Celebrate the mathematics of Emmy Noether

An algebra pioneer who faced discrimination deserves wider recognition on the
centenary of her namesake theorem

Noether’s expertise in symmetry led her to discover that the symmetries of a
physical system are inextricably linked to physical quantities that are
conserved, such as energy. These ideas became known as Noether’s theorem (E.
Noether *Nachr. d. Ges. d. Wiss. zu Göttingen, Math.-phys. Kl. ***1918**,
235–257; 1918).
