We adopt the so-called occupation number representation, originally used in quantum mechanics and recently considered in the description of stock markets, in the analysis of the dynamics of love relations. We start with a simple model, involving two actors (Alice and Bob): in the linear case we obtain periodic dynamics, whereas in the nonlinear regime, either periodic or quasi-periodic solutions are found. Then we extend the model to a love triangle involving Alice, Bob, and a third actress… 
Matrix Computations for the Dynamics of Fermionic Systems
In a series of recent papers we have shown how the dynamical behavior of certain classical systems can be analyzed using operators evolving according to Heisenberg-like equations of motions. In
Modified models for love and their dynamical properties
In this work, we modify the present linear and nonlinear dynamic models of love between two individuals. For the linear system, we make the model more realistic by introducing external perturbation
On fermionic models of a closed ecosystem with application to bacterial populations
This paper deals with the application of operatorial techniques of quantum physics to a theoretical model of closed ecosystems. The model is built by using fermionic operators whose evolution is
An operatorial model for complex political system dynamics
This paper presents an operatorial model based on fermionic operators for the description of the dynamics of political parties affected by turncoat‐like behaviors. By observing the political
A phenomenological operator description of interactions between populations with applications to migration
We adopt an operatorial method based on the so-called creation, annihilation and number operators in the description of different systems in which two populations interact and move in a
Dynamics of Confined Crowd Modelled Using Fermionic Operators
An operatorial method based on fermionic operators is used to describe the dynamics of a crowd made of different kind of populations mutually interacting and moving in a two–dimensional bounded
An operatorial model for long-term survival of bacterial populations
This paper deals with the application of the operatorial techniques of quantum physics to model a closed ecosystem in a two-dimensional region. In particular, we consider a model with four

Laura and Petrarch: An Intriguing Case of Cyclical Love Dynamics
Three ordinary dierential equations are proposed to model the dynamics of love between Petrarch and Laura and show that the poet's emotions followed for about 20 years a quite regular cyclical pattern ranging from the extremes of ecstasy to despair.

This paper examines a sequence of dynamical models involving coupled ordinary differential equations describing the time-variation of the love or hate displayed by individuals in a romantic relationship that start with a linear system of two individuals and advance to love triangles and finally to include the effect of nonlinearities, which are shown to produce chaos.
A Quantum Approach to Stock Price Fluctuations
A simple quantum model explains the Levy-unstable distributions for individual stock returns observed by ref.[1]. The probability density function of the returns is written as the squared modulus of

An operatorial approach to stock markets
We propose and discuss some toy models of stock markets using the same operatorial approach adopted in quantum mechanics. Our models are suggested by the discrete nature of the number of shares and
Love Affairs and Differential Equations
The purpose of this note is to suggest an unusual approach to the teaching of some standard material about systems of coupled ordinary differential equations. The approach relates the mathematics to
