Andrea Rapisarda - Top Italian Scientist in Physics
Andrea Rapisarda is associate professor of theoretical physics at the University of Catania, Italy. He has also the qualification of full professor in theoretical physics of fundamental interactions and in theoretical physics of condensed matter. He is also coordinator of a PhD course in “Complex systems for Physical, Socio-economic and Life Sciences”. He is an external faculty member of the Complexity Science Hub Vienna ,co-director of the International School on Complexity of the Ettore Majorana Foundation in Erice with A. Zichichi, G. Benedek, M. Gell-mann, C. Tsallis and member of the Council of the Complex Systems Society. He is co-author of more than 150 publications in international journals and member of the editorial board of Physica A, Heliyon, Cogent Physics, Frontiers in Physics (Social physics), Entropy, Complexity. His main interests of research are Complex Systems, Statistical mechanics, Deterministic chaos, Nonlinear dynamics, Complex networks and Multi-agent models applied to socio-economic systems. He is departmental delegate for strategic planning and president of the "Commissione paritetica" of DFA. He was also Rector's delegate for internationalization and Erasmus coordinator for the University of Catania in the period march 2013 - november 2016. More info at
