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 special-purpose computer for high-speed simulation of cellular automata [46, 48]. Using this machine and also a CAM-1 (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 non-forcing 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 short-range 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, power-law 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 fine-tuning 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 “self-organized criticality” has been forged. A classical example is the sandpile model, that in the fixed-energy version shows nontrivial behavior [27]. An interesting application of Boolean analysis is that it is possible to transform a critical system into a self-organized 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 Kardar-Parisi-Zhang 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 non-chaotic systems, like stable coupled maps [23] and cellular automata [19], contributing to the definition of unpredictability in non-chaotic 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 non-chaotic 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 Rayleigh-Bènard 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 Kolmogorov-Sinai 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 scale-free or small-world 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.
