Tamar Lichter Blanks, Rutgers University When Albert Einstein wrote an obituary for Emmy Noether in 1935, he described her as a “creative mathematical genius” who – despite “unselfish, significant work over a period of many years” – did not get the recognition she deserved. Noether made groundbreaking contributions to mathematics at a
Alfred Vaino Aho and Jeffrey David Ullman were declared the recipients of the 2020 ACM A.M. Turing Award “for fundamental algorithms and theory underlying programming language implementation and for synthesizing these results and those of others in their highly influential books, which educated generations of computer scientists.” Alfred V.
Last time the phrase “theoretical computer science” found mention in an Abel Prize citation was in 2012 when the legendary Hungarian mathematician, Endre Szemerédi was awarded mathematics’ highest honour.

On the International Day of Women and Girls in Science, this is the inspirational story of Emmy Noether who single handedly shaped the future of mathematics and physics in the early half of the 20th century in the face of insurmountable barricades constructed by antediluvian attitudes towards women in science.
1. Hardy-Littlewood conjecture for twin primes Let denote the number of primes such that is also prime. Define the twin prime constant as then, . 2. Hardy-Littlewood circle method In mathematics, the Hardy-Littlewood circle method is a technique of analytic number theory. It is named after G. H. Hardy and J.
“Music is the pleasure the human mind experiences from counting without being aware that it is counting.” Gottfried Leibniz The interaction between mathematics, physics, and music is in a way obvious as matter is a wave structure of the space. The Pythagoreans were one of the first philosophers who tried
Computers are highly complex, complicated machines capable of storing, processing, and analyzing vast quantities of data far faster than any single human ever could. While the human brain and nervous system are very impressive in their own right, they simply can’t match up with the speeds and ruthless efficiency
