MY MATHEMATICAL GENEALOGY TREE
In modern mathematics each mathematician begins his career
as a graduate student of a PhD thesis advisor.
Thus one can draw mathematical "family trees".
Below is my own lineage, found using the
Mathematics Genealogy Project.
It is supplemented by links to biographies from the
MacTutor History of Mathematics Archive.
Of course, in older times the
advisor/advisee relationship was not so
formal as it is nowadays.
Thus, some of the earlier links shown here
reflect a mentor/student circumstance that is somewhat different
than the more recent links.
