  • La materia dei sogniby Roberto Piazza

    Springer 2010; US$ 29.95

    Dall?aria che respiriamo ai cibi di cui ci nutriamo, dai vestiti che indossiamo ai detersivi con cui li laviamo, dai colori con cui dipingiamo agli schermi su cui li guardiamo, la nostra realtÓ quotidiana brulica di cose troppo piccole per essere viste, ma pur sempre enormi rispetto ai mattoni di cui Ŕ fatto il mondo, gli atomi e le molecole. Sfruttando... more...

  • Soft Matterby Roberto Piazza

    Springer 2011; US$ 24.95

    Roberto Piazza says: 'Physics should be made simple enough to be amusing, but not so trivial as to spoil the fun'. This is exactly the approach of this book in making the science of 'soft matter' relevant to everyday life - things such as the food we eat, the plastic we use, the concrete we build with, the cells we are made of. more...

  • Note di fisica statisticaby Roberto Piazza

    Springer 2011; US$ 29.95

    Le applicazioni tecnologiche innovative (nanotecnologie, microfluidica, sviluppo di processi chimici ecosostenibili, bioingegneria e formulazione di farmaci innovativi) richiedono sempre più un'adeguata conoscenza dei processi fisici a livello microscopico e del comportamento termico e strutturale di materiali avanzati. La conoscenza dei principi... more...

  • Financial innovation and Risk, the Role of Informationby Roberto Piazza

    International Monetary Fund 2010; US$ 9.00

    Financial innovation has increased diversification opportunities and lowered investment costs, but has not reduced the relative cost of active (informed) investment strategies relative to passive (less informed) strategies. What are the consequences? I study an economy with linear production technologies, some more risky than others. Investors can... more...

  • Growth and Crisis, Unavoidable Connection?by Roberto Piazza

    International Monetary Fund 2010; US$ 9.00

    In emerging economies periods of rapid growth and large capital inflows can be followed by sudden stops and financial crises. I show that, in the presence of financial markets imperfections, a simple modification of a neoclassical growth model can account for these facts. I study a growth model for a small open economy where decreasing marginal returns... more...

  • Leadership Contestability, Monopolistic Rents and Growthby Roberto Piazza

    International Monetary Fund 2011; US$ 9.00

    I construct an endogenous growth model where R&D is carried out at the industry level in a game of innovation between leaders and followers. Innovation costs for followers are assumed to increase with the technological lag from leaders. We obtain three results that contrast with standard Schumpeterian models, such as Aghion and Howitt (1992). First,... more...
