BASIC RESEARCH

  • Hamiltonian and Lagrangian systems solutions;study of geodesics on Riemannian, subRiemannian and Lorentzian manifolds;differential equations with nonholonomic constraints and applications to optimal control problems.

  • Light rays in spacetimes and description of Gravitational Lensing effect;gravitational collapse of relativistic fluids;homogeneous scalar fields for the studyof the "horizon problem" in the classical big bang theory;higher order gravity theories;spherically symmetric scalar fields.
