Noether

1955 EH. Discovered 1955 Mar. 14 at the Goethe Link Observatory at Brooklyn, Indiana.

Named in memory of Emmy Noether (1882-1935), extraordinarily talented mathematician who exerted a great influence on the development of mathematics and laid the foundations of modern algebra. Educated in Erlangen, she moved to Goottingen in 1915 and was for many years the central figure in mathematical studies there, before leaving for positions at Princeton and Bryn Mawr in 1933. From axiomatic principles she developed a theory of ideals, relating them to groups and rings. She also contributed extensively to the study of noncommutative algebras. (M 27464) Named by the Small Bodies Names Committee.
