My cuurent research interest concerns mainly the theoretical foundation of Statistical Physics for the study of non-Gibbsian systems observed mostly in natural sciences and socio-economic disciplines. Other topics touched in the past pertain different problems in statistical and mathematical physics: 1) Soliton solutions for nonlinear Schroedinger equations and gauge symmetries of third kind; 2) Quantum deformed algebras and their applications in dynamical systems and statistical mechanics; 3) Lie symmetries of kinetic equations and anomalous diffusion equation; 4) Generalized entropic forms and non-extensive thermostatistics including the geometrical aspect of the information theory and thermodynamics. In these fields I published about 80 papers, organized a series of international conferences, editing 11 volumes of scientific journals and presiding a PhD course at the Politecnico di Torino.

Interest areas:

Nonextensive statistical mechanics; Nonlinear Fokker-Planck equations; Nonlinear Schroedinger equations; Geometry information; Quantum groups and quantum algebras
