Peter Cameron's coauthors

Here is a list of people with whom I have written or edited a book or paper. Nine of them are included in the pseudonym "W. E. Opencomb" under which the paper "On the intricacy of combinatorial construction problems" Discrete Math. 50 (1984), 71-97, was written; for six of the nine, this is my only joint work with them.

Colleagues on the staff at Queen Mary (now or formerly) are starred, and my present or former students are double-starred.

The list includes those for which the work has been published or accepted for publication. The total reached 150 on 17 July 2012. Details of publications and articles in press can be found here, while a list of joint papers by coauthor is here.

Here are my coauthors of papers submitted or in preparation who are not in the above list:
  • S. Akbari
  • J. André
  • P. Bonnizoni
  • G. Della Vedova
  • B. Fairbairn
  • G. B. Khosrovshahi
  • A. Leporati
  • G. Mauri
  • V. Yildiz

My Erdős number is 1. See the homepage of the Erdős Number Project for more information.

The rules for Erdős number require that the collaboration involves writing a research publication; editing, writing expository articles, or writing obituaries do not count. On this basis, I believe that all my co-authors have collaborations with me that qualify except possibly for L. W. Beineke, C. Budd, S. Cooter, J. W. P. Hirschfeld, D. Spiegelhalter, D. B. West and R. J. Wilson. (The papers with F. Buekenhout and R. Connelly, though mostly expository, do include new research.) The Erdős numbers of four of these people (Beineke, Hirschfeld, West and Wilson) are not affected; their "Cameron numbers" (computed by the Erdős number rules) are 3, 2, 2 and 2 respectively (i.e. a shortest path passes through Paul Erdős in each case). Chris Budd has Erdős number 4 and David Spiegelhalter 3; both have "Cameron number" 4. Stephen Cooter is not a mathematician.
