Enrico Bombieri (born November 26, 1940) is an Italian mathematician, born in Milan. He is now at the Institute for Advanced Study. He is known for work in number theory, algebraic geometry, and mathematical analysis. He was awarded a Fields Medal in 1974.

The Bombieri–Vinogradov theorem is one of the major applications of the large sieve method. It improves Dirichlet's theorem on prime numbers in arithmetic progressions, by showing that by averaging over the modulus over a range, the mean error is much less than can be proved in a given case. This result can sometimes substitute for the still-unproved generalized Riemann hypothesis.

In 1976, he developed the technique known as the asymptotic sieve.E. Bombieri, "The asymptotic sieve", "Mem. Acad. Naz. dei XL", 1/2 (1976) 243–269.]

Bombieri, accomplished also in the arts, explored for wild orchids and other plants as a hobby in the Alps when a young man.
