In memory of Hilda Geiringer
As the first woman to receive an academic appointment in mathematics at the University of Berlin in the 1920s and the second in the field of mathematics in Germany, Hilda Geiringer was a role model for women in science. She is widely recognized as a pioneer of applied mathematics, statistics, and probability, elasticity and plasticity of materials. Hilda Geiringer was an active member of the Academic Women’s Association which supported female students. Distinguished female scientists are invited to speak at the Hilda Geiringer Lecture Series and Female Visiting Scholar Program dedicated to her memory.
