Vincenzo Riccati (Castelfranco Veneto, 11 January 1707 – Treviso, 17 January 1775) was a Venetian mathematician and physicist. He was the brother of Giordano Riccati, and the second son of Jacopo Riccati.[1] Riccati's main research continued the work of his father in mathematical analysis, especially in the fields of the differential equations and physics.

In 1757 he published the first volume of Opusculorum ad res physicas et mathematicas pertinentium, the second volume appearing in 1762. In collaboration with Hieronymo Saldino he contributed to Institutiones Analyticae, volume one in 1765, volume two in 1767.[2]
