Personal profile

Antonio Maria Scarfone

The information published in this page are entirely managed by ANTONIO MARIA SCARFONE who is completely responsible for it.

My current 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 pertain topics concerns 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
