Antoni Marian Lomnicki (17 January 1881 – 4 July 1941) was a Polish mathematician.
Antoni was educated at Jan Kazimierz University in Lwów and the University of Göttingen.
In 1920 he became professor of the Lwów University of Technology.
In 1938 he became a member of the Warsaw Scientific Society (TNW).
He was murdered by the Germans during the Second World War on the Wzgórza Wuleckie in Lwów in the Massacre of Lwów professors.
In December 1944 Stefan Banach wrote the following tribute to Lomnicki:
A native of Lwów, he worked for over twenty years as a mathematics professor at the Lwów University of Technology.
He prepared hundreds of engineers for their profession.
I was his assistant.
He was the first to instil in me the importance and responsibility of a professor’s task.
He was an unrivalled educator, one of the best I ever knew.
He was the author of many popular schoolbooks as well as textbooks on advanced analysis for technologists, surpassing in quality those published abroad.
His work in the field of cartography was at a high level.
Equally effective were his teaching and pedagogic efforts.
Professor Lomnicki had tremendous energy and a great work ethic.
