MODELLING Presenter: 2017-03-29 15:00:00
Description

A new approach of coordinated global and regional climate modelling is presented. It is applied to the Canadian Centre for Climate Modelling and Analysis regional climate model, CanRCM4, and its parent global climate model CanESM2.  CanRCM4 was developed specifically to downscale climate predictions and climate projections made by its parent global model.  The close association of a regional climate model, RCM, with a parent global model, GCM, offers novel avenues of model development and application, which are not typically available to independent regional climate modelling centres.  For example, when CanRCM4 is driven by its parent model, driving information for all of its prognostic variables is available (including aerosols and chemical species), significantly improving the quality of their simulation.  Additionally, CanRCM4 can be driven by its parent model for all downscaling applications by employing a spectral nudging procedure in CanESM2 designed to constrain its evolution to follow any large-scale driving data. Finally, coordinating regional and global modelling efforts helps to highlight the importance of assessing RCM ``value added'' relative to their driving global models.  As a first step in this direction, a framework for identifying ``appreciable differences'' in RCM vs. GCM climate change results is proposed and applied to CanRCM4 and CanESM2.
 
Bio: Dr. John Scinocca is the Head of Model Development at the Canadian Centre for Climate Modelling and Analysis, Environment and Climate Change Canada. His research interests include global and regional climate modelling, climate dynamics, middle-atmosphere dynamics, internal gravity wave dynamics, stratified shear instability and geophysical fluid dynamics.
