Sonya Kovalevskaya was a distinguished mathematician and considered by her contemporaries to be among the best of her generation. Her work, ideas, and approach to mathematics are still relevant today, while her accomplishments continue to inspire women mathematicians. The academic year 1985-86 marked the 15th anniversary of the Association for Women in Mathematics and the 25th anniversary of the Mary Ingraham Bunting Institute of Radcliffe College, Harvard University-both organizations that have enhanced women's role in mathematics. These two occasions provided a framework for a Kovalevskaya celebration, which included a symposium at Radcliffe College, and special sessions at the AMS meeting in Amherst, Massachusetts, both in October 1985. The papers in this collection were drawn from those two events. The first group of papers contains background material about Kovalevskaya's life and work, including a discussion of how she has been perceived by the mathematical community over the last century. The rest of the papers contain new mathematics and cover a wide variety of subjects in geometry, analysis, dynamical systems, and applied mathematics. They all involve, in one form or another, Kovalevskaya's main areas of interest--differential equations and mathematical questions arising from physical phenomena.

Remembering Sofya Kovalevskaya

Sofia Kovalevskaya was a brilliant and determined young Russian woman of the 19th century who wanted to become a mathematician and who succeeded, in often difficult circumstances, in becoming arguably the first woman to have a professional university career in the way we understand it today. This memoir, written by a mathematician who specialises in symplectic geometry and integrable systems, is a personal exploration of the life, the writings and the mathematical achievements of a remarkable woman. It emphasises the originality of Kovalevskaya’s work and assesses her legacy and reputation as a mathematician and scientist. Her ideas are explained in a way that is accessible to a general audience, with diagrams, marginal notes and commentary to help explain the mathematical concepts and provide context. This fascinating book, which also examines Kovalevskaya’s love of literature, will be of interest to historians looking for a treatment of the mathematics, and those doing feminist or gender studies.

This is the first comprehensive, multidisciplinary, and multilingual bibliography on "Women and Gender in East Central Europe and the Balkans (Vol. 1)" and "The Lands of the Former Soviet Union (Vol. 2)" over the past millennium. The coverage encompasses the relevant territories of the Russian, Hapsburg, and Ottoman empires, Germany and Greece, and the Jewish and Roma diasporas. Topics range from legal status and marital customs to economic participation and gender roles, plus unparalleled documentation of women writers and artists, and autobiographical works of all kinds. The volumes include approximately 30,000 bibliographic entries on works published through the end of 2000, as well as web sites and unpublished dissertations. Many of the individual entries are annotated with brief descriptions of major works and the tables of contents for collections and anthologies. The entries are cross-referenced and each volume includes indexes.
