Michael Rapoport (born 2 October 1948)[1] is a German mathematician.

Rapoport received his Ph.D. from Paris-Sud 11 University in 1976, under the supervision of Pierre Deligne.[2] He currently holds a chair for arithmetic algebraic geometry at the University of Bonn,[3] as well as a visiting appointment at the University of Maryland. In 1992 he was awarded the Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz Prize,[4] in 1999 he won the Gay-Lussac–Humboldt Prize,[5] and he is the recipient of the 2011 Heinz Hopf Prize.[6] In 1994 he was an Invited Speaker (with talk Non-Archimedean period domains) at the ICM in Zurich.

Michael Rapoport is the son of Ingeborg Rapoport, a pediatrician, and Samuel Mitja Rapoport, and brother of Tom Rapoport, both renowned biochemists.
