Yves F. Meyer (French: [mɛjɛʁ]; born July 19, 1939) is a French mathematician and scientist. He is among the fathers of wavelet theory.


Yves Meyer was placed first in the entrance examination for the École Normale Supérieure in 1957.[1] He obtained his Ph.D. in 1966.[2]

He was professor at the Paris Dauphine University, at the École Polytechnique (1980–1986), invited professor at the Conservatoire National des Arts et Métiers (2000) and currently holds a position as Professor Emeritus at the École Normale Supérieure de Cachan. He was awarded the 2010 Gauss Prize.[2] for fundamental contributions to number theory, operator theory and harmonic analysis, and his pivotal role in the development of wavelets and multiresolution analysis.
