“Because Claude Mellanier is a fraud who fed off the analyses of Willis Linsay, and mine, repackaged them, dumbed them down, and passed them off as its own.”
   — Professor Wotan Ulm on Claude Mellanier

Claude Mellanier is an academic from Princeton who also won a Nobel prize. He created the Mellanier sequence diagram, basically a reprentation of the Long Earth as a tangled ball of string.[1]

The Long Mars

He is mentionned by Sally Linsay when she was discussing with her father and Frank Wood, aboard the Galileo, about the conservation of energy between the Earths, even if Willis thinks he is a fraud.[2]

Professor Wotan Ulm, who also thinks he is a fraud, mentions him again when discussing about the soft places on TV.[1]
