    Multiple eigenvalues and forum kill rates, kind like predicting in a Stan/Joe BB exchange the Joe BB survival rate, actually not too much like that at all with the kill rate approaching if not already at 1.0 – circulant matrices not withstanding.

    As much as I hate to say it, yes it does.   
     
    But then you might (or might not, as the case might be) want to get into a discussion of applied programmatic rigor and begin to address the question of whether or not even a normally rigorous program might occasionally become diluted and therefore academically adulterated via it’s ongoing linkage to one of the true giants in a particular field who’s well past his contributory prime, subsequently failing to apply requisite intellectual and analytical critique to the work of those under his tutelage.    
     
    While that might occur in some even closely related fields, it would certainly not have been the case with Operations Research because giants such as Charles W. Churchman (as a somewhat randomly picked example), even when getting on in years remained not only sharp as the proverbial tack but didn’t get lost in the typical rebuffing crankiness of some aging pioneering intellects. 
     
    Of course your logical counter to that would be to question the viability and appropriateness of a field-furthering pioneer’s habitually and unkindly suffering no fools versus habitually and kindly suffering fools, and I would suppose it entirely depends upon whether or not categorically you’d have had to have been suffered.
