Does anyone know how to describe mathematicians who have specialized into the different branches of mathematics? In English we say: Algebraist, Topologist, Analyst, Graph Theorist, Geometer, etc. To say it in Chinese do you just add 家 to the name of the branch of mathematics? So that an analyst would be called 分析家? If so, does it make sense if you specialize further and, for example, call a real analyst 实分析家?
