  • informazioni per gli STUDENTI (only italian)

    My main mathematical interests are Ultrafilters, General Algebra, General Topology, Model Theory, Set Theory, Ordered Sets and Foundations of Mathematics.

    The suggested place for readers interested in my work is arXiv.org . There you can find recent or otherwise unpublished material and possibly extended versions of pubished material.
    An updated list of published papers can be found here, or using zbMath and MathSciNet. Journal-refs on arXiv.org are updated, too.

    Here you can download some manuscripts (mostly older material not present in arXiv), a very short curriculum (italiano, english) and slides from some talks.You can also find my contact informations, and some (very disparate) links.

    For all of my works, an important disclaimer is in charge, regarding possible misuses of the reference lists.
