Alternate Genealogy

Naturally, genealogies are often not accurately known due to the ambiguity of historical records and how they are constructed. For instance, a genealogy can flow through the training of students, or through that of postdoctoral or research scientists as on this page. An alternate genealogy for the Multiphysics Research Group follows.
