Submission + - Evolution of National Nobel Prize Shares (arxiv.org)

wen1454 writes: Juergen Schmidhuber "analyze[s] the evolution of cumulative national shares of Nobel Prizes since 1901, properly taking into account that most prizes were divided among several laureates." Basically he finds that Germany lead from 1901 to 1956, and the US has lead since 1976. Between 1956 and 1976 the leader depends on the criteria used (science prizes vs. all prizes and citizenship at birth vs. citizenship at time of award).
