Maryam Mirzakhani

Discussion started on

The great mathematician Maryam Mirzakhani, the only woman to win the Fields Medal (the "Nobel Prize of Mathematics"), has died at age 40.

A fine appreciation of her appears in today's New York Times.

She should be an inspiration to all budding young scientists, especially mathematicians.

Best, Gatz

So sad.

Maryam was both brainy and brave....

May she rest in peace.
