Aloizio Macedo


I am a PhD in Mathematics at UFRJ (Universidade Federal do Rio de Janeiro) currently working at traffic control as an applied mathematician. You can see my webpage on IM-UFRJ here.

My area of study in my DSc and MSc was Geometry and Topology. Specifically, I studied the free loop space of globally symmetric spaces and its homology in the specific case of CROSS's (Compact Rank One Symmetric Spaces) in my MSc. In my DSc, I studied the symmetric Hofer-Zehnder capacity (defined in symmetric symplectic manifolds, which are essentially symplectic manifolds equiped with an anti-symplectic involution with non empty fixed-point set) and arrived at results related to its finiteness under specific conditions.

My main mathematical interests reside in the following areas:

  • Topology
  • Geometry
  • Analysis
  • Set Theory
  • Foundations of Mathematics
  • Algebra
  • Functional Analysis
  • Measure Theory

I also like music, and I'm a huge fan of guitarist John Frusciante.

I have a blog, on which I post something every once in a millennium:

I have a Real Analysis book in development (mostly done), which you can see here (I've been adding some things, so the last sections are still incomplete).
