Robin Cope Hartshorne ( HARTS-horn; born March 15, 1938) is an American mathematician. Hartshorne is an algebraic geometer who studied with Oscar Zariski, David Mumford, Jean-Pierre Serre and Alexander Grothendieck.

He was a Putnam Fellow in Fall, 1958. He received his Ph.D. in mathematics from Princeton University in 1963 after completing a doctoral dissertation titled "Connectedness of the Hilbert scheme."[1] He then became a Junior Fellow at Harvard University, where he taught for several years. In the 1970s he was appointed to the faculty at the University of California, Berkeley. He is currently[when?] retired.

Hartshorne is the author of the text Algebraic Geometry.

In 2012 he became a fellow of the American Mathematical Society.[2]
