Returning by popular demand!

Following the success of our January Book Sale, we are once again seeking book donations for another sale. All donations would be greatly appreciated. Pick-up service available!

Come support our 50th anniversary legacy fund at our Book Sale where you'll find books of all kinds, from all genres, on sale, for $1, $2 or $3. All proceeds will help contribute to experiential learning (field trips, etc.) for our students!

With thanks in advance to all of our donors, our customers and especially our Association of Political Science Students for all their assistance!

    Lorenzo Fatibene, University of Turin, Italy

    Since 2011 Lorenzo Fatibene is a full professor of Mathematical Physics at the Department of Mathematics “Giuseppe Peano” of the University of Torino (Italy). He has a degree in Physics (1992) and a PhD in Mathematics (1999) and he has been a researcher at the University of Torino between 1999 and 2011. His research interests are in geometrical methods for field theory, variational calculus and conservation laws in generally covariant and gauge theories. Recently, he is investigating extended theories of gravitation and their applications to astrophysical and cosmological models.


    Extended Theories of Gravitation


    We shall introduce Extended Theories of Gravitation which extend standard General Relativity by allowing geometries on spacetime more general than the usual Lorentzian metric structure. Palatini f(R)-theories are considered as an example and application. Their ability to model dark matter and dark energy as the effect of modified dynamics of gravitational field rather than fundamental matter fields and applications to cosmology will be discussed.

    Refreshments will be provided.
