Eduard Čech (Czech: [ˈɛduart ˈtʃɛx]) (June 29, 1893 – March 15, 1960) was a Czech mathematician born in Stračov, Bohemia (then Austria-Hungary, now Czech Republic). His research interests included projective differential geometry and topology. He is especially known for the technique known as Stone–Čech compactification in topology. In 1921–1922 he collaborated with Guido Fubini in Turin. Ivo Babuška, Vlastimil Dlab, Zdeněk Frolík, Věra Trnková and Petr Vopěnka have been doctoral students of Čech. He died in Prague.
