The Mathematical Physics group was born at the Mathematics Department “V. Volterra” of the University of Ancona (subsequently Department of Mathematical Sciences of the Marche Polytechnic University, since 2011 part of the Department of Industrial Engineering and Mathematical Sciences). Several people took part in this group in the past (among others Sandro Graffi, Luisa Arlotti, Riccardo Ricci, Laura Gardini, Giovanni Frosali, Renzo Lupini, Giampiero Spiga, Giorgio Busoni). Now the group consists of only one associate professor, whose research interests lie within the fields of quantum and classical kinetic theory, numerical methods in transport theory, perturbation methods and other analytical and numerical methods in the study of some mechanical systems.
Both research and teaching activities are pursued by the group.
The teaching activity concerns courses of Theoretical Mechanics, Calculus 1 and 2, Numerical Analysis, Probability and Statistics for the engineering degree courses in Ancona and Fermo. The research activity concerns quantum transport (in particular the Wigner-function approach) and the mathematical modelling of some mechanical systems by analytical and numerical methods.
Research is being pursued along two main lines:
