Erdős Number

Out of curiosity I did some research to find out if I actually have a finite Erdős number. It turns out that I do, and much to my surprise my Erdős number is no greater than 4. This is smaller even than the mean of 4.65 and median of 5 as determined by the Erdős Number Project on the basis of the American Mathematical Society’s Mathematical Reviews database. The following list shows the four journal papers that link me to Erdős Pál:

  1. Erdős, P., Shapiro, H. S., Shields, A. L., 1965, Michigan Math. J., 12, 169 (Project Euclid)
  2. Tegmark, M. E., Shapiro, H. S., 1994, Phys. Rev. E, 50, 2538 (ADS)
  3. de Oliveira-Costa, A., Tegmark, M. E., Devlin, M. J., Haffner, L. M., Herbig, T., Miller, A. D., Page, L. A., Reynolds, R. J., Tufte, S. L., 2000, ApJ, 542, L5 (ADS)
  4. Fox, A. J., Wakker, B. P., Barger, K. A., Hernandez, A. K., Richter, P., Lehner, N., Bland-Hawthorn, J., Charlton, J. C., Westmeier, T., Thom, C., Tumlinson, J., Misawa, T., Howk, J. C., Haffner, L. M., Ely, J., Rodriguez-Hidalgo, P., Kumari, N., 2014, ApJ, 787, 147 (ADS)
