Dear Collegue,


to the 3rd Alterman event, July 23-27, 2018, at the Politecnico di Milano University, Milano, Italy.

The 2018 Alterman Conference & School is a remarkable opportunity to present the latest original advancement in the fields of Clifford Algebra and Kähler Calculus applied to advanced problem computer modeling and simulation. All of us who will take part in it are fortunate to have the opportunity to meet the mathematical talent that will honor us with their presence.

When I started to think about having these events, I could not have imagined in my wildest dreams that members of the top mathematics departments of France, and thus of the world, would lend us some of their reputation with their participation. Also to be noted is that, after starting in Brasov (Romania, 2016) and following with Sofia (2017), Manipal (India) is already preparing the 4th Alterman event for the summer of 2019.

Without Élie J. Cartan’s legacy, there would not have been Kaehler metrics/manifolds, Kaehler calculus and quantum mechanics, and Cartan-Kaehler theory of exterior systems (read systems of ordinary and partial differential equations). It must be the reason why those notable mathematicians immediately accepted to lend their support to this event. As a result, the Alterman 2018 meeting has a French flavor. It is unfortunate that the German mathematics community has not yet resonated with the promotion of the Kaehler calculus.

Cartan-Kaehler mathematics is the apex of a mathematical tradition that started with Leibnitz and grew, not exclusively but predominantly, in the German 19th century mathematical garden, under gardeners like Gauss, Grasmann, Riemann, F. Klein … (a dozen names easily follow). And almost all that and much more was put together and generalized by E. Cartan.

Finally, a little bit of physics. Millisecond, defined: the time that took Eric Alterman to lend support to my proposal to honor his parents with these events. Thanks Eric. One day you will have the opportunity to tell us about your father’s support of mathematics and science.

Best regards,

Jose G. Vargas, on behalf of the organizers

The third Summer School and Conference on Geometric Algebra and Kähler Calculus is sponsored by Eric Alterman and will take place at the historical campus of Politecnico di Milano University, jointly organized by the Department of Electronics, Information and Bioengineering and the Department of Mathematics, Politecnico di Milano University (Italy).

If you wish to present a talk, please send us your draft full paper. An electronic copy of papers in PDF format in English should be submitted via EasyChair by March 18, 2018 with detailed information of author(s). Full papers should be maximum 20 pages in length and formatted according to the conference template, at the followinglink. More detailed information can be found at the 2018 ACSGAKC official website at the following address:


All full papers must be original and not simultaneously submitted to another journal or conference. The 2018 ACSGAKC conference will be structured to facilitate discussion of new research and applied results in relevant fields and it will focus but not limited to the topics listed at this address.  

We look forward to seeing you in Milano in July 2018 for this influential event!

Best regards,

Prof. Rodolfo A. Fiorini, Ph.D., 2018 ACSGAKC Chairman, Politecnico di Milano University, Italy
