Ichirō Satake (佐武 一郎, Satake Ichirō) (25 December 1927 – 10 October 2014) was a Japanese mathematician working on algebraic groups who introduced the Satake isomorphism and Satake diagrams. He was considered an iconic figure in the theory of linear algebraic groups and symmetric spaces.[1]

Satake was born in Tokyo, Japan in 1927, and received his Ph.D. at the University of Tokyo under the supervision of Shokichi Iyanaga. He was a professor at UC Berkeley from 1968 to 1983. After retirement he returned to Japan, where he spent time at Tohoku University and Chuo University. He died of respiratory failure on 10 October 2014.[2]
