Robert John Aumann, 2005 Winner of the Nobel Prize for Economics #general


Nick Landau <N.Landau@...>
 

I have just heard >from GerSig that Robert John Aumann has won the Nobel
Prize for Economics.

Given that this is a genealogy group a bit of a nachas is presumably
allowed.

We share a common greatgrandfather, Marcus Israel Landau - he is descended
from the first wife - and I am descended >from his second wife.
We are half-second cousins.

My father has just told me that when my maths lecturer uncle visited him a
few years ago in Israel Jonny Aumann's wife became exasperated that they
talked mathematics all evening!
