Extractions: Possibly the most dazzling mathematical genius to surface among women during the past two centuries was the highly gifted Russian, Sofia Vasilyevna Kovalevskaya. She was born in Moscow on January 15, 1850 (3 January on the 19th century Russian Calendar), into a family of diverse backgrounds and talents. Sofia was destined to become a woman of great strengths veiled by great vulnerabilities, and the contributions she made to mathematics promise to be enduring ones. Her doctoral dissertation, "On the Theory of Partial Differential Equations," dealt with a rather general system of differential equations of the first order in any number of variables. Weierstrass had already given an analogous structure for total equations; Sonya's paper extended this to partial differential equations. This is a remarkable contribution which was published in Crelle's Journal in 1875. These results are still of importance today and relevant in finding solutions to differential equations with initial conditions, this is known as the Cauchy problem. What follows is a modern version of what is commonly known as the The preceding statement seems equally applicable to hyperbolic, elliptic, and parabolic equations. However, we shall see that difficulties arise in formulating the Cauchy problem for nonhyperbolic equations. Consider, for instance, the Hadamard (1935) example. The problem consists of the elliptic equation

Extractions: A normal intelligence quotient (IQ) ranges from 85 to 115 (According to the Stanford-Binet scale). Only approximately 1% of the people in the world have an IQ of 135 or over. In 1926, psychologist Dr. Catherine Morris Cox - who had been assisted by Dr. Lewis M. Terman, Dr. Florence L. Goodenaugh, and Dr. Kate Gordon - published a study "of the most eminent men and women" who had lived between 1450 and 1850 to estimate what their IQs might have been. The resultant IQs were based largely on the degree of brightness and intelligence each subject showed before attaining the age of 17. Taken from a revised and completed version of this study, table II shows the projected IQs of some of the best scorers. For comparison I have included table I which shows the IQs' relation to educational level.

Extractions: Ruler Of Russia from 954 to 969 "Behind every great man stands a woman," goes the saying. In a real sense that was true of the Russian prince Vladimir. Credited with Christianizing Russia, Vladimir was following in the steps of his grandmother, Princess Olga of Kiev, who attempted the task earlier and can be given partial credit for preventing Russia from turning Islamic. Olga became regent for her son Svyatoslav in 954 upon the assassination of her husband, Igor I, Prince of Kiev. His costly wars had brought Russia to ruin. She immediately executed his murderers and ruled for the next twenty years, implementing fiscal and other reforms throughout the principality. Possibly already a convert to Christianity, she visited Constantinople and in 957 was baptized there. She returned to Russia with a Christ-like hunger for souls and attempted to lead her people to Orthodoxy. At the same time, she sent envoys to Rome, requesting teachers be sent to train her people in the faith. Led by her son, Svyatoslav, the pagan nobles resisted Christ and her efforts failed. Svyatoslav himself almost converted to Islam. Byzantium diplomacy averted that danger. No doubt Olga's influence had a hand. Certainly she had created a political faction which was interested in seeing Russia Christianized. Olga died in 969. Her pagan son gave her a Christian burial. She is recognized as a saint in both the Catholic and Orthodox branches of the church. Her feast day is July 11th.

Extractions: Sofia Kovalevskaya [1850-1891] was the middle child of Vasily Korvin-Krukovsky, an artillery general, and Velizaveta Shubert, both well-educated members of the Russian nobility. Sofia was educated by tutors and governesses. Her early years were spent at Palabino, the Krukovsky country estate, and then she lived in St. Petersburg. Sofia was attracted to mathematics at a very early age and in spite of her family's efforts to turn her attentions elsewhere. She married early (and unhappily) so that she could go abroad to study since her father would not let her leave home otherwise. In 1869 Sofia travelled to Heidelberg to study mathematics and the natural sciences, only to discover that women could not matriculate at the university. Eventually she persuaded the university authorities to allow her to attend lectures unofficially provided each of her lecturers gave his permission. She studied there for three semesters and in 1871 moved to Berlin to study with Weierstrass. Despite his efforts and those of his colleagues the senate refused to permit her to attend courses at the university. Ironically this actually helped her since over the next four years Weierstrass tutored her privately. By the spring of 1874, Kovalevskaya had completed three papers: one was on partial differential equations, another on Abelian integrals, and the third on Saturn's Rings. The first of these is a remarkable contribution. That same year Kovalevskaya was granted her doctorate

Extractions: quatre années elle avait publié trois articles dans l' espoir d'avoir une promotion. Le dernier, "sur la théorie d'équations partielles," a été publié au journal de Crelle, un honneur énorme pour un mathématicien inconnu. Heureusement, peu après Sofia réalisa "son plus grand triomphe personnel" . En 1888, elle a présenté son article, "sur la rotation d'un corps plein autour d'un point fixe," en concurrence pour le Prix Bordin par l'Académie Française des Sciences et elle a obtenu le prix. "Avant le travail de Sofia Kovaleskaia, les seules solutions au mouvement d'un corps rigide autour d'un point fixe avaient été développées pour les deux cas où le corps est symétrique". Dans son article, Sofia a développé la théorie pour un corps asymétrique où le centre de masse n'est pas sur un axe à l'intérieur du corps. RETOUR

Extractions: Allison- Sofia Kovalevskaya My name is Sofia Kovalevskaya. I'm greatly honored to have won this prize. I would like to thank my father for running out of wallpaper for if he hadn't I wouldn't have been introtucted to calculus. I would also like to thank professor Tortov for presenting a physics textbook to my family so I could teach myself trigonometric formulas. I was born on Jan. 15 1850, and was the middle child of my family. My father was Vasily Korvin-Krukovsky; my mother was Velizaveta Shurbert. They were both members of the Russian nobility. I was attracted to mathematics at a young age. I was taught by governess and tutors. When I was 11 my nursery walls covered with my father's old calculus notes for we had a shortage of wallpaper. Because of the "wallpaper" I was introduced to calculus.

Extractions: Born: Jan 15, 1850, Moscow, Russia. Died: Feb 10, 1891, Stockholm, Sweden Sofia Kovalevskaya was the middle child of Vasily Korvin-Krukovsky, an artillery general, and Velizaveta Shubert, both well-educated members of the Russian nobility. Sofia was educated by tutors and governess's, lived first at Palabino, the Krukovsky country estate, then in St. Petersburg, and joined her family's social circle which included the author Dostoevsky. Sofia was attracted to mathematics at a very young age. When Sofia was 11 years old, the walls of her nursery were papered with pages of Ostrogradski's lecture notes on differential and integral analysis. She noticed that certain things on the sheets she had heard mentioned by her uncle. Studying the wallpaper was Sofia's introduction to calculus. It was under the family's tutor, Y. I. Malevich, that Sofia undertook her first proper study of mathematics. Sofia 's father decided to put a stop to her mathematics lessons but she borrowed a copy of Bourdeu's Algebra which she read at night when the rest of the household was asleep.
