Research topics

My main field of investigation
concerns fully discrete systems, also known as cellular automata. A
cellular automaton is a dynamical systems defined on a lattice,
where time, space and dynamical
variables are discrete. Many classical models, like the Ising
model, or integration schemes of partial
differential equations, may be reformulated in terms of cellular
automata, eventually with
continuous variables (i.e., coupled map lattices). The dynamical
rule of cellular automata
may be deterministic or stochastic, and therefore one can
investigate their properties
using tools from dynamical systems or statistical mechanics.
Cellular automata and,
to a good extent, coupled map lattices, fir very well with a
computer architecture.
So, another way of considering these model is the following:
instad of formulating a
problem using continuous variables (i.e., partial differential
equations), and then find a
scheme to approximately compute the evolution of these equations
on a computer,
one can start from a microscopic model that fits well with the
computer architecture
and that, in the macroscopic limit, leads to the desired
equations. One such scheme is
applied to hydrodynamics. Lattice gas cellular automata are
discrete models that are
exactly computable and that, averaged over space, lead to a
hydrodynamical description.
Starting from such a model one can find a Boltzmann approximation
(lattice boltzmann
equation) that is particularly efficient in computational terms,
still retaining many
of the advantages of cellular automata (for instance, flexibility
in choosing boundary
conditions).
Cellular automata may be used
to model physical systems, or as mathematical models by itself.
One of the main motivations for this study is to investigate the
origin of complexity in extremely
simplified systems.
Finally, cellular automata
and similar schemes (for instance, using nonhomogeneus rules,
disordered lattices, etc.) are also well suited to investigate
biological systems.
In particular the main
research themes that I am developing are:
 A unified view of phase transitions with
absorbing states (directed percolation) and
synchronization of spatially extended systems, including
definition of unpredictability
in discrete (or stable) systems, definition of Lyapunov
exponents for discrete systems
and theirs relation with entropy.
 Role of competition in speciation and in
coevolution of ecosystems (in particular virus
and immune system).
 Opinion formation in simple
societies, with simple and complex individuals and
networks. Connections between genetics and sociology in
spreading of epidemics.
 Distance learning, automatic quiz
management, detachable learning objects.

Mathematical and statistical properties of
cellular automata

During my master thesis (director S. Ruffo), I
developed (after a project of N.
Cabibbo and in collaboration with A. Francescato) a
specialpurpose computer for
highspeed simulation of cellular automata [46,
48].
Using this machine and also a
CAM1 (by T. Toffoli), I’ve studied the statistical behavior
of a classical model (Game
of life) [2].
During this study I developed the concept of Boolean
derivatives [5],
applied to the Taylor development of Boolean
functions [6].
The minimization of
Boolean functions is a classical NP problem, so a general
result cannot be obtained.
Nevertheless, my formalism, that exploits in a natural way
the nonforcing properties of
the XOR function, seems to give good results for many
practical purposes, e.g. in the
development of microcode for integrated circuits. Moreover,
it has a physical meaning
and may be used to extend the idea of Lyapunov exponents to
discrete systems [9,
55,
57,
59,
68],
and to apply the concept of replica symmetry breaking to nonequilibrium
systems [12].
This replica symmetry
breaking transition (damage spreading) may be included in
the general framework of nonequilibrium phase
transitions in systems with one or
more absorbing states. These systems exhibit phase
transitions also in one spatial
dimensions and with shortrange interactions due to the
presence of one or more states
at infinite negative energy, that act as absorbing states.
I’ve studied such systems
using renormalization group techniques [7,
54],
and investigated the critical properties
of symmetric absorbing states [22,
66].
Another technique to promote nonequilibrium
phase transition is to add, to an equilibrium system, a
nonconservative external field [8].
Systems with
continuous phase transitions exhibit a critical state (extremely
long
correlations, slow dynamics, powerlaw behavior) in the
vicinity of the critical point.
However, the critical value of the control parameter has to
be finely adjusted and is
very sensitive to external perturbations. However, many
natural systems behaves as
if they were at the critical point, with automatic
finetuning of parameters. Another
point of view is that the role of control and order parameter
is reversed, since in
principle is much easier to keep the order parameter pinned
to its critical value (usually
zero) and let the control parameter adjust to its critical
value. For such systems the
term “selforganized criticality” has been forged. A
classical example is the sandpile
model, that in the fixedenergy version shows nontrivial
behavior [27].
An interesting
application of Boolean analysis is that it is possible to
transform a critical system into
a selforganized one [13].

Synchronization transitions

Somewhat related to phase
transitions with absorbing states, I’ve studied the problem
of synchronization of extended systems. Chaoticity is
related by the divergence
of trajectories; however, both direct coupling or
common noise may favor the
synchronization of chaotic systems. In spatially extended
systems (i.e., system described
by partial differential equations, or coupled map
lattices or cellular automata),
synchronization between two replicas of the same system may
occur in many different
ways. The synchronized state of two identical system
cannot be abandoned and
therefore act as an absorbing state. However, a
conjecture by Grassberger states
that the critical properties of the transitions are different
is this absorbing state is
stable against perturbations or not. In the first case the
transition has the character
of directed percolation, and in the second it is related to
the KardarParisiZhang
roughening transition. With P. Palmerini (master in Physics
under my direction), L.
Baroni (PhD student under the direction of R. Livi) F.
Cecconi and R. Rechtman,
we have investigated this problem in the context of chaotic
systems [18].
We have
also shown that a related phenomena is present in nonchaotic
systems, like stable
coupled maps [23]
and cellular automata [19],
contributing to the definition of
unpredictability in nonchaotic system. Actually,
unpredictability in extended system
has two origins: local chaoticity, i.e. production of
information, present in chaotic
systems, and propagation of information, present also in some
nonchaotic system. We
also showed that synchronization is useful in defining
unpredictability and complements
the usual definition based on chaoticity (i.e., positivity of
Lyapunov exponents).

Modelling of physical systems

During my master thesis, I’ve
spend some time studying experimentally (under the
guide of S. Ciliberto) the RayleighBènard convection in an
annular cell [1],
and then
I’ve tried to interpret some related experimental data
using a cellular automaton
model [47,
49].
After master thesis, I’ve
collaborated with some researcher in Geneva and Mons, and
applied cellular automata modeling to physical systems
in the study of fast ionic
conductors [4]
and catalysers [3,
51].
A more classic approach
(numerical computation of impact probabilities) has been used
in the modelling of a radon detector [20,
25],
getting result in good agreement with
experimental data.
I’ve also developed
(with C. Guardiani) a very simple model for polymer stretching [37]
(see next section).
Fluid systems may
also be studied using lattice cellular automata, although their
thermal properties may be quite unusual [56,
52,
10].
At present, R. Rechtman and
myself are studying the chaotic properties of such systems
and their connection with
entropy [82].
These models can be
used to study the relationship between dynamic properties
(Lyapunov exponents and KolmogorovSinai entropy) and
statistical properties
(thermodynamic entropy) [43].
This correspondence should have a general validity.
A generalization of
lattice cellular automata, the lattice Boltzmann equation (LBE),
can be successfully applied to model fluids in complex
geometries, or with thermal
effects. During his master thesis (under my supervision),
Luca Sguanci investigated the
possibility of using LBE for modeling sand transportation. We
found that the large
difference in density between sand and water caused large
shocks, so that LBE cannot
be approximated by linear terms, inducing numerical
instabilities. We prefer to use a
simpler phenomenological CA model for sand transportation,
that reproduces some of
the characteristics of ripple formation with a very efficient
coding [80].
A joint study with the
Laboratory of solar energy in Temixco, Mexico (R. Rechtman)
is in progress about modelling of thermal properties of
fluids and transport of particles
using LBE.
Finally, I’ve started
studying granular systems, in connection with experiments
performed at CINVESTAV, Merida (Mexico) with C. Ruiz
and the experimental
facilities of the Institute of Complex Systems (CNR,
Florence) and the Center for
the Study of Complex System (CSDC, University of Florence).
In this field I’m also
collaborating with A. Guarino, of the university of French
Polynesia.

Biology

Many of the techniques used in theoretical physics may
be successfully applied to
biology, which is a rapidly growing research field.
My main contribution to this
field are the studies, fist performed with a PhD student
under the direction of Roberto Livi, M. Bezzi, and then with
L. Sguanci (who completed
his master and PhD studies under my direction), C. Guardiani
(master studies under
my direction) and P. Lió (lecturer in computer science in
Cambridge, UK) about the
role of competition in promoting sympatric speciation [58,
11,
14,
15,
21].
This idea
complements well with that of quasispecies to explain
patterns of viral evolution [64,
36,
30,
77,
81]
and the emergence of typical speciation patterns [32,
33].
The basic
idea is that quasispecies form around maxima of fitness, with
a width that depends
on the curvature of the maximum and the mutation rate.
However, the fitness of a
given species depends not only on the characteristics of that
species, but also on the
ecosystem population, through predation, feeding and
competition. In particular, an
individual competes strongly with other individuals of the
same species, with which
the sharing of resources is maximum. This simple ingredient
allows to justify speciation
events in extremely structureless and homogeneous
environments.
With P. Lió and G.
Guasti (who performed part of her master thesis under my
direction), we have also studied codon usage in bacteria [11,
58].
I’m also interested in
the topological and metric structure of genotype space [24,
26],
and in the interplay between sociology and genetics in
epidemics[79]
Moreover, in Florence
I’m collaborating with the experimentalists of CSDC and ISC, in
particular in experiments concerning Atomic Force Microscopy
(AFM). In this context I
developed (with C. Guardiani) a simple model of polymer
stretching [37]
that illustrates
well the role of entropy in the interpretation of AFM
experiments.

Sociophysics

I’ve started an activity of
modelling of opinion formation in social systems [69,
78],
using techniques similar to that used in biological modeling,
in collaboration with R.
Rechtman (Temixco, Mexico), D. Fanelli (now at Manchester
University), T. Carletti
(University of Notre Dame de la Paix), A. Guarino (University
of French Polynesia)
and A. Guazzini (PhD student in Nonlinear Systems and Complex
Dynamics, Univ.
Florence).
I also developed a model
of individual [31],
that can be applied as a datamining
instrument in many fields. [72].
It is interesting to
investigate the role of perception of disease in epidemic
spreading [79]:
usual model of epidemics when applied to social networks (of scalefree
or smallworld character) give immediate spreading, which is
rather inconsistent with
observation. By including psychology, one can recover more
plausible patterns.

Distance teaching

I actively develop software for
distance teaching, in particular I designed and installed
(with the help of F. Franci, a former PhD student of myself),
the system WebTeach [70,
71,
73].
A main point of this system is WebCheck, a management system
for
mathematical quiz that includes paper handling and parametric
quiz generation.
At present, I’m developing
techniques based on detachable learning objects (web pages
that can be used without Internet connection) and teaching by
digital TV.

Other activities

 I am part of the Center for the Study
of Complex Dynamics (CSDC).
 I’m the Italian organizer of the
ItalyGreece agreement about researcher exchange
on “The structure of internet as a complex
network: virus spreading and
immunization techniques (20072008).
 I am the coordination of the Cultural
Agreement between the University of Florence
and the University of Gdansk (Poland).
