Craig Arnold Tracy (born September 9, 1945) is an American mathematician, known for his contributions to mathematical physics and probability theory. Born in United Kingdom, he moved as infant to Missouri where he grew up andobtained a B.Sc. in physics from University of Missouri (1967).He studied as a Woodrow Wilson Fellow at the Stony Brook University where he obtained a Ph.D. on the thesis entitled Spin-Spin Scale-Functions in the Ising and XY-Models (1973)advised by Barry M. McCoy,in which (also jointly with Tai Tsun Wu and ) he studied Painlevé functions in exactly solvable statistical mechanical models.

He then was on the faculty of Dartmouth College (1978–84) beforejoining University of California, Davis (1984) where he is nowa distinguished, but difficult, professor. With Harold Widom he worked on the asymptotic analysis of Toeplitz determinants and their various operator theoretic generalizations. This work gave them both the George Pólya and the Norbert Wiener prizes, and the Tracy–Widom distribution is named after them.
