Maryam Mirzakhani, the first woman to receive the Fields Medal for mathematics, has died, according to the BBC.
Maryam Mirzakhani, an Iranian genius mathematician and the first-ever female victor of the prestigious Fields Medal prize, died at the age of 40 of breast cancer at a hospital in US on July 14, Tehran Times reports. Mirzakhani was 37 when in 2014 she became the first woman to win the prize, which was established in 1936 and is equivalent to the Nobel Prize for mathematics.
At the time, she had become the first girl named on Iran's team in the International Mathematical Olympiad and had already won gold medals in the 1990s, NPR reported.
It was at Sharif University of Technology in Iran, where she received her Bachelor of Science, that she discovered her passion for mathematics.
The Iran native thrived in study of curved surfaces such as doughnut shapes and amoebas - to a degree that other bright minds in the field dared not explore, her colleagues have said.

Kerckhoff is a mathematics professor at Stanford and was one of Mirzakhani's collaborators. "Things evolve, and then you look back at a character, and it's completely different from your first impression".
