# Charles Méray

**Hugues Charles Robert Méray** (12 November 1835, Chalon-sur-Saône, Saône-et-Loire - 2 February 1911, Dijon) was a French mathematician. He is noted as the first to publish an arithmetical theory of irrational numbers. His work did not have much of a role in the history of mathematics because France, at that time, was less interested in such matters than Germany.^{[1]}

He was an Invited Speaker of the ICM in 1900 in Paris; his contributed paper was presented by Charles-Ange Laisant.^{[2]}
