Jean Pierre Gazeau is professor of Physics at the University Diderot Paris 7, France, and a member of the "Astroparticles and Cosmology" Laboratory (CNRS, UMR 7164). Having obtained his academic degrees from Sorbonne University and Pierre–and–Marie Curie University (Paris 6), he spent most of his academic career in Paris and, as invited professor and researcher, in many other places, among them UCLA, Louvain, Montreal, Prague, Newcastle, Rio de Janeiro and Sao Paulo. Professor Gazeau has authored more than 150 scientific publications in Theoretical and Mathematical Physics, mostly devoted to group theoretical methods in physics, coherent states, quantization methods, and number theory for aperiodic systems.
