`Famous mathematician Amalie Emmy Noether
The famous German mathematician that is not very well know but is noticed for her contributions is Noether. Amalie Emmy Noether, named after her mother Ida Amalie; was born on March 23, 1882. Emmy died in Bryn Mawr, Pennsylvania during the year of 1935. Emmy had four siblings but only two of them survived their childhood. Her brother and father were both mathematicians. Noether never married because she was focused on math all the time. Noether attended Hohere Tochter Schule in Erlangen. She took a test that certified her for English and French. She then went to achieve a mathematics degree taking classes at Erlangen. Once she passed the exam in Nurnberg, she attended University of Gottingen. At the age eighteen, Emmy sat in on math classes then took the exam to permit her to be a doctoral student in math. Noether went back to University of Erlangen to receive her doctorate degree; in 1907 she got a Ph. D in mathematics. Not only was Noether a mathematician, she was also a teacher that inspired several students. She taught at the University of Gottingen until the Nazi dismissed all Jewish professors. Noether made an impact on math, but many have forgotten who she is. She then moved to Bryn Mawr College in the United States where Noether became famous because of the contribution to algebra and theoretical physics. Emmy’s goals were to become one of the greatest algebraists in time, no matter what kind of obstacles stood in her way. Noether invented concepts such as, “Noether’s theorm,” “Noetherian’s Ring,” and “Noetherian Induction” (“Amalie Emmy”). Not only did she invent the three significant rings; she changed how mathmaticans thought about their subject. Emmy’s main way of thinking was simple and general. Emmy was defined as a genius according to Einstein. “German mathematician Emmy Noether (1882-1935) revolutionized the areas of abstract algebra and theoretical physics. Even Einstein called...
