Akihiro Kanamori (金森 晶洋, Kanamori Akihiro, born October 23, 1948 in Tokyo) is a Japaneseborn American mathematician. He specializes in set theory and is the author of the monograph on large cardinals, The Higher Infinite.^{[1]} He has written several essays on the history of mathematics, especially set theory.
Kanamori graduated from California Institute of Technology and earned a Ph.D. from the University of Cambridge (King's College), and is a professor of mathematics at Boston University.
With Matthew Foreman, Kanamori is the editor of the Handbook of Set Theory (2010).^{[2]}
