Astronomical illustrated manuscripts
The research group has the goal to develop interdisciplinary studies on the astronomical illustrated manuscripts of the mediaeval tradition (starting from the so called Araea, Latin translations of the Phaenomena of Aratus and related texts) with a special focus on the relations between the illustrations and the texts.
Research group on Virgilian manuscripts (9th-11th century)
The group's main research interest concerns the medieval transmission of Virgil's Opera, with a focus on Carolingian and Beneventan manuscripts.
Research group for Ancient Greek Music: Execution Praxis, Forms of Reflection, Transmission of Texts
The common project of the group is a study of the forms of execution praxis in ancient musical genres through the analysis of different sources.
Research group on private modern philosophy collections
This research group aims to publish online or CD catalogues of important private collections from philosophers and from scholars with large collections of philosophy texts.
Faculty of Mathematical and Natural Sciences
Condensed Matter and Quantum Information Theory group
The group is presently active in the study of of quantum transport, quantum-many body systems, superconductors, semiconductors, and quantum information.
Quantitative Finance group
The research activity of the group has the aim of using quantitative methods, both analytical and empirical, to investigate several aspects of financial markets at different time scales. The group has active collaborations with universities and research centers, banks, investment firms, IT companies, and market regulators.
Research group in Harmonic Analysis
Research includes various aspects of Fourier analysis in classical fields, as convolution operators, Fourier multipliers and singular integrals, and aspects of non commutative harmonic analysis, in particular in nilpotent Lie groups and symmetric spaces, with applications in complex analysis and in the equations of partial derivates.
Research Group in Astrophysics
The Astrophysics group consists of researchers with interests in various topics in modern High Energy Astrophysics, mostly, but not exclusively, from a theoretical viewpoint.
Research group in Calculus of Variations and Geometric Measure Theory
Research into different problems of non linear analysis with techniques of calculus of variations and of geometric measure theory. The most recent results of the group in this field include the theory of optimal transport, the well-posedness of transport and continuity equations with irregular data, generalized graphs and their singularities, the problems of parabolic evolution (for measures, surfaces, harmonic maps), Geometric Measure Theory in metric spaces.
Research group for Cosmology
The current research of the group focuses on the early stages of cosmic galaxy formation, the so-called Cosmic Dark Ages, that took place during the first billion years after the Big Bang.
Research group in Theoretical Physics
The interests and the research areas of the group are: i) Phenomenology of Elementary Particles; ii) Cosmology and Astroparticle Physics; iii) Supergravity, String Theory, Field Theory; iv) Higher Spins.
Research group in Complex Analysis and Analytical Geometry
Complex analysis and analytical geometry, geometry of the CR varieties, of the Levi-flat varieties and related non-linear problems. Holomorphic envelopes and Levi problems. Structure of weakly pseudo-complete complex spaces.
Elementary Particle Research group
The group takes part to experiments with accellerators involving extremely wide and international research teams. The center of activity is the CERN in Geneva, where the Large Hadron Collider is now operative.
The Laboratory Fibonacci is an international research unit placed under the joint responsibility of the French CNRS (National Centre for Scientific Research) and the Scuola Normale Superiore di Pisa acting on behalf of the Centro di Ricerca Matematica Ennio de Giorgi. The agreement between CNRS and the SNS is concluded for a four-year term starting 1st January 2012.
