The following files contain complete, ordered lists of the names of people who submitted papers to the Los Alamos E-print Archive between 1995 and 1999 (inclusive), in various subject categories, ranked by number of papers, number of collaborators, betweenness (a network measure of centrality), and closeness to other authors. If you click on one of these files you can then use your browser's "find" function to search for your own name, or indeed anyone else's. See if you rank higher than your advisor, your students, your officemate, your ex-wife, etc.
Within each list names are arranged in descending order of number of papers (or whatever). If several entries tie, they are given in reverse alphabetical order of surname and initials (for obscure reasons which you probably don't want to know about). In the case of average distance, only people who belong to the giant component are listed, otherwise it wouldn't be fair. Of course, this whole thing isn't fair, but I'm making the rules, and this is the way I did it.
|number of papers
|number of collaborators
|average distance to others
|High energy (lattice)
|High energy (phenomenology)
|High energy (theory)
In addition to these summary tables, the entire networks used in the
analyses are also available. Some of the smaller ones can be found on this page. The
others are larger – some of the files are over 1GB – so I can't
put them on this page. If you'd like to get hold of these data, please
email@example.com, and we'll
work something out.
