Mini Genealogy


This is my mathematical genealogy as construed by the Mathematics Genealogy Project. The image to the right is a schematic version of the full genealogy (also available in a PDF version). Each name in the detailed view is a clickable link to that person’s MGP page. For more, read the explanation for non-mathematicians.


Here are some translations I’ve made of papers not written in English. I don’t actually speak French or German, so I make no guarantees as to the accuracy of these translations.
