Louis Nirenberg (born 28 February 1925) is a Canadian-born mathematician, and one of the outstanding analysts of the twentieth century. He has made fundamental contributions to linear and nonlinear partial differential equations and their application to complex analysis and geometry.

He was born in Hamilton, Ontario. He studied as an undergraduate at McGill University, and obtained his doctorate from New York University in 1949 under the direction of James Stoker. He became a professor at the Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences at New York University.

He has received many honours and awards, including the Crafoord Prize, the Bôcher Prize, the Jeffery-Williams Prize, the Steele Prize, and the National Medal of Science.
