A model for the Universe is proposed where the general relativity is modified in order to explain the irreversible evolution of the Universe. At the same time, the dichotomy matter-field of the Einstein equation is eliminated and the physical world is described only by means of a unified field. The Universe evolution is characterized by an oscillat...

A new integrable and nonlinear partial differential equation (PDE) in 2+1 dimensions is obtained, by an asymptotically exact reduction method based on Fourier expansion and spatiotemporal rescaling, from the Kadomtsev–Petviashvili equation. The integrability property is explicitly demonstrated, by exhibiting the corresponding Lax pair, that is obta...

Using an asymptotically exact reduction method based on Fourier expansion and spatiotemporal rescaling, a new integrable and nonlinear partial differential equation (PDE) in 2+1 dimensions is obtained starting from the Kadomtsev–Petviashvili equation. We apply the reduction technique to the Lax pair of the Kadomtsev–Petviashvili equation and demons...

We study a very peculiar nonlinear oscillator with an external two period quasiperiodic excitation, being the golden mean the ratio between the two frequencies. The two period quasi periodic forcing configuration gets an infinite frequencies number. As a consequence, we find the motion settles down in a twoperiod quasi periodic atttractor for a wid...

This paper studies a perturbative approach for the double sine–Gordon equation. Following this path, we are able to obtain a system of differential equations that shows the amplitude and phase modulation of the approximate solution. In the case λ = 0, we get the well-known perturbation theory for the sine–Gordon equation. For a special value λ = −1...

Using the Asymptotic Perturbation (AP) method we can find approximate solutions for the Maccari equation with a parametric resonant forcing acting over the frequency of a generic mode.

The nonlocal Hirota–Maccari equation is considered when a parametric excitation is acting over the frequency of a generic mode. Using the well-known asymptotic perturbation (AP) method, two coupled equations for the amplitude and phase can be obtained. We discovered the existence of an infinite-period bifurcation when the parametric force increases...

We consider a weakly nonlinear oscillator with a fractal forcing, given by the Weierstrass function, and use a perturbation method to study its behavior. Being this function nowhere differentiable we can only use adequate approximations. We find that while in the linear case the resulting motion is a simple superposition between the fractal forcing...

We study the Hirota-Maccari equation in 2+1 dimensions when an external excitation is in parametric resonance with the frequency of a generic mode.

We demonstrate the existence of an infinite-period bifurcation when the paramet...

Self excitations can be dangerous in many nonlinear systems and can produce catastrophic failures, that is a sudden and complete failure that cannot be put right. We extend the nonlocal vibration control to the suppression of the self-excited vibrations of the Liènard system. We introduce a non local control force that yields a third order non line...

The behavior of a mass point moving in a plane under the effect of a central field and an external periodic excitation in resonance with the natural frequency is studied.

la rinormalizzazione dell'elettrodinamica quantistica

The Maccari nonlinear system (MS) has been extensively employed to describe rogue waves but there is no unified framework in order to understand this important nonlinear behavior. In this paper we demonstrate that the MS can be considered as a model system for rogue waves. The MS system can be derived from nonlinear partial differential equations (...

Nei primi anni del Novecento, dopo il lavoro di Planck sul corpo nero e l'introduzione della quantizzazione, si sviluppa la fisica dei quanti, che cerca di applicare la nuova scoperta in altri campi di ricerca. Viene così sviluppata la teoria quantistica del calore specifico dei solidi e Bohr introduce la quantizzazione del momento angolare, per in...

Una importante rivoluzione concettuale si è verificata negli ultimi venti anni nel campo della fisica e si sta ora espandendo verso altre scienze. Frattali, caos e soli-toni sono i principali aspetti di questa nuova disciplina che è stata denominata fisi-ca (o anche, vista la sua natura interdisciplinare, scienza) non lineare. Un possibile percorso...

1. Introduzione Sul finire dell'Ottocento, il logico tedesco Gottlob Frege inizia una nuova linea di ricerca ten-dente a fornire una base logica alla teoria dei numeri naturali. Il logicismo, come poi sarà chiamata, voleva esprimere tutti i concetti dell'aritmetica mediante i soli concetti logici (§ 2). I numeri naturali non vanno considerati puri...

Il dibattito sulla possibilità di una conoscenza effettiva, sin dalle teorie platoniche e aristoteli-che, è stato sempre molto vivo e ricco di implicazioni epistemologiche ed ontologiche. Pas-sando per la vaga definizione di conoscenza dell'empirismo di Locke e per quella più articola-ta di Russell di conoscenza come credenza vera e giustificata, s...

Una delle maggiori difficoltà concettuali nell'apprendimento della Meccanica Quantistica è costituita dalla doppia natura corpuscolare e ondulatoria della materia e della luce. Un possi-bile percorso storico-didattico può essere costituito dall'analisi del ragionamento, basato mol-to sull'intuizione fisica e assai poco sull'astrazione matematica, c...

A partire dal 1925, viene elaborata, da Heisenberg, Born, Jordan, un gruppo di fisici a Gottinga, in Germania, la mec-canica delle matrici, che culminerà, qual-che anno dopo, nella cosiddetta interpre-tazione ortodossa della meccanica quan-tistica. Le basi fondanti della fisica clas-sica vengono completamente rigettate, il concetto di traiettoria p...

Sunto. Viene esposta una breve storia sui rapporti fra geometria e fisi-ca ed illustrato il dibattito su quale tipo di geometria, euclidea o non, sia la più adatta a descrivere le nuove caratteristiche dello spazio fisi-co, evidenziate dalla teoria della relatività generale di Einstein. Abstract. It is exposed a brief history about the relations be...

Via Alfredo Casella 3-00013 Mentana (RM) La meccanica quantistica nasce dal-l'unione della meccanica delle matrici, sviluppata soprattutto dai fisici di Got-tinga (Heisenberg, Born e Jordan), con la meccanica ondulatoria, nata con de Broglie e Schrodinger. Un ruolo impor-tante venne giocato anche da Einstein, con il suo lavoro sulla statistica dei...

Il percorso didattico richiede un tempo ind...
