Applied Mathematics Seminar: Solving and learning phase field models using the modified Physics Informed Neural Networks

Conference/Seminar

Speaker: Jia Zhao, Assistant Professor Department of Math & Statistics, USU

Abstract: Phase field models, including the Allen-Cahn type and Cahn- Hilliard type equations, have been widely used to investigate interfacial dynamic problems. Designing accurate, efficient, and stable numerical algorithms for solving the phase field models has been an active field for decades. In the meanwhile, developing reliable and physically consistent phase field models for applications in science and engineering have also been intensively investigated. In this talk, I will introduce some preliminary results on solving and learning phase field models using deep neural networks.

Barns, Cows, Tractors, Horses, Hay, and Farmers

Exhibition

Farming and agriculture, the activities that feed us, are not usually the focus of landscape and outdoor paintings. However, artists constantly find bucolic, farming, and pastoral scenes an intriguing mix of nature and humanity. Celebrating agriculture through art, Barns, Cows, Tractors, Horses, Hay, and Farmers focuses on paintings, prints, and sculpture from the collection. Instead of depicting landscape devoid of human presence, these works of art reflect the imprint of humanity on the land in many different ways. A timeline of USU agricultural milestones will accompany the exhibition.

He has deep roots in both classical and jazz music, a vulnerable devotion to discovering his personal artistic voice, and a penchant for thrilling musical risk taking. A USU student ensemble, the Caine Jazz Combo, will lead off the evening as usual, followed by a tune or two featuring Ryan Nielsen. As part of the effort to engage students with jazz, students will then be encouraged to perform a jazz standard of their choice with Ryan Nielsen.

More Than a Body: Building Body Image Resilience

Workshop/Training

The Utah Women & Leadership Project invites you to join us for our second spring workshop of the academic year.

Our beauty-obsessed world perpetuates the idea that happiness, health, and the ability to be loved are dependent on how we look, but Lindsay and Lexie Kite offer an alternative vision. With insights drawn from their extensive body image research, Lindsay and Lexie—PhDs, founders of the nonprofit Beauty Redefined, and authors of the new book More Than a Body—lay out an action plan that arms you with the skills you need to reconnect with your whole self and free yourself from the constraints of self-objectification.

From media consumption to health and fitness to self-reflection and self-compassion, Lindsay and Lexie share powerful and practical advice that goes beyond “body positivity” to help develop body image resilience—all while cutting through the empty promises sold by media, advertisers, and the beauty and weight-loss industries. In the process, they show how facing your feelings of body shame or embarrassment can become a catalyst for personal growth.

Big Bands

Arts/Entertainment

The USU Jazz Ensemble, directed by Greg Wheeler, will perform four selections based on four completely different style of jazz. Bob Mintzer's rock-shuffle selection entitled "Mr. Funkâ" will open the show. Thereafter the band will lay back with a memorable Nestico/Basie based tune by Jim Martin entitled "The Count Is In." A powerful arrangement of Mambo Inn provides terrific jazz dissonance throughout this arrangement by Michael Mossman featuring many of the band members. The Jazz Ensemble will close the set with a classic from Super Mario 64 entitled "Bob-Omb Battlefield."

The USU Jazz Orchestra will close out the show with four selections of their own, including Bob Mintzer's tribute to the gateway through which so many immigrants came to America, Ellis Island. Michael Brecker's funky and soulful "Renaissance Man" follows, arranged by our very own jazz piano professor, Ryan Conger. Don Dimick's very Basie-esque "Tone Poem" will feature the trumpet stylings of Nik Clark, and to close, the entire saxophone feature steps out on the Maynard Ferguson Bebop Nouveau Band classic, "Cruisin' for a Bluesin."

Barns, Cows, Tractors, Horses, Hay, and Farmers

Exhibition

Farming and agriculture, the activities that feed us, are not usually the focus of landscape and outdoor paintings. However, artists constantly find bucolic, farming, and pastoral scenes an intriguing mix of nature and humanity. Celebrating agriculture through art, Barns, Cows, Tractors, Horses, Hay, and Farmers focuses on paintings, prints, and sculpture from the collection. Instead of depicting landscape devoid of human presence, these works of art reflect the imprint of humanity on the land in many different ways. A timeline of USU agricultural milestones will accompany the exhibition.

Three Depression-Era Photographers In Utah

Exhibition

Dorothea Lange (b. New Jersey, 1895 –d. San Francisco, 1965), Russell Lee (b. Ottawa, Illinois 1903–d. Austin, Texas 1986), and Arthur Rothstein (b. 1915, New York –d. 1985, New Rochelle, New York) are the three photographers who were hired by the Farm Security Administration to document rural Utah in the late 1930s. The portraits of agricultural workers and their families, and the land that they worked, provide a unique picture of Utah’s rural past. Lange, Lee, and Rothstein, all well-known photographers when they were hired for this project, took their photographs in rural towns and counties in Utah and these photographs include imagery of Box Elder and Cache Counties as well as Escalante, Santa Clara, Washington, and Widtsoe, Utah. The exhibition is comprised of 34 photographs by Lange, Lee, and Rothstein from the Nora Eccles Harrison Museum of Art collection.

American Farmer

Exhibition

American Farmer celebrates the living spirit of our heartland through the faces and voices of the people who keep it alive. Featuring 45 color and black and white portraits in addition to interviews with farmers from across the United States, American Farmer tells the inspiring stores of the stewards of this land. When photographer Paul Mobley set out to capture the soul of our country’s farm communities, he encountered an enduring rural culture that remains rooted in the principles of tradition, family, integrity, and hard work. Crisscrossing the country from Alaska to Florida, Mobley’s photographs show the geographic and cultural diversity of the American farmer. His photographs are accompanied by anecdotes and memories of their subjects. American Farmer is a traveling exhibition organized by Exhibits USA.
