Emmy Noether. Amazing woman, amazing mathematician. Noether did trail-blazing work in a number of areas, especially abstract algebra. Rather than focusing on real numbers and polynomials she was interested in abstract structures, like rings or groups, that obey certain rules. She went on to prove fundamentals that now underpin modern physics: Noether's theorem states that any differentiable symmetry of the action of a physical system has a corresponding conservation law.
