TEACHING

Information and holography

Course devoted to exploring the thermodynamical features of gravity through the study of entropy bounds. The Course is aimed at Ph.D. students (or of last year of Second Cycle Degree Programme).
Contents, References

Thermodynamics of spacetime

Course devoted to providing tools for the derivation of the gravitational field equations from a novel extremum principle of thermodynamic nature. The Course is aimed at Ph.D. students (or of last year of Second Cycle Degree Programme).
Contents, References

The atomic hypothesis, and the constituents of atom
Part (a module) of the Courses of Introduction to Modern Physics, for undergraduate students.
Contents, References

"Mondo del lavoro"
Papers produced by the students as Mondo del Lavoro's activities. They are meant as additional potentially-interesting references, for introductory-level Physics courses.
