>>7638432 Isn't 24 like impossible to achieve unless you're publishing from the most remote region of China or something? My first paper put me at 4... Granted, it's lucky that my thesis advisor's advisor collaborated directly with Erdos, but for anyone who published their first paper in the last 10 years or so, their advisor or their advisor's advisor published roughly at the same time as Erdos and I can't imagine them being further than 6 or 7 away from Erdos if they published in English, maybe 10 at the most if they published in another language.
I'm going to assume that your Erdos number is actually infinite because you just haven't published shit.
>>7639583 You can't get 1, obviously, but I'm guessing there are still people with Erdos number 1 that are publishing (any young (then) mathematician that he collaborated with at the end of his career). If so, 2, if not, 3.
