The mathematics community mourns the loss of Maryam Mirzakhani, aged 40 and mother of a little girl. We express our deepest condolences to her family and friends. Specialist in Teichmüller theory, hyperbolic geometry, ergodic theory and symplectic geometry, Maryam was the first woman to be awarded the Fields medal in 2014.
