My Erdös Number
What is an Erdös Number? It is the number of "hops" needed
to connect the author of a paper with the prolific late mathematician
Paul Erdös. An author's Erdös number is 1 if they have coauthored a
paper with Erdös, it is 2 if they have not coauthored with
Erdös, but they have coauthored a paper with someone who has
coauthored a paper with Erdös, etc. To learn more about
Erdös numbers, check out the Erdös Number Project.
