Dave Bayer is an American mathematician. He is a professor of mathematics at Barnard College, Columbia University. He was math consultant for the film A Beautiful Mind, and also acted in it as one of the "Pen Ceremony" professors. He is also one of few people to have both an Erdős number and a Bacon number. The sum of his Bacon and Erdős numbers (or Erdős-Bacon number) is 4 or 5, depending on whether one counts a technical report later published in a book without the benefit of peer review. He was educated at Swarthmore College as an undergraduate and earned a Ph.D. at Harvard University in 1982.
