 Named for the noted mathematician, the Emmy Noether Research Institute for Mathematics held a twoday conference dedicated to her heritage and her influence on mathematics and physics in the 20th and 21st centuries. This volume presents the proceedings of that conference. It includes a comprehensive description of her contributions to commutative and noncommutative algebra, algebraic geometry, topology, and physics given by world experts in these fields. Also included is a profile of her life. The volume is a comprehensive collection of Noether's valuable contributions to mathematics and physics. A publication of the BarIlan University. Distributed worldwide by the AMS. Readership Graduate students and research mathematicians; physicists. Table of Contents  M. Teicher  On Emmy Noether
