Richard Kenneth Guy (born 30 September 1916) is a British mathematician, Professor Emeritus in the Department of Mathematics at the University of Calgary. He is known for his work in number theory, geometry, recreational mathematics, combinatorics, and graph theory. He is best known for co-authorship (with John Conway and Elwyn Berlekamp) of Winning Ways for your Mathematical Plays and authorship of Unsolved Problems in Number Theory. He has also published over 300 papers. Guy proposed the partially tongue-in-cheek "Strong Law of Small Numbers," which says there are not enough small integers available for the many tasks assigned to them — thus explaining many coincidences and patterns found among numerous cultures. For this paper he received the MAA Lester R. Ford Award.

Es muy conocido por ser coautor (junto a John Conway y Elwyn Berlekamp) de Winning Ways for your Mathematical Plays y autor de Problemas sin Resolver en Teoría de Números, pero también publicó más de 100 artículos y libros sobre Teoría combinatoria de juegos, Teoría de números y Teoría de grafos.
  • Ha pubblicato oltre 100 lavori e libri sulla teoria dei giochi combinatoria, sulla teoria dei numeri e sulla teoria dei grafi. È noto per essere l'autore del libro Unsolved Problems in Number Theory, libro che raccoglie molte congetture riguardanti la teoria dei numeri, e, insieme a John Conway e Elwyn Berlekamp, di Winning Ways for your Mathematical Plays, un compendio di giochi matematici. Attorno al 1959 ha scoperto, assieme a J. H. Conway e M. Goldberg, un poliedro unistabile con sole 19 facce; non è stato ancora trovato un poliedro unistabile con meno facce.
