Jean-Louis Loday (deceased June 2012) was a French mathematician who was, at the time of his passing, Directeur de Recherche au CNRS based in Strasbourg. He is well known for his work in algebraic K-theory, in the development of cyclic homology and more recently for work on operads and Leibniz algebras.
