Schmidt was follmvcd by Ernst Fischer (1875-1954); it is he who became a true mentor to Emmy Noether. With him she could "talk mathematics" to her heart's desire. Although both lived in Erlangen and saw each other frequently at the University, a large number of postcards exist from E. Noether to E. Fischer, containing mathematical arguments. Looking over this correspondence, one gets the impression that immediately after a conversation with Fischer Emmy Noether sat down and continued the ideas discussed in writing, whether so as not to forget them, or whether to stimulate another discussion.

At times, "outsiders," that is, students who were not part of the Noether crowd, would come and try to follow one of her lectures. They would sit in the last rows, while the "regulars" sat in the front. " Emmy Noether often behaved in a manner less than friendly toward people who did not relate to her way of thinking, or even towards those whom she assumed did not. This has been reported by various parties. Nowadays no one bears a grudge against her for this. However, at the time people were often offended by her harsh and sometimes downright derisive manner.

Simultaneously, these papers contain the foundations for the theory of abstract fields, rings, and modules which was to influence Emmy Noether by way of Ernst Fischer, whose thinking was a direct continuation of Hilbert's and Mertens' 29 Emmy Noether (1840-1927). In May 1914, Emmy Noether completed her manuscript "Fields and systems of rational functions" ("Karper und Systeme rationaler Funktionen"), which carries the note, "The incentive for this work was given by my conversations with Mr. Fischer .
