Anne Sjerp Troelstra (10 August 1939 – 7 March 2019) was a professor of pure mathematics and foundations of mathematics at the Institute for Logic, Language and Computation (ILLC) of the University of Amsterdam.

He was a constructivist logician, who was influential in the development of intuitionistic logic[1] With Georg Kreisel, he was a developer of the theory of choice sequences.[2] He wrote one of the first texts on linear logic,[3] and, with Helmut Schwichtenberg, he co-wrote an important book on proof theory.[4]

He became a member of the Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences in 1976.[5] Troelstra died on 7 March 2019.[6]
