About

I recently discovered that a late friend of mine was actually my great grandfather in the mathematical family tree, and he was a student of Bartel Leendert van der Waerden. This made van der Waerden my mathematical great great grandfather. I was amused but in the meantime also embarassed, as my knowledge in abstract algebra was (and still is, to be frank) so pedestrian.
