Georges Darmois (24 June 1888 – 3 January 1960) was a French mathematician and statistician. He pioneered in the theory of sufficiency, in stellar statistics, and in factor analysis. He was also one of the first French mathematicians to teach British mathematical statistics.^{[1]}
He is one of the eponyms of the Koopman–Pitman–Darmois theorem and sufficient statistics and exponential families.
Darmois earned his doctorate from the University of Paris in 1921, under supervision of Édouard Goursat. In 1949, he succeeded Maurice René Fréchet on the Chair of Calculus of Probabilities and Mathematical Physics at the University of Paris.^{[2]}
He was elected fellow of the Econometric Society in 1952.^{[3]} In 1955 he was elected as a Fellow of the American Statistical Association.^{[4]}
