# Full names of C. K. Chow and C. N. Liu

Where can I find the full names of C. K. Chow and C. N. Liu, of the Chow-Liu tree fame?

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chow%E2%80%93Liu_tree

https://ieeexplore.ieee.org/document/1054142

From what I could find, the names are

• Chao-Kong Chow
• Chao-Ning Liu

I found the second from this IEEE note, which links Chao-Ning Liu to IBM Thomas .J. Watson (which he joined in 1957). Then, a search for patents gave the name of C.K. Chow.

C.K. Chow's name is also stated in this paper by O'Donnell and Servedio on The Chow Parameters Problem (see abstract).

And since a comment also asked for the full name of L. F. Kozachenko (of the Kozachenko-Leonenko entropy estimate fame), here it is: Lyudmyla Fedoryvna Kozachenko.
