"The programmer, like the poet, works only
slightly removed from pure thought-stuff. He
builds castles in the air, from air, creating by
exertion of the imagination."

My Erdös Number

My Erdös number is at most 3.

Here’s how: me \rightarrow Charles E. Hughes \rightarrow Stanley M. Selkow \rightarrow Paul Erdös

In other words. . .
. . . I published with someone
. . . . . . who published with someone
. . . . . . . . . who published a paper with Paul Erdös.

Yes, many people have their own Erdös number, but it was still fun finding mine!
Here’s one way I could lower my Erdös number.
