In 1905 I published a theorem linking conservation laws in physics to symmetries in the mathematical formulation. My work in the 1920s on ring theory was the foundation in abstract algebra. The work that I had accomplished earned me enough recognition that I was invited as a visiting professor in 1928-1929 at the University of Moscow and then a year later the University of Frankfurt.

My name Emily Noether and I was born in Germany. When i was growing up everyone called me Emmy. I studied Arithmetic and Languages but i was not permitted to enroll in college because I was a woman. When I graduated i was qualified to teach French and English to girls' schools. I eventually changed my mind in my career choice and decided to study math. in 1904, the University of Erlangen decided to allow women to enroll as regular students, so I did. I worked there for seven years without salary, about 25 years later after teaching at many different universititys, she began to work at Göttingen. For first time Emmy Noether was paid a full professor's salary and accepted as a full faculty member.
