pronouncing Noether

Here is a very nice explanation of Noether’s theorem.

I had heard of Emmy Noether before, because we covered Noether’s theorem in my Physics degree.  But I hadn’t realised about all the other mathematical contributions she had made. (Additionally, I’ve recently learned how to pronounce “Noether”.  In my head it will probably always be “Noy-ther”, as the lecturer pronounced it all those years ago, but now I say “Nur-tuh”)
