Research Activity of Armando Bazzani

In past years he contributed to the application of Birkhoff normal
forms for symplectic maps to accelerator physics. Recently the
research activity concerns the study of dynamical models relevant
for social and biological systems. In particular there have been
considered the applications of dynamical systems theory to neuronal
networks and evolution models. In the first case we have studied
the properties of the BCM neuron model for synaptic
plasticity

by considering the effect of a stochastic noise in the external
stimula. In the second case we are studying a mathematical modeling
for the evolution of phenotypic characters, based on a non-linear
Fokker-Planck equation, to reproduce the evolvability
character recently described by biologists. Finally the emergent
properties of an automata gas (i.e. a statistical systems

of cognitive particles) are studied for the applications to
modeling urban mobility.
