HEPNames Family Trees

You may also want the standard HEPNames help pages

To see a family tree (a list of students, and their students, and their student's students...) in HEPNames do the following:

  1. Do a normal search for the advisor's name at the HEPNames search page
    You'll see a result like the following:

    Return to Search Page     |    Format:   Standard   Family Tree   

    Click on the Family Tree link to display the genealogy of this physicist
  2. You can also click on the PhD advisor link with in a record in the Family Tree mode, and this will re-center the tree on this advisor, moving back a level if necessary.
  3. Bear in mind that the links between student and advisor rely on information that we have been given by users, and name variations and other errors may cause incorrect information to display. The records are certainly incomplete, as they only list students and advisors who are also in HEPNames. As such, these should be considered handy and fun lists, but are not meant to be an official record.
  4. To correct information, or submit comments, send email to the SPIRES HEPNames Database Administrator at hepnames@slac.stanford.edu. Alternatively, to add an advisor, just click the update button by the student's name.
  5. Thanks to Alejandro Rivero who suggested this useful and fun tool. Please feel free to bug us by email if you have an idea for a new SPIRES feature. We can't implement them all, but they are often great suggestions.

SPIRES HEP was a joint project of SLAC, DESY & FNAL as well as the worldwide HEP community.
It was superseeded by INSPIRE
