Biographical Review

Piergiulio Tempesta is professor of Applied Mathematics at the Universidad Complutense de Madrid, Department of Física Teórica II. His main research interests focus on integrable systems and algebraic number theory. In particular, his work deals with nonlinear partial differential equations, integrable maps, superintegrable systems, and the applications of algebraic topology to the theory of zeta functions. Recently, he proposed a categorical approach to the discretization of dynamical systems, and a class of L-series related to the Lazard universal formal group. He also works in the theory of complex systems, with special attention to generalized entropies and their number-theoretical properties.

Dr. Tempesta is author of about 55 papers. His most recent publications include articles in Transactions of the American Mathematical Society, Journal of Differential Equations, Annali Scuola Normale Superiore di Pisa, Scientific Reports - Nature, Nonlinear Analysis, Annals of Physics, etc.

Born in Italy, Dr. Tempesta has held full time research positions in the Centre de recherches mathématiques, Université de Montréal, in the Centro di ricerche matematiche Ennio De Giorgi, Scuola Normale Superiore, Pisa, and in the International School for Advanced Studies (SISSA), Trieste. He has been also a Ramon y Cajal fellow in Mathematics (1º position).

Recently, he has been a short term visitor to several research centres, including the Newton Institute for Mathematical Sciences, Cambridge, the Universities of Lecce and Roma, and the Center of Mathematics – Oslo, as Abel extraordinary chair.

He has been an invited speaker at more than 30 conferences and co-organizer of 9 international conferences.

Editor of European Physical Journal.
