I am mainly (but not only) interested in algebraic formulas which tell us something interesting about
geometry.  My professional activity, since 2000, is related to IMPANGA -

pdf of the printed version

(In the reference [Z], the last part of the webpage changed to: \quotes.html
)

About the front page: the picture there shows some detail of my garden. I share the opinion
of Hermann Fuerst von Pueckler-Muskau (
1785-1871), who once said:
''Wer mich ganz kennenlernen will, muss meinen Garten kennen, denn
  mein Garten is mein  Herz."
