Thesis, articles and publications
I entered in thesis in September 97 to the
Fourier Institute of Grenoble, with Christine
My defence took place on January 28, 2000. Subject: The configuration
space integral for links and tangles in R^3.
It comprises an introduction in French
(non-rigourous, about the classical CS theory for links in R^3 and its
an article in English. For
the publication, I was asked to divide it again, and the revised first
part is published
in the AGT electronic Journal and put as a replacement of math.GT/0005085.
I recently wrote an article which shows the three
results announced in my thesis article (result of more precise rationality,
criterion for the diagrams of nonempty image interior (now included in
the revised version published above), cancellation of the anomaly in degree
5 using program maple).

I wrote an article in French entitled "Une nouvelle introduction à
la physique mathématique" (="a new introduction to mathematical
physics"), which has been published in "Lucrarile seminarului de creativitate
matematica" vol.10, 2001, 175-195 (ISSN 1224-3310).
