The scientific activity was related to the geometry of the spaces set on the algebra. The theory of the application of bimetric systems to different geometric problems and the theory of spaces on algebra, the alternatives have established the affinity, projective and non-Euclidean spaces on algebraic, real, complex and double matrices, have applied the properties of these spaces and applied them to true geometry.

There has been great service in the development of mathematical teaching as a science, the emergence and development of mathematical terminology.
