French mathematician who studies the theory of nonlinear partial differential equations.

He received the Fields Medal for his mathematical work in 1994 while working at the University of Paris-Dauphine. Lions was the first to give a complete solution to the Boltzmann equation with proof.

In the paper "Viscosity solutions of Hamilton-Jacobi equations" (1983), written with Michael G. Crandall, he introduced the notion of viscosity solutions. This has had an effect on the theory of partial differential equations.
