A Short Biography of Emmy Noether

Ed Hessler

Unless you are a theoretical physicist you are unlikely to have heard of Emmy Noether. Her contributions to physics were breathtaking so if you don't know her but once heard of her and forgotten what she did read on.

Dr. Don Lincoln of Fermilab who hosts the YouTube channel Fermilab, takes on this task in a 10m 23s video titled "The Most Significant Genius." That is quite a claim and I think Noether was just that. Arguments about this are at a much higher pay grade than mine. This video is very nicely done.
