mathgenealogy: Discover your (academic) ancestors!

[ gpl, program, web ] [ Propose Tags ]

A command line program for extracting data from the Mathematics Genealogy Project (http://genealogy.math.ndsu.nodak.edu/index.php). Note that this database also contains many entries of computer scientists.

Lookup your entry at http://genealogy.math.ndsu.nodak.edu/index.php and then use that URL as a command line argument. For example, if Carl Gauss wanted to explore his academic ancestors, he would type

mathgenealogy http://genealogy.math.ndsu.nodak.edu/id.php?id=18231

which produces the directed acyclic graph http://dl.dropbox.com/u/22490968/genealogy_of_gauss.svg. See

mathgenealogy --help

for the complete list of options. Requires the dot program, which is part of the GraphViz package (version 2.28.0 or later!) to run.

Feedback and bug reports are appreciated!
