French-born American economist, who won the 1983 Nobel Prize in Economics for his fundamental contribution to the theory of general equilibrium.

Debreu’s classic monograph, Theory of Value: An Axiomatic Analysis of Economic Equilibrium, was published in 1959. In it Debreu provided the mathematical underpinnings for the phenomenon of equilibrium in supply and demand that was first articulated by Adam Smith in 1776. Debreu also developed methods by which to analyze the factors that influence equilibrium.

The recipient of numerous awards, Debreu was made an officer of the French Legion of Honour in 1976 and was elected a member of the National Academy of Sciences in 1977.

He died 31 December 2004, Paris.
