Emmy Noether - 133rd BirthdayToday is Emmy Noether's birthday. Albert Einstein described her as:
"The most significant creative mathematical genius thus far produced".
An interesting fact about Emmy. She was going to be an ESOL teacher, but saw the error of her ways and shifted to mathematics. Not that I'm tribal or anything ;)
On another note, what do you think Einstein meant by 'produced'?
I knew I should never have done ESOLReplyDelete
I think the lesson to take from Emmy is that you can be masterful at both.ReplyDelete
