On this page you can find information about:

My research.

The courses and lectures I am involved.

Scientific publications.

I did my PhD with Peter
McClintock at Lancaster
University in England on *nonlinear dynamics*
and *stochastic processes.*
I became interested in *path
integrals, solid state,* *low temperature
physics, computers, *and *electronics.* There I worked on:

Thermal ratches with quasimonocromatic noise.

Prehistory problem for large fluctuations in noise-driven systems.

The Kramers problem for a multi-well potential.

Phase transition in a system driven by coloured noise.

Analogue simulations.

Then I got a postdoc position at Universiteit
Leiden in The Netherlands, and the office at CWI
with Ute Ebert. I did
research on *low temperature plasma physics*, and a bit on
*Brownian ratchet experiment on the surface of HeII*, *quantum
dissipative systems* and *quantum computing*. The papers I wrote there were about:

Patterns formation in electric discharges: streamers branching.

Analytical derivation of the critical turbulence for phytoplankton bloom development.

I have a position since 1-9-2001 at Universidad Rey Juan Carlos in Spain. I am working on and/or contemplating:

Plasma physics and electric discharges.

Turbulence in HeII.

Nanofluids and cone-jets.

Reaction diffusion equations.

Electromagnetic knots.

For current information you can visit the web of the EMFF research group.

Tomorrow...who knows?

Presently I teach first year Physics and Optics and Acoustic. All the information and notes about these undergraduate courses can be found here.

I am also giving a Physics conceptual course at the Universidad de Mayores.

For a list of papers follow this link.

A copy of the book *Electromagnetismo,
Circuitos y Semiconductores* edited in Spanish by the
Editorial Dykinson can be obtained here. This is an introductory book for a first course on Electromagnetism, Circuits and Semiconductors, written in collaboration with J.L. Trueba.

Also a draft copy of the book *Cómo es nuestro mundo: del átomo al cosmos.* edited in Spanish by the Editorial del Orto, Ediciones Clásicas, can be downloaded here. This is about the set of lectures I deliver for a general public since 2002 at the Universidad de Mayores, URJC.
