Q. Is 23 a Sophie Germain prime?

are prime. The first few Sophie Germain primes are 2, 3, 5, 11, 23, 29, 41, 53, 83, 89, 113, 131, (OEIS A005384).

Q. Why did Sophie Germain pretend to be a man?

Lived 1776 – 1831. Sophie Germain was a wholly self-taught mathematical genius who began her career pretending to be a man, because the social conventions of her time prevented women from following intellectual careers.

Q. What did Sophie Germain discover?

Known forElasticity theory and number theory (e.g. Sophie Germain prime numbers)
Scientific career


Q. Who were Sophie Germain’s parents?

Q. Did Sophie Germain have siblings?

Marie-Madeline Germain

Q. What school did Sophie Germain Go To?

École Polytechnique

Q. Where was Sophie Germain from?

Rue Saint-Denis, Paris, France

Q. Who did Emmy Noether work with?

In 1915 she joined the Mathematical Institute in Göttingen and started working with Klein and Hilbert on Einstein’s general relativity theory. In 1918 she proved two theorems that were basic for both general relativity and elementary particle physics. One is still known as “Noether’s Theorem.”

Q. When was Sophie Germain born?

1 April 1776

Q. What did Albert Einstein say about Emmy Noether?

Today, physicists are still formulating new theories that rely on Noether’s work. When Noether died, Einstein wrote in the New York Times: “Noether was the most significant creative mathematical genius thus far produced since the higher education of women began.” It’s a hearty compliment.

Q. What is Emmy Noether most famous for?

Emmy Noether was a groundbreaking German mathematician who made immense contributions to both algebra and physics in the face of great adversity. She is best known for Noether’s Theorem, which had far-reaching consequences for theoretical physics.

Q. What was Emmy Noether Theorem?

Noether’s theorem or Noether’s first theorem states that every differentiable symmetry of the action of a physical system has a corresponding conservation law. The theorem was proven by mathematician Emmy Noether in 1915 and published in 1918, after a special case was proven by E. Cosserat and F. Cosserat in 1909.

Q. What does symmetry mean in physics?

In physics, a symmetry of a physical system is a physical or mathematical feature of the system (observed or intrinsic) that is preserved or remains unchanged under some transformation. Continuous symmetries can be described by Lie groups while discrete symmetries are described by finite groups (see Symmetry group).

Q. What is current conservation?

Conserved current is the flow of the canonical conjugate of a quantity possessing a continuous translational symmetry. The continuity equation for the conserved current is a statement of a conservation law.

Q. Who proved Noether’s theorem?

Emmy Noether

Q. What is a Lagrangian in physics?

Lagrangian function, also called Lagrangian, quantity that characterizes the state of a physical system. In mechanics, the Lagrangian function is just the kinetic energy (energy of motion) minus the potential energy (energy of position).

Q. Is the Lagrangian conserved?

No, the Lagrangian is not conserved. The Lagrangian is defined as kinetic energy minus potential energy. For the Lagrangian to be conserved, you would need both kinetic energy and potential energy to be conserved. Since, in a closed system if then and So they must be both constant, that is, nothing is changing.

Q. Which symmetry leads to law of conservation of linear momentum?

Noether symmetry

Q. Is the law of conservation of momentum always true?

In an isolated system (such as the universe), there are no external forces, so momentum is always conserved. Because momentum is conserved, its components in any direction will also be conserved. Conservation of charge states that the total amount of electric charge in a system does not change with time.
