- KWIM Special Lecture about scientific achievements of Emmy Noether by a mathematician Dr. Sebastian Krapp (University of Konstanz)

Abstract: In 1922, Emmy Noether (18821935) was the rst woman in Germany to become a professor in mathematics. While she is best known for her seminal works in the mathematical discipline of abstract algebra, her much
celebrated achievement, now known as Noether's Theorem, is set in the intersection of mathematics and physics. This talk presents the life and accomplishments of Emmy Noether with an emphasis on her ground-breaking achievements in abstract algebra and theoretical physics.
