Lucian Miti Ionescu is a mathematics professor at Illinois State University, with an established record of mathematical publications at international level. Recommendations from Saunders Mac Lane, encouragements from Yu. I. Manin, and repeated invitations to visit the prestigious Institute des Hautes Etudes Scientifique, are only a few confirmations of a solid scientific career, yet in the pursuit of a teenager's dream: understanding gravity together with the other fundamental forces.
With a mathematical-physics and computer science background, the author proposes a daring inter-disciplinary research program, the Digital World Theory project. Staring from a new fundamental equivalence principle between energy-matter and (quantum) entropy / information ¨C symmetry, the author introduces new mathematical structures to model space-time-matter-entropy on a common foundation as quantum information, in order to derive a framework for all fundamental interactions, and including Quantum Gravity.
The author is also founder of VIREQUEST, a virtual institute dedicated to research in Quantum Informatics.
