Christopher Deninger (born 8 April 1958) is a German mathematician at the University of Münster. He made notable contributions to number theory and algebraic geometry.

Deninger obtained his doctorate from the University of Cologne in 1982, under the supervision of Curt Meyer. In 1992 he shared a Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz Prize with Michael Rapoport, Peter Schneider and Thomas Zink. In 1998 he was a plenary speaker at the International Congress of Mathematicians in Berlin.[1]

In 2012 he became a fellow of the American Mathematical Society.[2]
