 My Erdös number is 2
 Not to be confused with the conventional
terms, in terms of collaboration distance,
my Gauss number is 6,
my Hilbert number is 5, not 2\sqrt(2),
my SS Chern number is 4,
my Einstein number is also 4, but
my Ladyzhenskaya number is 2,
my Euler number is inf (whose isn't?)
my (enter your name) number is to be computed
