Mirko Degli Esposti, degree in Physics, PhD in Mathematics, is a full Professor of Mathematical Physics and for the last seven years he has been the chairman of the Department of Mathematics of the University of Bologna.

Initially his researches addressed mathematical questions in: quantum chaos, semiclassical analysis, statistical mechanics, ergodic theory for strongly or weakly chaotic systems.

Few years ago he turned his attention to mathematical techniques for the analysis of literary texts, algorithms for authorship attribution and, more general, to mathematical models for textual data and information dynamics on non structured data. He collaborates with SONY Computer Science Laboratory in Paris, exploring the mathematical aspects of automatic generation of textual and musical contents.
