Character description

Emmy Noether (1882-1935) was an influential German Jewish mathematician. She proved two theorems that were basic for both general relativity and elementary particle physics, one of which is still known as "Noether's Theorem." During the 1920s, she did foundational work that led to a body of principles unifying algebra, geometry, linear algebra, topology, and logic. She was awarded the Ackermann-Teubner Memorial Prize in Mathematics in 1932. In 1933, she moved to the USA to escape the Nazis, and taught briefly at Bryn Mawr College and the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton before dying suddenly of a post-operative infection at age 53. Albert Einstein and Norber Wiener each praised her as a mathematical genius.
