Happy Bday Emmy Noether! #GirlPower #Physics

The doodle celebrates the the 133rd bday of renowned mathematician and physicist Emmy Noether.

From WikipediaDescribed by Pavel Alexandrov, Albert Einstein, Jean Dieudonné, Hermann Weyl, and Norbert Wiener as the most important woman in the history of mathematics,[2][3] she revolutionized the theories of rings, fields, and algebras. In physics, Noether’s theorem explains the fundamental connection between symmetry and conservation laws.[4]

Notably, Noether overcame immense adversity and pioneered the field in both math and physics (being a female jewish professor in early Nazi Germany was not exactly the most welcoming environment).
