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

"I am absolutely incapable of adding without mistakes."

Henri Poincare. Mathematical creation. The Monist, 20(3):321–335, 1910.

"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 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.
