The 35th ORESME meeting is scheduled for January 29-30, 2016, at Northern Kentucky University. This meeting will be dedicated to a study of the work of Emmy Noether (1882–1935), who was immensely influential in the development of the mathematics of the later half of the twentieth century.

We will read from

Ideal Theory in Rings, a newly available English translation of a seminal paper of Noether's by Daniel Berlyne, an undergraduate student (!) at the University of Warwick.

Berlyne's translation [available for download as a pdf below] is of the German original:

Emmy Noether, Idealtheorie in Ringbereichen, Math. Ann. 83 (1921), 24-66.

This is the paper in which Noether defines and illustrates the properties of rings that satisfy the ascending chain condition on ideals which now bears her name. It comes to us [and is also available as a pdf below] from her collected works:

Emmy Noether, Gesammelte Abhandlungen (Collected Papers), N. Jacobson (ed.), Springer Verlag, Berlin/New York, 1983.

In addition, we have a secondary source [available below] that will provide more context:

Robert Gilmer, "Commutative Ring Theory", Chapter 8 in Emmy Noether: a tribute to her life and work, edited by James W. Brewer and Martha K. Smith (Marcel Dekker, 1981), pp. 131-143, 175-177).
