Main scientific areas of research
- Physics of gas discharges
- Plasma physics
Other scientific areas of interest
- Kinetic Theory
- Special relativity
- Atomic and molecular physics
- Electromagnetic theory
My work is essentially related to the kinetic modelling of electrical
discharges in atomic and molecular gases, both for pure gases and their mixtures.
I studied mostly the cases of Nitrogen, Oxygen, Carbon Dioxide and
the mixtures N2
-A and N2
I am involved as well in work related to the foundations of special
relativity and of thermodynamics.
