Vera Martha Winitzky de Spinadel (August 22, 1929 – January 26, 2017, Buenos Aires, Argentina) was an Argentine mathematician. She was the first woman to gain a PhD in mathematics at the University of Buenos Aires, Argentina, in 1958.[1] Between 2010 and 2017, she was full Emeritus Professor in the Faculty of Architecture, Design and Urban Planning of the University of Buenos Aires.[2] In 1995, she was named Director of the Centre of Mathematics and Design.[3] In April 2005 she inaugurated the Laboratory of Mathematics & Design, University Campus in Buenos Aires.[4] From 1998 to her death she was the President of the International Mathematics and Design Association,[5] which organizes international congresses every 3 years and publishes a Journal of Mathematics & Design. She was the author of more than 10 books and published more than 100 research papers.[6] Spinadel was a leader in the field of Metallic mean [7] in the development of the classical Golden Ratio got wide international recognition.[8]
