Amalie “Emmy” Noether: Why she kicks ass
Albert Einstein called her the most “significant” and “creative” female mathematician of all time, and others of her contemporaries were inclined to drop the modification by sex.
She invented a theorem (Noether’s theorem) that united with magisterial concision two conceptual pillars of physics: symmetry in nature and conservation laws.
Her dissertation in algebraic math earned her a doctorate summa cum laude in 1908. 
The University of Erlangen honored her memory, and in that city a coed gymnasium specializing in math was named for her.
