FLORENTIN SMARANDACHE (3)

 

1, 2, 3, 4

 

"MetaHistory" (1993) is a theatrical trilogy against the totalitarism again, with dramas that experiment towards a total theatre: "Formation of the New Man", "An Upside - Down World", "The Country of the Animals".  The last drama, that pioneers no dialogue on the stage, was awarded at the International Theatrical Festival of Casablanca (1995). 
"Trickster's Famous Deeds" (1994, auto-translated into English 2000), theatrical trilogy for children, mixes the Romanian folk tradition with modern and SF situations. 

His first novel is called "NonNovel" (1993) and satirizes the dictatorship in a gloomy way, by various styles and artifice within one same style.

"Faulty Writings" (1997) is a collection of short stories and prose within paradoxism, bringing hybrid elements from rebus and science into literature.

His experimental albums "Outer-Art" (Vol. I, 2000 & Vol. II: The Worst Possible Art in the World!, 2003) comprises over-paintings, non-paintings, anti-drawings, super-photos, foreseen with a manifesto: "Ultra-Modernism?" and "Anti-manifesto" [ http://www.gallup.unm.edu/~smarandache/a/outer-art.htm ].
Art was for Dr. Smarandache a hobby.  He did:
- graphic arts for his published volumes of verse: "Anti-chambres/ Anti-poesies/ Bizarreries" (mechanical drawings), "NonPoems" (paradoxist drawings), "Dark Snow" & "Circles of light" (covers);
- paradoxist collages for the "Anthology of the Paradoxist Literary Movement", by J. -M. Levenard, I. Rotaru, A. Skemer;
- covers and illustrations of books, published by "Dorul" Publ. Hse., Aalborg, Denmark;
- illustrations in the journal: "Dorul" (Aalborg, Denmark).
Many of his art works are held in "The Florentin Smarandache Papers" Special Collections at the Arizona State University, Tempe, and Texas State University, Austin (USA), also in the National Archives of Valcea and Romanian Literary Museum (Romania), and in the Musee de Bergerac (France).

Nine books were published that analyze his literary creation, among them: "Paradoxism's Aesthetics" by Titu Popescu (1995), and "Paradoxism and Postmodernism" by Ion Soare (2000).
In 1999 he was proposed for the Nobel Prize in Literature.   Free literary books can be downloaded from the site:  http://www.gallup.unm.edu/~smarandache/eBooksLiterature.htm

In mathematics there are several entries named Smarandache Functions, Sequences, Constants, and Paradoxes in international journals and encyclopedias.  He generalized the fuzzy, intuitive, paraconsistent, multi-valent, dialetheist logics to the 'neutrosophic logic' (also called "Smarandache Logic" in the Denis Howe's Dictionary of Computing, England) and, similarly, he generalized the fuzzy set to the 'neutrosophic set' (and its derivatives: 'paraconsistent set', 'intuitionistic set', 'dialethist set', 'paradoxist set', 'tautological set').

Also, he proposed an extension of the classical probability and the imprecise probability to the 'neutrosophic probability', that he defined as a tridimensional vector whose components are real subsets of the non-standard interval ]-0, 1+[.
He's organizing the 'First International Conference on Neutrosophics' at the University of New Mexico, 1-3 December 2001

[ http://www.gallup.unm.edu/~smarandache/FirstNeutConf.htm ].
He published over 80 scientific notes and articles.
Since 2002, together with Dr. Jean Dezert from Office National de Recherches Aeronautiques in Paris, worked in information fusion and generalized the Dempster-Shafer Theory to a new theory of plausible and paradoxist fusion (Dezert-Smarandache Theory): http://www.gallup.unm.edu/~smarandache/DSmT.htm.

In physics he proposed the hypothesis that 'there is no speed barrier in universe' and even more: that the 'speed may be infinite' (called Smarandache Hypothesis in some  Physics Dictionaries), and quantum paradoxes

[ http://www.geocities.com/m_l_perez/QuantumPhysics.html ].

In philosophy he introduced the 'neutrosophy', as a generalization of Hegel's dialectic, which is the basement of his researches in mathematics and economics, such as 'neutrosophic logic', 'neutrosophic set', 'neutrosophic probability', 'neutrosophic statistics'.

Other contributions he had in psychology 

[ http://www.gallup.unm.edu/~smarandache/psychology.htm ],
 and in sociology [ http://www.gallup.unm.edu/~smarandache/sociology.htm ].
