### Abstract

Using methods from statistical learning theory we compute the Vapnik-Chervonenkis dimension of full professors and students of the Eindhoven University of Technology. The results are surprising and disappointing. Furthermore, it is shown that during their study the students must have learned things on which professors have no knowledge at all. This leads to the mathematical proof of the existence of an additional group of teaching personal at the university.
