I defended my PhD
on Sept. 15th 2006. The title is "Multiscales aspects of information : from physics to biology

: it covers
biology, complexity and cognition. I'm aiming at a theoretical
approach of the biological organization and
biological function, in terms of information, critical
transitions, and symmetries. I investigate scaling aspects of
information in biology. A better theoretical characterization of
underling probability distributions is needed when facing scale
coupling phenomena. I also investigate scaling laws in biology
(metabolism scales as a 3/4 power law of adult mass, and characteristic
times scale as a 1/4 power law of adult mass).
