Maryam Mirzakhani, R.I.P.

Recommended Posts

Maryam Mirzakhani, the only female mathematician to receive the Fields Medal, has died of cancer at age 40.  Tough break.  Top of the line female mathematicians  are rare and she was still young enough to produce more first class work.  

Please see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maryam_Mirzakhani for a summary of her work.
