Note: There has been some confusion whether Emmy Noether or het father Max Noether was referent on Reichenbach's dissertation. The dissertation itself is not very helpful; the title page simply states: Referent: Professor Hensel Korreferent: Professor Noether Dekan: Professor Lenk We decided to follow the Deutsche Biographie in this matter.

Also see Haym Hirsh' comment: Based on information I received from Hans Reichenbach's widow, I had previously listed the second advisor as Emmy Noether. I subsequently learned that this did not match up with Reichenbach's dissertation's signature page, which has Max Noether's signature. This is consistent with Emmy Noether being Reichenbach's advisor but not having the standing to be acknowledged formally as advisor because she was female, but I have not been able to find evidence of this as yet., so the confusion remains for the time being
