Maryam MirzakhaniHave you ever known her? She is the first woman honored with the prestigious Fields Medal. But why? And how? Let`s find out.
She was an Iranian Mathematicians and professor of mathematics in Stanford University in California. She is known as the first
Mirzakhani was born on May, 3rd 1977 in Teheran, Iran. Unfotunately she was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2013, and she died on July, 14th 2017 at the age 40
She was awarded the fields medal in 2014 for her outstanding contributions to the dynamics and geometry of Riemann Surfaces and their moduli spaces in Seoul, August 13th 2014 at the international Congress of Mathematicians.
“Mirzakhani specialized in theoretical mathematics that read like a foreign language by those outside of mathematics: moduli spaces, Teichmüller theory, hyperbolic geometry, Ergodic theory and symplectic geometry,” said the Stanford press announcement.
“I get excited about math maybe just as a challenge. You have to spend some energy and effort to see the beauty of math ... “
"... The beauty of mathematics only shows itself to more patient followers,”
