TEACHING


Since 2001, I have been carrying out several teaching activities at the University of Messina, where I held the following courses:

  • Metodi Matematici della Fisica II (Laurea triennale in Fisica)
  • Istituzioni di Fisica Teorica B (Laurea triennale in Fisica)
  • Fisica ed elementi di calcolo matematico e statistico (corso integrato, Laurea magistrale in Farmacia)
  • Fisica dei sistemi a molti corpi/Statistical Physics (Laurea magistrale in Fisica)
  • Modelli statistici esattamente risolubili (Dottorato di Ricerca in Fisica)
  • Metodi numerici per lo studio di transizioni di fase (Dottorato di Ricerca in Fisica)
  • Simulazione di sistemi fuori dall'equilibrio (Dottorato di Ricerca in Fisica)
  • Fisica dei sistemi a molti corpi (Dottorato di Ricerca in Fisica)
  • Teoria e simulazione della nucleazione di un cristallo da un liquido (Dottorato di Ricerca in Fisica)
  • Problematiche contemporanee della Fisica I (Scuola Interuniversitaria Siciliana di Specializzazione per l'Insegnamento Secondario, indirizzo Fisico-Informatico-Matematico)

At present (2019/20 academic year), I am holding three courses:
