On page 7 of the quarterly report of the ZEW in Mannheim (one of the major German economic research institutes) you will find a box with a statment from institute director Wolfgang Franz that lists his title as:
"Professor Dr. Dr. h.c. mult. Wolfgang Franz"
Franz is a fine fellow but that fact is unrelated to my question, which is, what does "h.c. mult." mean?
By the way, the "Dr. Dr." is not a typo, it means he has two doctorates.
Who was my favorite student this term?
