# Mathematics Genealogy Project

The **Mathematics Genealogy Project** (**MGP**) is a web-based database for the academic genealogy of mathematicians.[1][2][3] By 31 December 2020, it contained information on 263,562 mathematical scientists who contributed to research-level mathematics. For a typical mathematician, the project entry includes graduation year, thesis title (in its Mathematics Subject Classification), *alma mater*, doctoral advisor, and doctoral students.[1][4]
