**Christian Reinsch** (* 1934 in Chemnitz) is a German mathematician who works in the area of numerical analysis.

Reinsch began studying physics in 1953 at the Technical University of Munich, graduating in 1958. He received his doctorate in 1961 studying under Heinz Maier-Leibnitz. Among other things, he worked in the area of numerical linear algebra and interpolation with spline functions.
