Research Interests

My main research focuses on: applications of (nonclassical) mathematical logic in computer sciences and artificial intelligence, theorem proving, reasoning about uncertainty, parallel programming ...
My additional research interests: digitization of cultural heritage (see: National Center for Digitization).

"The good Christian should beware the mathematician and all those who make empty prophecies. The danger already exists that the mathematicians have made a covenant with the devil to darken the spirit and to confine man in the bonds of hell."
Augustine of Hippo (Aurelius Augustinus Hipponensis, November 13, 354 - August 28, 430, Bishop of Hippo Regius, also known as St. Augustine)

"Computer science is no more about computers than astronomy is about telescopes."
Edsger Dijkstra (1930 - 2002, Dutch computer scientist, received the 1972 Turing Award for fundamental contributions to developing programming languages)

"Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to reform (or pause and reflect)."
Mark Twain, 1904.

"Perfect behavior is born of complete indifference."
Franis de La Rochefoucauld

"We mathematicians are true poets with a calling. But we still must prove our poetry!"
Leopold Kronecker

"Poetry is as precise a thing as geometry."
Gustave Flaubert

"If you support Tottenham you always give more love than you get back... Tottenham is the worst kind of bad team, because they're almost good. They always promise that they're going to be fantastic. They make you hope. So you go on loving them and they carry on finding more and more innovative ways of disappointing you. Aston Villa supporters chose their team because no one else has and because they have nice jerseys. "
Fredrik Backman, Britt-Marie Was Here, 2014

"I am absolutely incapable of adding without mistakes."
Henri Poincare. Mathematical creation. The Monist, 20(3):321–335, 1910

"What does not work easily does not work at all."
Kurt Gödel, Maxims for mathematical research

"Dieu me pardonne, dit Bussy, je crois qu'il parle tout seul. Allons, ce n'est ni un ivrogne ni un fou: c'est un mathematicien qui cherche la solution d'un probleme. (God forgive me, said Bussy, I think he talks to himself. Come on, he is neither a drunkard nor a madman: he is a mathematician who seeks the solution of a problem.)"
Alexandre Dumas, La Dame de Monsoreau, 1846

"That was a chance which deserved attentive consideration, and Chicot was in the habit of believing in providential chances. He developed, even, whenever he was begged to do so, some very ingenious theories on the subject. The basis of these theories was an idea, which, in our opinion, was quite as good as any other; it was as follows: Chance is a kind of reserve held in bond by the Deity. Heaven never communicates that reserve except in momentous circumstances, particularly since He has observed that men are sagacious enough to study and foresee the chances which may befall them in accordance with natural causes and regularly organized principles of existence. Moreover, Heaven likes to counteract the combinations of those proud members of the human race whose pride in by-gone times He has already punished by drowning them, and whose future pride He surely will punish in destroying them by fire. Heaven, therefore we say, or Chicot said, Heaven is pleased to counteract the combinations of those proud and haughty human beings by means with which they are unacquainted, and whose intervention they cannot foresee."
Alexandre Dumas, The Forty-Five Guardsmen, 1847.
