I lead the Quantum Physics Research Division at the ISI Foundation here in Torino.  I actively contribute technical blog articles to the  Azimuth Project, which is devoted to prices fo cialis using methods from Mathematics and viagra on internet prescription online particularly, techniques developed in quantum theory, to address environmental challenges. I am working on two research books on cialis soft tab india mathematical physics which can be found online: Quantum Techniques for Stochastic Mechanics and Tensor Networks in Quantum Theory. My current work focuses on developing new mathematical tools to model systems and towards a unified theory of networks.
