Women in Mathematics
As
part of its celebrations of the World Mathematical Year in 2000, the
Canadian Mathematical Society sponsored the creation of a poster
on women in mathematics.
The poster features six outstanding women mathematicians
who were awarded the
KriegerNelson prize
from 1995
to 2000.
This prize is
awarded annually by the Canadian Mathematical Society for distinguished research
by women in mathematics and honours the careers of Cecelia Krieger
and Evelyn Nelson.
