I am the 10-th generation academic descendant of Carl Friedrich Gauß(Gauss)

Yes, that Gauss, the Gauss on your high school text book. But now the world center of science has migrated from Switzerland, Germany, France and Britain to a new place, United States. I do not write papers in Latin, French or German. I use a language with less culture, which is called the American English. And today I know that mathematicians all over the world are generally descendants of Gauss and Euler. These two groups of people are related to two legend universities, Universität Berlin and École Polytechnique. This reminds me that a newly-founded university can become a first-tie one by its good tradition and academic environment. Of course, the investment from government and freedom on academics are very important. Investing education, no country doesn't benefit from it.

Ok, here is the story:
  • Carl Friedrich Gauß obtained his Ph.D. degree at Universität Helmstedt in 1799.
  • He taught in Georg-August-Universität Göttingen and had a student called Christoph Gudermann who obtained Ph.D. degree in 1841.
  • Christoph Gudermann taught in Universität Königsberg and had a student called Karl Theodor Wilhelm Weierstraß(Weierstrass) who obtained Honorary degree in 1854.
  • Karl Theodor Wilhelm Weierstraß taught in Universität Berlin and had a student called Lazarus Immanuel Fuchs who obtained Dr.Phil. degree in 1858.
  • Lazarus Immanuel Fuchs taught in Universität Berlin and had a student called Issai Schur who obtained Dr. phil. degree in 1901.
  • Issai Schur taught in Universität Berlin and had a student called Richard Rado who obtained Ph.D. degree from Universität Berlin and Cambridge University in 1933 and 1935 respectively. His supervisors in Cambidge University is Godfrey Harold Hardy.
  • Richard Rago taught in University of London and had a student called Kenneth A. H. Gravett who obtained Ph.D. degree in 1955.
  • Kenneth A. H. Gravett taught in University of Oxford and had a student called John Newsome Crossley who obtained D. Phil. degree in 1963.
  • John Newsome Crossley teaches in Monash University and had a student called Roland Hock Chuan Yap who obtained Ph.D. degree in 1995.
  • Roland Hock Chuan Yap teaches in National University of Singapore and had a student called Yuan Lin Zhang who obtained Ph.D. degree in 2003.
  • Yuan Lin Zhang teaches in Texas Tech University and has a student called Forrest Sheng Bao who are expected to have his Ph.D. degree in 2012.

我是高斯第10代传人

by Forrest Sheng Bao http://fsbao.net

是的,就是那个高斯,那个你在高中数学课本上看到的高斯。但是世界的科学中心已经从瑞士,德国,法国和英国转移到一个新地方,叫做合众国。我不会用拉丁 文,法语或者德语来写论文。我使用一种没有文化的语言,叫做美式英语。今天我才知道,全世界的数学家基本都是高斯和欧拉的传人。这2群人,都同2个传奇的 后起之秀大学联系在一起,柏林大学(Universität Berlin)和巴黎理工(École Polytechnique)。这带给我一种启发,一个后起大学可以通过建立优秀的传统和风气而成为世界一流大学。当然,国家对大学的财政投入和对学术自 由的宽容,是造就世界ZB大学的一个重要条件。投资教育,从没有国家在此吃亏。

这个树就是:
