The "mother" of twentieth-century mathematics, Emmy Noether spearheaded the development of modern abstract algebra. Her ideas revolutionized current understanding of algebra and laid the groundwork for further work by her "children" and "grandchildren" in the mathematical world, who consider her the greatest algebraist of the last hundred years.
