Jens Franke (born June 29, 1964) is a German mathematician. He holds a chair at the University of Bonn's Hausdorff Center for Mathematics since 1992. Franke's research has covered various problems of number theory, algebraic geometry and analysis on locally symmetric spaces.
In recent years, Franke worked on an implementation of the Number Field Sieve algorithm for prime decomposition. In May 2007, he and his colleague Thorsten Kleinjung announced the factorization of M1039 (see also Mersenne prime).
