Kovalevsky, Sonia: Childhood memoirs & Biography. v1. 15 Apr 2013
A striking figure during the close of the 19th century, Sonja Kovalevsky achieved international eminence as a mathematician at a time when most universities did not admit women. This was matched by her literary abilities, as demonstrated in her charming childhood memoirs. Her close friend, Anna Carlotta Leffler, sister of the renowned Swedish mathematician and a successful writer herself, has written a short biography of this talented lady.
