Gerald Budge Folland is an American mathematician and a professor of mathematics at the University of Washington. His areas of interest are harmonic analysis (on both Euclidean space and Lie groups), differential equations, and mathematical physics. The title of his doctoral dissertation at Princeton University (1971) is "The Tangential Cauchy-Riemann Complex on Spheres". He is the author of several standard textbooks in mathematical analysis. In his own words "I enjoy writing and assembling mathematical material into a coherent package".

In 2012 he became a fellow of the American Mathematical Society.[1]
