    The following ideas are called Noetherian:

       Noetherian group, a group that satisfies the ascending chain condition on subgroups
        Noetherian ring, a ring that satisfies the ascending chain condition on ideals.
        Noetherian module, a module that satisfies the ascending chain condition on submodules.
        Noetherian topological space, a topological space that satisfies the descending chain condition on closed sets.
        Noetherian induction, also called well-founded induction.
        Noetherian rewriting system, an abstract rewriting system that has no infinite chains
        Noetherian scheme
    In addition to abstract algebra and physics, this includes an important contribution to Computer Science.

    As Nathan Jacobson says in his Introduction to Noether's Collected Papers,

    The development of abstract algebra, which is one of the most distinctive innovations of twentieth century mathematics, is largely due to her – in published papers, in lectures, and in personal influence on her contemporaries.
    My first math course at Yale was taught by Jacobson.
