Jane Piore Gilman is an American mathematician, a distinguished professor of mathematics at Rutgers University. Her research concerns topology and group theory.
Gilman is one of three children of physicist Emanuel R. Piore. She did her undergraduate studies at the University of Chicago, graduating in 1965, and received her Ph.D. from Columbia University in 1971.
