My name is Alberto Tacchella. I am a researcher in mathematical
physics, currently on sabbatical leave.
Research interests
Broadly speaking, I am interested in the mathematical modeling of
physical systems, using the methods of modern (algebraic and/or
differential) geometry. I also have a life-long interest in computer
programming and its foundations, including type theory and formal
logic.

This talk is about my contribution to the EU-funded
CARVE project, in which I
developed a certified interpreter for Behavior Trees
which has been deployed on actual hardware (the R1 robot) at
the Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia.
These slides contain a tentative definition of a notion
of associative Kähler manifold that unfortunately went
nowhere (at least for now), due to a lack of significant examples.
Integrable systems
on quivers.
Invited talk at the 2016 Christmas workshop on Quivers, Moduli Spaces
and Integrable Systems in Genoa (December 2016).
I had so much fun in preparing this talk! In case you were
wondering, the excerpt from Korteweg's letter to de Vries is taken
from de Vries' biography freely available online at
the MacTutor History of
Mathematics archive.
