This is a follow-up on Report on Brotherhood member Gerardo Iovane.
Our informant tells us that certain links he bookmarked about Iovane are mysteriously going dead, all of a sudden. However, the National Library in Firenze has this record of his dissertation:
Iovane, Gerardo <1972- >
Cantorian space-time, dynamical systems and applications in cosmology : tesi di dottorato / Gerardo Iovane
A. a. 2001-2004. - In testa al front.: Università degli studi di Salerno, Facoltà di scienze matematiche, fisiche e naturali, dottorato di ricerca in matematica, 17. ciclo, 3. nuova serie
I. Università degli studi
515 (ed. 21) - ANALISI MATEMATICA
Cod. materia: MAT/05 - Analisi matematica
Monografia - Tesi di dottorato - Pubbl. in: Italia - Lingua: inglese
Collocazione: TDR 2005 0932
It's from 2005 and in English. There's no indication from this record who supervised it. It was awarded by the University of Salerno, where he was already on the faculty. We'd like to get our hands on it, and also to find out about his earlier physics thesis.
Here's a shocker. Annals of Mathematics is perhaps the hardest math journal to get a paper accepted into. Look at this from the arXiv: The Set of Prime Numbers (PDF).
Iovane's ramblings about prime numbers, as we know, actually ended up in El Naschie's Chaos, Solitons and Fractals. He settled for second best, haha.
At around the same time as his math thesis, Iovane published several papers whose titles suggest their content is drawn from the thesis:
- Iovane G., Mohamed El Naschie’s E-infinity Cantorian space-time and its consequences in cosmology, Chaos, Solitons and Fractals, 25, 775-779, 2005.
- Iovane G., Giordano P., Salerno S., Dynamical systems on El Nashie’s E(∞) Cantorian space-time, Chaos, Solitons and Fractals, 24, 2, 423-441, 2005.
- Iovane G. and Salerno S., Dynamical Systems on Cantorian spacetime and applications (PDF), WSEAS Transactions on Mathematics [WSEAS has a reputation for publishing crackpottery, I am told. Our headline graphic comes from this paper.], 4, 3, 184, 2005.
- Iovane G., Giuliano G., Zappale E., A potential theory for describing Dynamical Systems on El Naschie’s E(∞) Cantorian space-time, in press on Chaos, Solitons and Fractals, Vol. 27, Issue 3, pag. 588-598, February 2006.
Shrink notes that Webometrics ranks the University of Salerno 775th in the world, 331st in Europe, and 28th in Italy.
