Francesco Guerra is Professor Emeritus of Theoretical Physics at the Physics Department of the University of Rome “La Sapienza.”
His research activity was mainly oriented towards quantum field theory, in the Euclidean formulation, the lattice gauge theories for elementary particles, stochastic mechanics, physics of complex systems, and the history of nuclear physics in Rome.
His current research interests mainly concern the theory of replica symmetry breaking for complex systems, using methods that allow an interpolation on the number of replicas.
Furthermore, he is completing a monograph on Ettore Majorana based exclusively on primary sources. The scope of the research, led in collaboration with professor Nadia Robotti, is to portray the great scientist beyond the stereotypes that still weigh on his figure.
