The Most Important Woman in the History Of Mathematics #WomenInSTEM

The Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics has started a group called the Emmy Noether Circle to help increase the number of women in physics and mathematical physics at Perimeter Institute. The video above tells the story of Emmy Noether, a woman whom Albert Einstein has called “the most important woman in the history of mathematics”.

Despite her brilliance, few have ever heard of Emmy Noether. Strange, since she gave us a deep and powerful theorem that physicists and mathematicians use every day. Learn more about the Emmy Noether Circle, Perimeter Institute’s new initiative to help women and girls in physics here.
