Yves F. Meyer (French: [mɛjɛʁ]; born July 19, 1939) is a French mathematician and scientist. He is among the fathers of wavelet theory.
Yves Meyer was placed first in the entrance examination for the École Normale Supérieure in 1957. He obtained his Ph.D. in 1966.
He was professor at the Paris Dauphine University, at the École Polytechnique (1980–1986), invited professor at the Conservatoire National des Arts et Métiers (2000) and currently holds a position as Professor Emeritus at the École Normale Supérieure de Cachan. He was awarded the 2010 Gauss Prize. for fundamental contributions to number theory, operator theory and harmonic analysis, and his pivotal role in the development of wavelets and multiresolution analysis.
