Leonard James Rogers FRS[1] (30 March 1862, Oxford, England, – 12 September 1933, Oxford, England) was a British mathematician who was the first to discover the Rogers-Ramanujan identity and Hölder's inequality, and who introduced Rogers polynomials.[2] The Rogers–Szegő polynomials are named after him.

From 1888 to 1919 he was Professor of Mathematics at the Yorkshire College (from 1904, the University of Leeds).

He was elected a fellow of the Royal Society in 1924. In the late 1920s, he published in The Mathematical Gazette four notes on geometrical problems, including on Malfatti's Problem.
