That made me think of how I fit into the world of mathematics. I know I had calculated my ErdÅ‘s number at one point, but I couldn’t find it anymore. I myself haven’t authored any mathematics papers, of course, but there are computer scientists who bridge that gap.
So I used a list of ErdÅ‘s collaborators, which I confirmed using the MathSciNet tool. Then I used a similar tool for computer scientists from csauthors.net.
It turns out my ErdÅ‘s numbers is at most 4 (I didn’t check all of ErdÅ‘s’ collaborators, so it could be lower, although I find that unlikely).
Here’s the collaboration chain:
Small, small world.
Turns out I didn’t have to do any of this search manually. My author page on csauthors.net already states:
Dijkstra number of four.
ErdÅ‘s number of four.
