Kolloquium: “Emmy Noether (1882-1935): Mathematician Extraordinaire”
Date: Wed. June 01, 2022
Organized by: Department Mathematik, (Department of Mathematics) at Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg (Germany)
Title: Kolloquium “Emmy Noether (1882-1935): Mathematician Extraordinaire”
Speaker: David Rowe, Johannes-Gutenberg Universität Mainz
Host: Karl-Hermann Neeb
Abstract. 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.
