Conference on 100 Years of Noetherian Rings

Sponsored by the Minerva Research Foundation and National Science Foundation

In the early 1920s, Emmy Noether introduced the fundamental concept of a Noetherian ring, a notion that has had a remarkably broad impact on mathematics over the last century. In this conference, we celebrate Noether's legacy with research talks from many areas of algebra, broadly construed, including algebraic geometry, commutative algebra, number theory, and representation theory.
