Research Interests

The theory of nonlinear (algebraic, differential, partial differential, integro-
differential, difference, functional) equations treatable by spectral means. In
particular,


1. the study of the rich mathematical aspects of such a theory, involving
several branches of Mathematics: Algebra, Complex Analysis, Differential
Geometry, Discrete Geometry, and Algebraic Geometry;


2. the study of the interesting applications to the Natural Sciences.
