Research Interests

  • here is a short list of the more recent investigations in AI Software and Physics
  • Development of the "Theory of Universal Lexicons" and its possible applications in various fields like compression and alternative hybrid models of computation as in the following where an attempt is made to merge analog and digital models towards an All Optical Computer
  • The Symbolic Transform for Image Compression and Classification. The purpose would be to be able to categorize faces or other objects by a bunch of unique complex vectors. Other interesting properties of this indexing scheme are currently under investigation. You can get a presentation of the current state of research in the field here

  • Electromagnetics. Research on special non linear "force-free" (Beltrami) fields. Click here [BELTRAMI.PPT] for a short review.Mesh-Free algorithms for simulations. Research on Exploding Wires under extreme power - low energy electrical pulses and the "Low Energy Lattice Assisted Nuclear Transmutation (LELANT) Hypothesis". Exploding Wires

  • Molecular Mechanics - Molecular Dynamics. Polymer dynamics and diffusion processes.Fractality and Complexity issues of molecular orbits

  • The Digital Universe At the theoretical domain I am particularly interested in the possible algorithmic equivalence between physical processes and programs as proclaimed by the Fredkin-Zuse Conjecture of Digital Mechanics.

  • My recent eforts are concentrated around the complete arithmetization and algebrization of computational structures Arithmetization-I Arithmetization-II Arithmetization-III
  • History & Philosophy of Science & Technology

    • Techno-Feudalism, Esoptron editions,2007.
        A short essay on the consequences of massive introduction of advanced technology into the masses in the era of neo-liberalism and a critique of the ideology of Trans-Humanism from the point of view of the betrayal of Enlightenment ideals.
