Prof. Antonio Di Nola
From 1977 to 1990 his main scientific interests were the theory of fuzzy sets and fuzzy relations. Since 1990, his interest is mainly devoted to the study of MV-algebras, the algebraic models of Lukasiewicz Logic. In this area he has studied varieties of MV-algebras, functional representation problems for classes of MV-algebras, normal forms and connections between MV-algebras and Abelian lattice-ordered groups.
Currently he is pursuing the following research lines: an algebraic theory for operators on MV-algebras that mimic probability operators in the framework of many-valued logics, a description of MV-algebras in terms of semirings, the study of Forcing methods in Lukasiewicz Logic, sheaf representation of MV-algebras, application of MV-algebras to digital image processing.
He is author/coauthor of more than 100 scientific works, published on international journals of logic, algebra and computer science.
He has been invited speaker in many national and international conferences
He has been, and is, in the Editorial Board of several international scientific journals, among which: Journal of Mathematical Analysis and Applications, Fuzzy Sets and Systems, Mathematica Slovaca, Fuzzy Optimization and Decision Making.
He is Editor in Chief of the international journal "Soft Computing", Springer-Verlag.
He is coauthor of the monography "Fuzzy Relation Equations and Their Applications to Knowledge Engineering" (A. Di Nola, W. Pedrycz, S. Sessa, E. Sanchez - Kluwer Acad. Publ.) and co-editor of the volume "Lectures on Soft Computing and Fuzzy Logic", Springer.
He has been visiting professor in many prestigious universities such as Oxford University, Hunter College - City University of New York, Beijing Normal University, University of California at Berkeley, Centre d'Estudis Avançats de Blanes (Spain), University of Barcelona, Academy of Sciences of the Republic of Georgia, University of Patras, University of Helsinki, University of Ostrava, University of Bucharest, Academy of Sciences of the Slovak Republic
