Kolloquium: David Rowe, Univ. Mainz "Emmy Noether (1882-1935): Mathematician Extraordinaire"
Emmy Noether (1882-1935): Mathematician Extraordinaire
Vortragender: David Rowe, Univ. Mainz
Einladender: Karl-Hermann Neeb
This talk is based on a book (same title, Springer, 2021) that was based on a
play: Mathematische Spaziergänge mit Emmy Noether (performed in Erlangen in
2019). The English-language version (Diving into Math with Emmy Noether) will go
on tour in the USA (the gods willing!) in September. In the first part of the
talk, I’ll present themes from the play, which emphasizes Noether’s interactions
with other notable figures from the world of mathematics. After that, we take a
glance back to her days in Erlangen, where she received an unusual education,
and then follow her first path of Göttingen, where she worked closely with
Hilbert and Klein.
