**Guido Leopold Weiss** (born 29 December 1928 in Trieste) is an American mathematician, working in analysis, especially Fourier analysis and harmonic analysis.

## CareerEdit

Weiss studied at the University of Chicago, where he received in 1951 his master's degree and in 1956 under Antoni Zygmund his PhD with thesis *On certain classes of function spaces and on the interpolation of sublinear operators*.^{[1]} At DePaul University he became an instructor in 1955, an assistant professor in 1956, and in 1959 an associate professor. in 1960 he was a visiting professor in Buenos Aires and in the same year a postdoc at the Institut Henri Poincaré in Paris. In 1961 Weiss became an associate professor and in 1963 a professor at Washington University in St. Louis, where from 1967 to 1970 he was also chair of the mathematics department. He was a visiting professor at several universities, including the University of Geneva (1964–65), the Université Paris-Sud (1970–71), the Scuola Normale Superiore in Pisa (1980), in Madrid and in Beijing. In the academic year 1987–88 he was at MSRI as the organizer of a program in classical analysis.

In 1967 Weiss won the Chauvenet Prize for his article *Harmonic Analysis*. In 1994 he was given honorary doctorates in Milan and Barcelona. In 2012 he became a fellow of the American Mathematical Society.^{[2]}
