Mathematics Genealogy

I’m going to entering into the graduate program at PSU next year, and I’ll very likely be studying under Steve Bleiler.  According to the Mathematical Genealogy website, that would make me a  mathematical descendant of Karl Weierstraß and then further Carl Gauß !

Because of the apprenticeship nature of PhD programs it’s rather easy to trace back from student to adviser into the annals of time.
