Erdos-Bacon number

I have an Erdos number of one, from the paper ``On the normal behavior of the iterates of some arithmetic functions`` (Paul Erdos, Andrew Granville, Carl Pomerance and Claudia Spiro), which appeared in Analytic Number Theory (ed. B.C. Berndt, H.G. Diamond, H. Halberstam, A. Hildebrand), (Boston: Birkhauser), 1990, 165-204.

I have a Bacon number of three:

Kevin Bacon appeared in the movie ``JFK'' with Martin Sheen in 1991.

Martin Sheen appeared in ``Loophole'' with my sister, Jennifer Granville, in 1981.

Jennifer Granville and I will appear together in "MSI'' (2019), a trailer for which can be found at Since this has not yet happened, in the meantime we have co-authored, ``Writing and performing mathematics as metaphor'' together with Michael Spencer), which appeared in Art in the Life of Mathematicians, American Mathematical Society (2015), 112-137.
