emmy-noether

Emmy Noether may not be a household name, but her compatriot Albert Einstein — someone who definitely is — once called her “the most significant creative mathematical genius thus far produced since the higher education of women began.”

Noether, born in a small town in Germany in 1882, would have been 133 on Monday, and Google is celebrating her life with a doodle. She is credited with revolutionizing the fields of mathematics and physics with her theory of noncommutative algebras, where answers are determined by the order in which numbers are multiplied.

Born on March 23, 1882 and an Emmy abstract algebra is a German mathematician known for hes groundbreaking contributions to the theoretical physics. Pavel Alexandrov, Albert Einstein , Jean Dieudonné, Hermann Weyl, Norbert Wiener, and many others by the ring area, and the revolutionary theory in algebra is described as the most important female mathematician in history. Noether’s theorem explains the fundamental link between conservation laws and symmetry.Noether_(petite_image)

In the Bavarian town of Erlangen Jew is born into a family. Her father was a mathematician Max Noether. After passing the required exams in French and English were planning to teach but in the end she studied mathematics at the University of Erlangen gave her father’s lesson. Mathematical Institute in Erlangen after finishing her thesis under the supervision of Paul Gordan’s in 1907, she worked for seven years without salary. At that time, women were excluded from academic position). 1915 at the University of Göttingen by David Hilbert and Felix Klein, the world-famous mathematical research center, was called to participate in the mathematics department. But it was rejected by the university administration and continued to teach in the name of Hilbert four more years. Lectures were given the right in 1919, whereby the Privatdozent (in Germanic university, the owner, which means that the title could give lessons independently, without having authority professorship) was able to take the title.
