Emmy
Noether is famous as the "mother
of modern algebra," but her influence extended
far beyond algebra alone. This talk, based
on my recent book with the title above,
will focus on Noether's broader influence as
an international figure in the 1920s. Beyond
her immediate circle of students, Noether's courses
drew talented mathematicians from all
over the world. Four of the most important were
B.L. van der Waerden, Pavel Alexandrov, Helmut
Hasse, and Olga Taussky. Noether's classic
papers on ideal theory inspired van der Waerden
to recast his research in algebraic geometry.
Her lectures on group theory motivated
Alexandrov to develop links between point set
topology and combinatorial methods. Noether's
vision for a new approach to algebraic number
theory gave Hasse the impetus to pursue a
line of research that led to the Brauer-Hasse-Noether
Theorem, whereas her abstract style
clashed with Taussky's approach to classical
class field theory during a difficult time when
both were trying to find their footing in
a foreign country. Hermann Weyl, her colleague
before both fled to the United States in 1933,
fully recognized that Noether's dynamic
school was the very heart and soul of the famous
Göttingen community. Two recent books on
