List of Jewish mathematicians is a list that includes mathematicians who are or were both non-American and verifiably Jewish or of Jewish descent. In 1933, when the Nazis rose to power in Germany, one-third of all mathematics professors in the country were Jewish, while Jews constituted less than one percent of the population.[1]
