ABSTRACT
Background information on German mathematician Emmy Noether is presented. The author reviews how Noether greatly advanced the study of abstract algebra. Noether is often described as one of the twentieth century's greatest woman mathematicians. In addition to her research, Noether taught university courses in mathematics. For most of her career, Noether worked for little or no salary, due to the limited opportunities available to women at the time. Inforamtion on Noether's early life and education is reviewed.

    Let G be a finite group and W be a faithful representation of G over C. The group G acts on the field of rational functions C( W). The question whether the field of invariant functions C( W) G is purely transcendental over C goes back to Emmy Noether. Using the unramified cohomology group of...
