I was a child prodigy...discovered negative numbers at age 4 and had proved a significant result in number theory by age 18.
I was considered to be the world's best traveled mathematician, having never held a university position...just traveled around the world spending a few days at different mathematician's homes at each stop.
I am perhaps one of the most prolific of the 20th century mathematicians, having published more than 1500 papers and having more than 400 coauthors.
I invented the "Book" which is God's list of all of the most elegant proofs in mathematics.
Everyone wants to be associated with me through their **** number, which is a measure of the distance between a mathematician and myself in terms of a chain of coauthorships.
