Richard Mansfield Dudley (born 1938) is Professor of Mathematics at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. He received his PhD at Princeton University in 1962 under the supervision of Edward Nelson and Gilbert Hunt. He was a Putnam Fellow in 1958.

He has published over a hundred papers in peer-reviewed journals and has written several books. His specialty is probability theory and statistics, especially empirical processes.

He is often noted for his results on the so-called Dudley entropy integral. [1][2][3] In 2012 he became a fellow of the American Mathematical Society.[4]
