Mario Salerno is Associate Professor of Solid State Physics at the
__University of Salerno__ and a member of the
National Institute of Condensed Matter Physics
(__ INFM__), Unita' di Salerno .
He has been working for extended periods of time in many Universities and international centers these including
the University of Wisconsin, the __Los Alamos National Laboratory__,
the __MIDIT__
at the Technical University of Denmark, the University of Arizona.
His research interests lie in the fields of classical and quantum nonlinear
dynamics (__Solitons__)
with applications to Condensed Matter Physics, these including:
__Fluxon's dinamics in Josephson junctions__,
__ Solitons and Shock waves in molecular chains __,
__Quantum lattice models and strongly correlated Fermi systems__,
__Integrability and Chaos in Classical and Quantum systems__,
__Nonlinear Properties of DNA __.
He is author of more than 100 publications, of which more than 80 in
international refereed scientific journals. Among the most significant
results there are the development of the theory of the linewidth of a
Josephson oscillator, the development of the theory of
phase locking of fluxons in long Josephson junctions, the introduction of group theoretical methods for exact diagonalizations of strongly correlated electronic systems,
the introduction of a nonlinear model which is a generalization of the tight binding Schrödinger model for the dynamics of a
quasiparticle in a molecular crystal. Moreover,
he introduced the idea of chaos suppression by weak external
periodic signals, as well as the first nonlinear model of DNA which attempts to
relate the dynamics to the functioning of the molecule. He has coordinated international projects
and acts as referee for several journals, among others Physical Review Letters and Physical Review B.
He has participated as invited speaker to many international conferences, several times as organizer or
as member of the Scientific Committee.
