Current research activity

( noncommutative ) differential topology and geometry ... and ... uses in mathematical physics

Main lines of research:
noncommutative manifolds (construction of metric and spin structures, vector and principal bundles),
harmonic analysis on noncommutative manifolds (Dirac and Laplace operators, index theorems),
noncommutative gauge theories (duality equations, constructions of solutions, study of moduli spaces),
Hopf algebras and quantum groups (as noncommutative manifolds, their use as generalized symmetries),

a.a. 2014-2015:

Geometria (primo semestre LT ingegneria):
tutte le informazioni sono qui;
in particolare il programma e le dispense sono qui mentre le date degli appelli sono qui.

Fisica Matematica 1 (secondo semestre LM matematica):
tutte le informazioni sono qui.

Si consiglia fortemente agli studenti interessati al corso di FM1 di seguire al primo semestre il corso di Geometria Differenziale 1 del prof. Boris Dubrovin.
