Jürgen Neukirch (24 July 1937 – 5 February 1997[1]) was a German mathematician known for his work on algebraic number theory.

He got his diploma in mathematics in 1964 in Bonn, for his PhD thesis 1965 (advisor: Wolfgang Krull) he was awarded the Felix-Hausdorff-Gedächtnis-Preis and habilitated one year later. From 1967 to 1969 he was guest professor in Kingston, Ontario (Canada) and in Cambridge/Mass. (USA), then professor in Bonn. In 1971 he moved to Regensburg university.[2]

He is known for his work on the embedding problem in algebraic number theory, the Báyer–Neukirch theorem on special values of L-functions, arithmetic Riemann existence theorems and the Neukirch–Uchida theorem in birational anabelian geometry. He gave a simple description of the reciprocity maps in local and global class field theory.

He wrote three books on class field theory,[3][4] algebraic number theory,[5] and the cohomology of number fields,[6][7] respectively.
