Emmy Noether arrives in the 22nd century

ICYMI: one of my short stories that appeared in The Mathematical Intelligencer. Enjoy! -AB


My short story featuring a time travelling Emmy Noether has appeared in The Mathematical Intelligencer. You can also read the story here.

Emmy Noether is one of my mathematical heroes and the story is my homage to her. I don’t know how to give her a voice through historical fiction, so I opted for science fiction.

Mathematician and theoretical physicist Emmy Noether (1882 – 1935).

Noether’s life story is equal parts inspiring and tragic, and I document that in previous posts:

I’m proud to bring an imagined Emmy Noether to life in this story. Enjoy!
