In mathematics, the Chicago school of mathematical analysis is a school of thought which emphasizes the applications of Fourier analysis to the study of partial differential equations. Mathematician Antoni Zygmund cofounded the school with his doctoral student Alberto Calderón at the University of Chicago in the 1950s.

In 1986 Zygmund received the National Medal of Science, in part for his "creation and leadership of the strongest school of analytical research in the contemporary mathematical world."[1]
