  • Just for fun: a few "collaboration distance numbers": the most famous is the Erdős number, which is defined as: an author must co-write a research paper with an author with a finite Erdős number. Paul Erdős has an Erdős number of zero. If k is the lowest Erdős number of any coauthor, then ones number is k + 1.

  • By this definition I have:
  • Erdős number 6
  • Sagdeev number 2
  • Arno'ld and Ginzburg numbers 3
  • Landau, Kolmogorov, Sobolev and Zel'dovich numbers 4
  • Hawking, Penrose, Sedov, Kompaneets, Mandelbrot, Serge Lang, Gross and Gell-Mann numbers 5
  • John von Neumann, Courant, Weil, Schwartz, Dieudonne, Perelman, Feynman, Fermi, Chandrasekhar, Weinberg, Salam, Glashow, Biermann, Hoyle numbers 6
  • Einstein, Hilbert, Heisenberg, Schrödinger, Pauli, Dirac, de Broglie, Born, Bethe numbers 7
  • Riemann number 8
