More information about these lists can be found in the SIGACT News article entitled The Theoretic Center of Computer Science, which is investigating trends in the area of computer science from various perspectives in a not too serious way. In particular, above lists relate to a part talking about author centrality in a co-author graph taken from DBLP. Consequently, they express centrality rather than quality. Moreover, they are questionable in various points, ranging from the underlying centrality measure to technical issues such as name ambigiuties.
