My Mathematical Forefathers

From time to time, I look at the Mathematics Genealogy Project, and search for my own mathematical tree. I was happy to note that I am a direct descendant of Gauss and of Leibnitz. What I noticed today, was that I am a mathematical cousin of Saroj Malik, my teacher in Hindu College, who taught me abstract algebra and elementary number theory. We branch out at Gauss.

Here is the complete list of my mathematical forefathers.

  • Friedrich Leibnitz
  • Jakob Thomasius
  • Otto Mencke
  • Johann Christoph Wichmannshausen
  • Christian August Hausen
  • Abraham Gotthelf Kästner
  • Johann Friedrich Pfaff
  • Carl Friedrich Gauß
  • Christoph Gudermann
  • Karl Theodor Wilhelm Weierstraß
  • Leo Königsberger
  • Georg Alexander Pick
  • Charles Loewner
  • Adriano Mario Garsia
  • Stephen Carl Milne
  • Gaurav Bhatnagar
