👓 Maryam Mirzakhani | What’s New

Read Maryam Mirzakhani by Terry Tao (What's New)
I am totally stunned to learn that Maryam Mirzakhani died today, aged 40, after a severe recurrence of the cancer she had been fighting for several years. I had planned to email her some wishes for a speedy recovery after learning about the relapse yesterday; I still can’t fully believe that she didn’t make it.

A nice obituary about a fantastic mathematician from a fellow Fields Prize winner.
