Personal Information


Short Bio

I was born on December 23rd, 1966 , in Imperia (Liguria, Italia), on the Tyrrhenian sea, near the bordeline with France. I lived and studied there until I was eighteen.
In November 1985 I went to Genoa (Genova), where I attended the University.  I earned my degree on November 23rd, 1989 , defending a Master thesis in Computational Number Theory [D1] (in Italian). About a year later I moved to Turin (Torino), for my Ph.D. studies under the direction of Alberto Perelli, and I successfully defended my Doctoral thesis [D2] (in Italian) in Rome in January 27th, 1996.
Then I had several grants from the C.N.R. and  a postdoctoral grant by the University of Genova. In 1998 I won a competition for a position as Assistant Professor (Ricercatore) in Padua (Padova), officially in the subject of Mathematical Analysis, since Number Theory, as such, is unknown to the Italian legislator. I moved there soon afterwards.
Starting from 2004 I am one of the participants of the Erasmus Mundus Master program ALgebra, Geometry And Number Theory (ALGANT) by the Universities of Bordeaux, Leiden, Paris Sud (Paris 11) and Padova, see http://lauree.math.unipd.it/algant/ .
In 2004 I wrote, jointly with my colleague and friend Alessandro Zaccagnini, a book on Cryptography:
A. Languasco, A. Zaccagnini - Introduzione alla Crittografia - Ulrico Hoepli Editore, 2004 (Italian).
In June 2006 I won a competition for the habilitation (idoneità) as Associate Professor in Mathematical Analysis and in October 2006 I was hired as such from the Faculty of Statistical Sciences, University of Padova. Some years ago V.Masotti and L.Accomazzi interviewed me in their radio program "Il sommergibile".

Translation of foreign books

Several years ago I (together with A. Centomo, M. Garuti, E. Gregorio, F. Mantese, A. Tonolo) translated the book "Elementary Linear Algebra" by W. Nicholson.
