    computational level.

              * the reconstruction of his scientific and intellectual career;
              * the influence of his works on the mathematical
              * community in the XVIth and XVIIth centuries.

              * The challenge of the critical edition of scientific
              * writings in the age of computers and Internet.

              * The use of computational tools and languages for
              * solving philological and interpretative problems.
