Yuri Valentinovich Nesterenko (Russian: Ю́рий Валенти́нович Нестере́нко; born 5 December 1946 in Kharkov, USSR, now Ukraine) is a Soviet and Russian mathematician who has written papers in algebraic independence theory and transcendental number theory.
- the numbers π, eπ, and Γ(1/4) are algebraically independent over Q.
- the numbers π, , and Γ(1/3) are algebraically independent over Q.
- for all positive integers n, the numbers π, are algebraically independent over Q.
He is a professor at Moscow State University, where he completed the mechanical-mathematical program in 1969, then the doctorate program (Soviet habilitation) in 1973, became a professor of the Number Theory Department in 1992.
