Kenneth C. Millett (born 1941) is a professor of mathematics at the University of California, Santa Barbara.[1] His research concerns low-dimensional topology, knot theory, and the applications of knot theory to DNA structure;[2] his initial is the "M" in the name of the HOMFLY polynomial.[3]

Millett graduated from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 1963 with a bachelor's degree in mathematics.[1] He earned his Ph.D. in 1967 from the University of Wisconsin under the supervision of Edward R. Fadell.[4] After short-term instructor positions at the University of California, Los Angeles and MIT, he joined the UCSB faculty in 1969 and was promoted to professor in 1979.[1]

Millett won the Carl B. Allendoerfer Award of the Mathematical Association of America in 1989 and the Chauvenet Prize in 1991 for a paper on knot theory with W. B. R. Lickorish.[5] He became a fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science in 2000.[1] In 2012, he became one of the inaugural fellows of the American Mathematical Society.[6]
