Onorato Timothy O'Meara (January 29, 1928 - June 17, 2018) was an American mathematician known for his work in number theory, linear groups and quadratic forms. He was provost emeritus and professor emeritus of mathematics at the University of Notre Dame.

O'Meara was the author of Symplectic Groups, Introduction to Quadratic Forms, and The Classical Groups and K-Theory (co-author, Alexander J. Hahn [de]).

In 2008, the University of Notre Dame Mathematics Library was rededicated and named in O'Meara's honor.

O'Meara died on June 17, 2018, aged 90.[1]
