Publications and preprints
The page is organized into two sections, each of which corresponds to a milestone, let's say, in my
original career path as a wannabe mathematician:
Notes. (i) As a rule of thumb, a PDF copy of a thesis, an article, etc. available on this page is always the most recent version of the same document. (ii) Some journals are now making their archives accessible for free. The links below, if available, link to a published version (which is possibly behind a paywall) or a free preprint of my papers, theses, etc. In all cases, a copy of each publication or preprint can be provided on request (just send an email to the address
salvo.tringali (at) gmail.com).

PhD thesis of the Università di Reggio Cal., Italy
Speciality: electronics engineering  Subspeciality: computational electromagnetics
Laurea thesis of the Università di Reggio Cal., Italy
Speciality: electronics engineering  Subspeciality: computational electromagnetics
Title of the thesis: 
Diagonalization of nonselfadjoint operators resulting from the study of the scattering of electromagnetic fields by ideal cylindrical conductors (in Italian) 
Date of defense: 
25 January 2005 
Thesis directors: 
Giovanni Angiulli (Researcher, Università di Reggio Cal.)


Mario Versaci (Associate professor, Università di Reggio Cal.)

Note. In Italy, the laurea was the main academic degree until the reforms following the Bologna process. A laurea was, actually, a long university degree (5 years for engineers), which concluded with the presentation of a thesis (usually based on experimental work) in front of a jury.
