Henry C. Wente
Henry Christian Wente is an American mathematician, known for his 1986 discovery of the Wente torus, an immersed constant-mean-curvature surface whose existence disproved a conjecture of Heinz Hopf.
Wente obtained his Ph.D. from Harvard University in 1966, under the supervision of Garrett Birkhoff. He is a professor emeritus of mathematics at the University of Toledo. In 2012 he became a fellow of the American Mathematical Society.
