Diese Veranstaltung ist Teil der Veranstaltungsreihe „KWIM Lecture Series“.

The amazing diculties that women encountered in mathematical academia in the 20th century delayed the rst 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 Mirzahkani'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.
