I have just arranged to join Shamil Sunyaev's lab for a rotation in January. In a few weeks I will have more information about what project I will be working on.

Relatedly: some of you may remember that last summer I spent some time trying to calculate my Erdös Number. I have finally come up with a number, which is 8. The path goes:

  1. Erik Zuiderweg
  2. Gerhard Wagner
  3. Eirik Flekkøy
  4. Gianni de Fabritiis
  5. Francesco Mainardi
  6. Hari Srivastava
  7. Joel Brenner
  8. Paul Erdös

Shamil Sunyaev, though, has an Erdös number of only 3, through Eugene Koonin and Lazlo Szekely. So if I publish with him, my Erdös number would be cut in half.

You know, one must be concerned about these things.
