Character Portrait: Emma

Thanks to everyone who participated in our community polls so far. It’s great to see that so many people are emotionally connected to the characters of The Lion’s Song.

In order to get you a head start for next week’s poll about The Lion’s Song: Episode 3 - Derivation, we would like to share a detailed character profile about Emma - the main protagonist of this episode - with you.

Name: Emma Recniczek
Birth Date: October 16th, 1876
Age: 38
Appearance: determined, ingeniouos, humorous
Nicknames: Emmi (as called by her father)

Emma Recniczek is an Austro-Jewish mathematician and logician. She lives in a small apartment in the ninth district of Vienna, which she inherited from her father who died of tuberculosis. She is 38 and works at the library of the University of Vienna keeping book of… books. While this might sound dull, she sports an uncommon sense of (mathematical) humor paired with a strong will and belief in Mathematics and Logic.

Emma got into mathematics through her father Jan Recniczek (an important funder of the University) who convinced many of the lecturers at the time to let her attend classes. However, that was almost fifteen years ago. She worked on her own theories ever since, her job giving her access to some of the most relevant publications in Mathematics and Logic.

At her workplace, she conceals her own notebooks (containing her theories and thought experiments) inside the voluminous registers of the library, pretending to work when actually working on something else.

Emma is working on her big theory on differential logic in an attempt to describe the world around her through changes. She is so enmeshed in her theories that starts to perceive everything around her as changes over time. However, now, she can’t put it all together. She needs input, reflection, feedback from other Mathematicians, above all opinion leader of his time: Professor Gernot Zahler.

Will Emma find a way to discuss her theory with like-minded people? Will she shed light on the problem at the center of her theory in order to achieve a major breakthrough in Mathematics?
