#### The "Dijkstra number"

The Dijkstra number describes the collaborative distance between an author and
Edsger W. Dijkstra.

In our dataset 88.8% of authors are connected to Edsger W. Dijkstra and the average Dijkstra number among them is 5.29.

These kind of number/metrics are quite famous and already well defined in other fields.
