They Say She WAS GOOD (for a woman)!

     March is Women's History Month; March 23 1882 is the birthdate of Emmy Noether (1882-1935).  Here is a photo of Noether from a  Twitter X posting from the Department of Mathematics and Statistics at St. Andrews -- and it is followed by a stanza from a poem about Noether that I was inspired to write many years ago; following those lines, a link to previous poetic postings about Noether in this blog.


A stanza from my poem about Emmy Noether, "My Dance is Mathematics":

     Direct and courageous,
     lacking self concern,
     elegant of mind,
     nurturing and kind,
     a moral solace in an evil time,
     a poet of logical ideas.

The complete poem and other blog postings that celebrate Noether may be found at this link.
