I am interested in formulas (mainly algebraic)
that give us interesting insights to geometry.

My professional activity, since 2000, is related to IMPANGA

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."
