Dieter Jungnickel (born March 20, 1952 in Berlin ) is a German mathematician who deals with combinatorics .

After graduating from high school in Steglitz and winning first prize in the federal mathematics competition in 1971, Jungnickel studied at the Free University of Berlin as a scholarship holder of the German National Academic Foundation . There he completed his diploma in mathematics in 1975 and received his doctorate from Hanfried Lenz in 1976 ( construction of transitive incidence structures with difference methods ) and completed his habilitation in 1978 at the Free University of Berlin. From 1980 he was professor at the University of Gießen and from 1993 professor in Augsburg (chair for discrete mathematics , optimization and operations research ). He is busy u. a. with theory of designs (such as difference sets , Latin squares ), coding theory, finite projective planes, structure of finite bodies and combinatorial optimization problems.

In 1980 he received a Heisenberg grant . He was awarded the 2018 Euler Medal .
