Iranian genius mathematician Maryam Mirzakhani dies aged 40

Maryam Mirzakhani, the Iranian genius mathematician and the first-ever female victor of the prestigious Fields Medal prize, died of breast cancer at a hospital in USA on Saturday.

Mirzakhani was born in Tehran, Iran, and she lived in that country before coming to the U.S.to attend graduate school at Harvard University. She had extensively contributed to the theory of moduli spaces of Riemann surfaces.

"This is a great honor".

Christiane Rousseau, vice president of the International Mathematics Union, said at the time: "It's an extraordinary moment".

In a message issued on Saturday, President Rouhani said the demise of "the well-known mathematical genius" has caused deep sorrow for him.

Data On 6 Million Verizon Customers Leaked Online
Verizon also said in its statement that the PINs exposed in the breach aren't useful for accessing customer accounts online. The company said the only person who got access to the data was the researcher who brought the leak to its attention.

"On behalf of the entire Stanford community, I congratulate Maryam on this incredible recognition, the highest honor in her discipline, the first ever granted to a woman", said Hennessy.

Describing Mirzakhani as a brilliant mathematical theorist, Tessier-Lavigne added, "Her contributions as both a scholar and a role model are significant and enduring, and she will be dearly missed here at Stanford and around the world".

As a teenager, she gained worldwide attention when she won gold medals in two global Mathematical Olympiads, achieving a ideal score in one. In 1995, she earned a flawless score and two gold medals. "Her questions came in English".

Mirzakhani is survived by her husband, Jan Vondrak, and her 6-year-old daughter, Anahita.

"What's so special about Maryam, the thing that really separates her, is the originality in how she puts together these disparate pieces", said Steven Kerckhoff, at the time of her Fields Medal award.

Trump Budget Would Shrink Deficits by One-Third by 2027, CBO Says
This week the White House even released a video on its official Twitter account that assailed the credibility of the C.B.O. In fiscal 2016, the deficit was $585 billion, while the CBO expects it to grow to $693 billion for the 2017 fiscal year.

In recent years, she worked with Alex Eskin at the University of Chicago to investigate the trajectory of a billiard ball as it bounces around a polygonal table. The challenge, which began as a thought exercise among physicists a century ago, had yet to be solved.

In 2014, she told Quanta Magazine, a science publication, that she thought about mathematics in pictures, doodling her ideas on giant sheets of paper scattered across her office. "We hope it will serve as an inspiration to many aspiring mathematicians".

Stanford University in California - where she had been a professor since 2008 - didn't indicate where she died.

"A light was turned off today", NASA scientist Firouz Michael Naderi wrote on Instagram.
