Transcript of emmy noether

Emmy Noether Emmy Noether was born on March 23, 1882 and died on April 14, 1935 (she was 53). Emmy was born in Erlangen, Germany. Her father was a mathematician and so was her brother (Fritz) .
Growing up Emmy learned many language, and loved to dance and sing. Noether's work had a lasting influence in both mathematics and physics. Awards The most famous mathematician ,
you`ve never heard of ! Emmy started her education at University of Erlangen at age 18.
Because she was a female she was not allowed to enroll in classes, she could only watch. After 2 years she took an exam that awarded her a Bachelor's degree.
Five years later she earned the second Doctorate in Mathematics awarded to a woman. Erlanger Mathematical Topics named for Noether
Noetherian group
Noetherian ring
Noetherian module
Noetherian space
Noetherian induction
Noetherian scheme
Noether problem
Noether normalization lemma
Noether's theorem
Noether's second theorem
Lasker–Noether theorem
Skolem–Noether theorem
Albert–Brauer–Hasse–Noether theorem Noether's Contributions Noether's Theorem united two pillars of physics: symmetry in nature and the universal law of conservation. This theorem is the basis for much of today's quantum physics research. In mathematics, she was the founder of Abstract Algebra. Because Emmy Noether was born in a time (1882) and place (Germany) where women were not believed to be intelligent she received very little formal recognition. Even today, though her work was foundational in not one, but two subjects few people know her story.
"The connection between symmetries and conservation laws is one of the greatest discoveries of twentieth century physics. But I think few non-experts will have ever heard either of it or its maker- Emmy Noether, a great German mathematician. But it is as essential to twentieth century physics as famous ideas like the impossibility of exceeding the speed of light." Lee Smolin Noether taught, first at Erlangen University and later at Gottinen for 13 years , but because she was a women she was not paid or allowed to teach under her own name. With Germany's defeat in World War I and the help of her friend Albert Einstein she was finally allowed to teach under her own name (but still without pay). Even though Noether was not paid, her brilliance attracted a following of graduate students who became leading mathematicians. These included:
Jakob Levitzki: founder of modern ring theory
Helmut Hasse: founder of number theory
Hans Fitting: group theory and Geometry
Van der Waerden's book: foundation of abstract algebra "If one proves the equality of two numbers a and b by showing first that 'a is less than or equal to b' and then 'a is greater than or equal to b', it is unfair, one should instead show that they are really equal by disclosing the inner ground for their equality. - Emmy Noether Jakob Levitzki Helmut Hasse Van der Waerden Famous Quote I chose Emmy Noether because I was curious about her. Emmy Noether took a nonpaying job where she couldn't even be the teacher because she loved math so much. She taugh me to follow your dreams even if it doesn't work out at first. As the founder of new math,Emmy Noether has touch the lives of almost every child in the U.S Emmy lived a simple life researching and teaching a subject she loved. She endured many hardships, never married and had children. Her gender and her religion, Jewish, caused her many problems in Germany. She eventually moved to the United States and taught at Bryn Mawr College until her untimely death. Life Outside the Classroom....
