My Academic Ancestors

Below is my academic ancestry, according to the Mathematics Genealogy Project. I enjoyed very much browsing through the pages of this project and tracing my academic ancestors back up to the 16th century. For some of of my academic ancestors Web links are provided below. (If you have a math background then you probably find my ancestry much more interesting and thrilling than a non-mathematician:)

My Erdös Number

My Erdös number is 3, as can be seen e.g. from the following publication sequence:

  1. N. Alon, P. Erdös, D.S. Gunderson and M. Molloy. A Ramsey-type problem and the Turan numbers. Journal of Graph Theory, Vol. 40, Issue 2, pp. 120-129, 2002.
  2. N. Alon, F. Fischer, A. Procaccia and M. Tennenholtz. Sum of us: Strategyproof selection from the selectors. Proc. of the 13th Conference on Theoretical Aspects of Rationality and Knowledge (TARK XIII), pp. 101-110, 2011.
  3. G. Weiss, M. Nickles, M. Rovatsos and F. Fischer. Specifying the intertwining of coordination and autonomy in agent-based systems. International Journal of Network and Computer Applications, Vol. 30(3), 1196-1215, 2007.
