Erdős number

  • I was fortunate to be advised by super-cool Prof. Prasad Tetali [Regents' Professor, School of Mathematics and Computer Science, Georgia Tech, Atlanta, USA]. Thanks to Prasad, I obtained an Erdős number of 2.
    Paul Erdős -> Prasad Tetali -> Arindam Khan.

  • Collaborative nature of science means smaller collaboration distances with other great scientists too.
    Einstein number 4: Albert Einstein -> Ernst Gabor Straus -> Laszlo Lovasz -> Prasad Tetali -> Arindam Khan
    Knuth number 3: Donald Knuth -> Fan Chung -> Prasad Tetali -> Arindam Khan
    Tao number 3: Terry Tao -> Van Ha Vu -> Prasad Tetali -> Arindam Khan
