Monday, 13. May 2024
17:00 - 18:00


Prof. Dr. Salma Kuhlmann & Dr. Gabriela Michalek

Prof. Dr. Norbert Schappacher I.R.M.A Strasbourg

This event is part of an event series „KWIM Lecture Series“.

The Density of Chance. Remarks on Maryam Mirzakhani's Life and Work.

The amazing diculties that women encountered in mathematical academia in the 20th century delayed the first Fields Medal given to a woman mathematician until 2014. The talk will start with a reminder of this appaling past. It will move on to present an overview of Maryam Mirzakhani's life and career. We shall then locate her research in the sprawling mathematical landscape, and try to explain what makes her results both special and inspiring.

Before the talk, at 4:00PM, we invite everyone to KWIM Tea and Coffee Round.
