天才女数学家因癌早逝

Maryam Mirzakhani, the first woman to receive the prestigious Fields Medal for mathematics, has died in the US.
玛丽安·米尔扎哈尼,第一位获得国际杰出数学发现奖-菲尔兹奖的女子,近日在美国逝世。
The 40-year-old Iranian, a professor at Stanford University, had breast cancer which had spread to her bones.

Nicknamed the "Nobel Prize for Mathematics", the Fields Medal is only awarded every four years to between two and four mathematicians under 40.
绰号为“诺贝尔数学奖“,菲尔兹奖每四年举办一次,颁发给40岁以下的二至四位数学家。
It was given to Prof Mirzakhani in 2014 for her work on complex geometry and dynamical systems.
2014年,该奖颁给了米尔扎哈尼教授,认可ta在复杂几何和动力学系统方面做的工作。
Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said Prof Mirzakhani’s death caused "great sorrow," state media reported.
伊朗国家媒体报道称,伊朗总统哈桑·罗哈尼表示对米尔扎哈尼教授的逝世“沉重悲痛“。

Stanford University President Marc Tessier-Lavigne described Prof Mirzakhani as "a brilliant mathematical theorist and also a humble person who accepted honours only with the hope that it might encourage others to follow her path".
斯坦福大学校长马克泰西– 拉维涅将米尔扎哈尼教授描述为“一位辉煌的数学理论家,也是一个谦卑的人,仅因希望鼓励别人在数学道路取得成绩才接受荣誉“。
"Maryam is gone far too soon but her impact will live on for the thousands of women she inspired to pursue math and science," he said.
他说:“玛丽安走得太快,但是她的影响力将在数以千计的被她所启发的追求数学和科学的女性身上活下去。“
"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."
“她作为一个学者和榜样的贡献是重要和持久的,她将被斯坦福大学和世界各地深深的怀念。“
Born in 1977, Prof Mirzakhani was brought up in post-revolutionary Iran and won two gold medals in the International Mathematical Olympiad as a teenager.
出生于1977年的米尔扎哈尼教授在革命后的伊朗长大,青少年时期获得了两枚国际奥数金牌。
She earned a PhD at Harvard University in 2004, and later worked at Princeton before securing a professorship at Stanford in 2008.
