Hi. I'm Eric Schulman.

I wrote a paper with Alexei Filippenko, who wrote a paper with John Bahcall, who wrote a paper with Sheldon Glashow, who wrote a paper with Daniel Kleitman, who wrote a paper with Paul Erdős. This means I have an Erdős number of no more than 5.

Paul Erdős links to Antisemitism, which links to Scholarly method, which links to Academic publishing, which links to Eric Schulman, giving me a Wiki-Erdős number of no more than 4. Kevin Bacon links to Actor, which links to Celebrity, which links to Eric Schulman, giving me a Wiki-Bacon number of no more than 3.
