CDLab online!

We are glad to announce that our new Computational Dynamics Laboratory – CDLab is online now! The site is still under construction, but stay tuned for interesting updates that will be soon launched…

INdAM PhD Marie Curie

The first call for INdAM (“Istituto Nazionale di Alta Matematica”) Doctoral Programme in Mathematics and/or Applications cofunded by Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions is now open, deadline 31 may 2017. The PhD programme at DIMA is an official partner, if interested please contact me.

new year, new department – update

Since january 1st 2016, DiMI has changed denomination and now it is Department of Mathematics, Computer Science and Physics. Eventually, we voted for an official acronym, DMIF, which stands for the italian “Dipartimento di Matematica, Informatica e Fisica”. Even though it does not seem to be so, since everybody still uses DIMA.

PhD course on LEs

After some years spent on numerically approximating Lyapunov exponents for systems with delay, I eventually realized that the time has come to properly learn something about these numbers. Then, to put things in order in my mind, I thought that giving a course to PhD’s would have been a good idea. Here‘s the result: a light introduction for ODEs, with an eye on theory and the other on computation. Let’s see if I was right then…

new SpringerBriefs!


Finally, we’ve got it! I am happy to announce that our new monograph for the series SpringerBriefs has been published. Have a look in the books page or directly here. The relevant Matlab codes can be downloaded from the software page. Of course, any comment is appreciated!

dynamical systems at BCAM


Next week I will fly to Bilbao in occasion of the Workshop on Dynamical Systems and Applications, held at the Basque Center for Applied Mathematics (BCAM). The event is co-organized by Julia Sánchez Sanz, PhD student there, who visited UNIUD last september. We are collaborating on the stability and bifurcation analysis of equilibria of Daphnia, a resource-consumer system modelled by coupled renewal and delay differential equations. Although complicated from the computational standpoint, we hope to achieve some interesting results soon…
