### Konstantin Igudesman and his academic forefathers
The following information (incipient from Sergei P. Finikov)
is an excerpt from the material that can be
found at the homepage of **The Mathematics
Genealogy Project.** The intent of this project is to compile
information about ALL the mathematicians of the world. By searching,
e.g., for Last Name "Finikov" at **http://genealogy.math.ndsu.nodak.edu/html/search.shtml#"**
one can find Finikov's entry. By clicking on Finikov's name (almost) all his Ph.D.
students are listed alphabetically, and his Ph.D. advisor (Dmitri Egorov)
is displayed. By clicking on "Dmitri Egorov" one can find his
advisor (Nicolai Bugaev) and so on. The list of doctoral father, doctoral
grandfather, doctoral great grandfather, etc. below has been collected
from the wonderful data repository of the Mathematics Genealogy Project.
