Paul Erdös (1913-1996) is one of the most prolific mathmeticians. He wrote about 1500 papers in his lifetime. He collaborated with over 500 people. As a tribute, his friends created the Erdös number.

Erdös himself has an Erdös number of 0. A co-author with Erdös has an Erdös number of 1, if you have written a paper with one of those co-authors you have an Erdös number of 2.

My Erdös number is 3 (unless anybody knows differently), via these papers.
