research

My research activity has ranged over a variety of
topics, usually within a theoretical and mathematical,
sometime probabilistic, approach, also with the help of
numerical techniques, but never neglecting
phenomenological aspects. A common feature is the study
of complex quantum systems, i.e., systems where the
presence of (infinitely) many quantum degrees of freedom
is the source of phenomena that do not occur at the
classical level or for a few degrees of
freedom. Paraphrasing the title of a famous paper by
P.W. Anderson, more is different but quantum more is
even more different. A list of keywords describing my
research activity should include: quantum phase
transitions, open quantum systems and quantum
measurement theory, probabilistic methods for quantum
many-body systems, quantum computing, chiral systems,
quantum chaos, semiclassical limit, nonlinear
Schrödinger equations, mesoscopic systems, quantum
degeneracy in dilute gases, quantum noise in tunneling,
Auger spectroscopy, stochastic resonance.
