# Yvette Kosmann-Schwarzbach

**Yvette Kosmann-Schwarzbach** (born 30 April 1941)^{[1]} is a French mathematician and professor. She has been teaching mathematics at the Lille University of Science and Technology and at the École polytechnique since 1993. Kosmann-Schwarzbach obtained her doctoral degree in 1970 at the University of Paris under supervision of André Lichnerowicz on a dissertation titled *Dérivées de Lie des spineurs* (Lie derivatives of spinors).^{[2]} She is the author of over fifty articles on differential geometry, algebra and mathematical physics, as well as the co-editor of several books concerning the theory of integrable systems. The Kosmann lift in differential geometry is named after her.^{[3]}^{[4]}
