Emmy Noether

Emmy Noether 2In existographies, Emmy Noether (1882-1935) (IQ:170|#416) [RGM:542|1,500+] (Siegfried 10:1) (CR:7) was German mathematical physicist noted for []
In 1907, when Einstein was asked to write a review of relativity, and while working with David Hilbert to extend special relativity to form general relativity, they decided to bring on Noether as a consultant to help solve the problem of how the conservation of energy integrates into relativity. (Ѻ)

In 1918, Noether used group theory to show that to every invariance or symmetry property of a physical law corresponds a conservation principle, and vice versa, aka Noether’s theorem. Her theorem, supposedly, reconceptualized energy as an algebraic property in a system of operators, on invariance condition among many. [1] Noether’s theorem is said to have implications for the definition of energy as a substance and have some type of relationship to the conservation of energy.

David Hilbert, her teacher, and Albert Einstein, and others, have characterized her as the most important woman in the history of mathematics.

Quotes | On
The following are quotes on Noether:

“In the judgement of the most competent living mathematicians, Fraulein Noether was the most significant creative mathematical genius thus far produced since the higher education of women began.”
Albert Einstein (1935), “Letter to New York Times” (Ѻ)

Noether was the greatest female mathematician ever. Noether's theorem is a profound statement, perhaps running as deeply into the fabric of our psyche as the famous theorem of Pythagoras. Noether's theorem directly connects symmetry to physics, and vice versa. It frames our modern concepts about nature and rules modern scientific methodology. For scientists it is the guiding light to unraveling nature's mysteries, as they delve into the innermost fabric of matter.”
— Leon Lederman (2004), Symmetry and the Beautiful Universe (Ѻ)
