Marek Wolf is a Czech astronomer, currently (as of March 2010) the head the Astronomický ústav, Univerzita Karlova v Praze (Astronomical Institute, Charles University of Prague).[1]

He is a prolific discoverer of asteroids. The Minor Planet Center credits his discoveries under M. Wolf: he is sometimes confused with Max Wolf (1863–1932), a German astronomer and a very famous asteroid hunter who is credited as M. F. Wolf.
