Vilmos Totik

Vilmos Totik (Mosonmagyaróvár, March 8, 1954) is a Hungarian mathematician, working in classical analysis, harmonic analysis, orthogonal polynomials, approximation theory, potential theory. He is a professor of the University of Szeged. Since 1989 he is also a part-time professor at the University of South Florida (Tampa).

He received the Lester R. Ford Award in 2000 for his expository article A tale of two integrals.[1] He is a corresponding member (1993), member of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences (2001). In 2015 he was elected as a fellow of the American Mathematical Society "for contributions to classical analysis and approximation theory and for exposition."[2]
