Angelo Vulpiani is a full professor of theoretical physics at the Physics Department of the University of Rome “Sapienza”, and a fellow of the Institute of Physics. His scientific interests include chaos and complexity in dynamical systems, statistical mechanics of non-equilibrium and disordered systems, developed turbulence, phenomena of transport and diffusion and foundations of physics.
Angelo has graduated from Rome University “Sapienza” in 1977. He was CNR Fellow from 1978–1981, assistant professor at Rome University from 1981–1988, associate professor at University of L’Aquila from 1988–1991 and at the University of Rome from 1991–2000. He was a visiting fellow in research institutions and universities in France, Belgium, Sweden, Denmark, and the United States.
Angelo has written about 300 scientific papers and has co-authored several books, including “Dynamical Systems: Approach to Turbulence” (Cambridge University Press, 1998), “Chaos and Coarse Graining in Statistical Physics” (Cambridge University Press, 2008), and “Reductionism, Emergence and Levels of Reality” (Springer-Verlag, 2014).
