"Philosophy is
written in this grand book, the
universe, which stands continually open to our gaze. But the book
cannot be understood unless a person first learn to comprehend the
language and read the letters in which it is composed. It is written in
the language of mathematics, and its characters are triangles, circles
and other geometric figures without which it is humanly impossible to
understand a single word of it. Without these, one wanders about in a
dark labyrinth" (original Italian text: "La
filosofia e' scritta
in questo grandissimo libro che continuamente ci sta aperto innanzi a
gli occhi (io dico l'universo), ma non si puo' intendere se
prima
non s'impara a intender la lingua, e conoscer i caratteri, ne' quali e' scritto. Egli e' scritto in lingua matematica, e
i
caratteri sono triangoli, cerchi, ed altre figure geometriche, senza i
quali mezi e' impossibile a intenderne umanamente parola;
senza
questi e' un aggirarsi vanamente per un'oscuro
laberinto'') G.Galilei
"If an idea is beautiful, it
will very llkely be also true" P.A.M.Dirac
"It from Bit" J.A.Wheeler
"A theory is something nobody
believes, except the person who made it. An experiment is
something everybody believes, except the person who made it."
"Just
do what you want to do and don't pay any attention to anything else.
Never in my career have I spent five minutes doing something I didn't
want to be doing"
P.Feyerabend
"...
to reach out in my own way to the things I wished to learn, rather than
relying on the notions of the consensus, overt or tacit, coming from a
more or less extended clan of which I found myself a member, or which
for any other reason laid claim to be taken as an authority ... It is
in this gesture of 'going beyond,' to be something in oneself rather
than the pawn of a consesus, the refusal to stay within a rigid circle
that others have drawn around one - it is in this solitary act that one
finds true creativity" A.Grothendieck
"Learn as if you should live
forever and live as if you should die tomorrow'' M.Gandhi
Welcome!
My name is Paolo Bertozzini and
I am a mathematical-physicist.
I currently support myself teaching at the Department of Mathematics
and
Statistics of the Faculty
of Science and Technology of Thammasat
University in Bangkok - Thailand.
Here below You will find
some (hopefully useful) detailed information on my work, interests,
hobbies and life in Thailand :-)
Thanks for visiting!

A "Farang" Guide to Pure
Mathematics Research in Thailand (not functional now
... coming soon) this
is a very preliminary attempt to provide, to foreign mathematicians
interested in collaboration with Thai mathematician, a small database
of researchers in *pure mathematics* and some coordinates. Interesting
