Only Woman to Win Math's Highest Award, Maryam Mirzakhani, is Dead

The only female to ever win the highest price in Maths, 'the quadrennial Fields Medal', Maryam Mirzakhani, is dead. The 40 year old,Iranian genius, died after a long battle with cancer.

Via Stanford....
Stanford mathematics Professor Maryam Mirzakhani, the first and to-date only female winner of the Fields Medal since its inception in 1936, died July 15 after a long battle with cancer. Mirzakhani was 40 years old.

The quadrennial Fields Medal, which Mirzakhani won in 2014, is the most prestigious award in mathematics, often equated in stature with the Nobel Prize. Mirzakhani specialized in theoretical mathematics that read like a foreign language by those outside of mathematics: moduli spaces, Teichmüller theory, hyperbolic geometry, Ergodic theory and symplectic geometry.
She was quoted to have said......
“You have to spend some energy and effort to see the beauty of math".
 May her soul R.I.P
