Awesome inspiration for Mathematics !
Vladimir Voevodsky: Obit: The Washington Post
Frenchmen and mathematics ! :) :) :)
Mathematicians are like Frenchmen: whatever you tell to them they translate in their own language and forthwith it is something entirely different. — GOETHE.

Whether engineering by day or origami by night — its math
Cathleen Morawetz, mathematician with realworld impact, dies at 94
It reminds of the “unreasonable ineffectiveness of mathematics” as explained by Eugene Wigner long back ! This in itself is a strong motivation to learn math!!
With snow flakes and unicorns, explore a universe in motion : Marina Ratner and Maryam Mirzakhani
Maryam Mirzakhani — in her own words
Inspirational …motivational…”woman” of mathematics…the other woman coming to my mind is, Dr. Ingrid Daubechies…
You may not be a wunderkind …but if…
It is said that math is a young man’s game (or, a young woman’s game!), but let us look at the motivational example of Marina Ratner:
Maryam Mirzakhani: Woman of Mathematics, Fields Medallist passes away at 40
It is said that one of the best sources of inspiration about mathematics and “men” of mathematics is the book, “Menn of Mathematics” by E. T. Bell. (John Nash, Jr., Nobel laureate, Abel Laureate, genius mathematician, who passed away some time back, had also read this classic as a young boy. You might have known him through the movie, A Beautiful Mind starring Russell Crowe). But, there have also been “really rare” “women of mathematics” like Emmy Noether (who had passed away unsung, unheard; she also passed away due to some cancer), and just recently, eminent mathematician Maryam Mirzakhani, of Iranian origin, Fields Medallist, and professor at Stanford University, has also passed away at a young age of 40 due to cancer. It is said that mathematicians are loners; but she proved it otherwise: she was a professor, a wife, a mother also…
I wish someone writes a classic called “Women of Mathematics” also just like long back E. T. Bell wrote the classic, “Men of Mathematics”.
Below is an obit on Maryam Mirzakhani in The Times of India online:
