#MathMonday with Emmy Noether (1882-1935)
Emmy Noether was a mathematician who devised a mathematical principle, Noether’s theorem, that became a foundation for quantum physics. Emmy’s calculations were used by Albert Einstein as he formulated his general theory of relativity.
When the Nazis took control, Emmy was forced to leave Germany and she moved to the United States to become a guest lecturer at Bryn Mawr College. Emmy published over 40 papers during her career, and inspired many students over her tenure as a mathematics professor.
