The activity in Mathematical Analysis is mainly focussed on ordinary and partial differential equations, on dynamical systems, on the calculus of variations, and on control theory. Connections of these topics with differential geometry are also developed.
The activity in Mathematical Modelling is oriented to subjects for which the main technical tools come from mathematical analysis. The present themes are multiscale analysis, mechanics of materials, micromagnetics, modelling of biological systems, and problems related to control theory.
The Applications of Mathematics developed in this course are related to to scientific computing and to the numerical analysis of partial differential equations and of control problems. This activity is organized in collaboration with MathLab for the study of problems coming from the real world, from industrial applications, and from complex systems.
Main research lines:
- Calculus of Variations and Multiscale Analysis
- Conservation Laws and Transport Problems
- Geometric Control Theory and Sub-Riemannian Geometry
- Mechanics of Materials and of Biological Systems
- Nonlinear Analysis
- Numerical Analysis
- Systems Biology
