Adriaan Vlacq (Goudamarker, 1600 - The Haguemarker, 1667) was a Dutchmarker book publisher and mathematician. Born in Goudamarker, Vlacq published a table of Henry Briggs' logarithms from 1 to 100,000 to 10 decimal places in 1628 in his Arithmetica logarithmica. Briggs' original tables only covered the values 1-20,000 and 90,000 to 100,000 so Vlacq calculated and added 69,999 further values to complete the tables.

In 1632, he settled in Londonmarker but ten years later with the onset of the English Civil War, he moved to Parismarker and later moved to The Haguemarker.

He died at The Hague in 1667.

The crater Vlacqmarker on the Moon is named after him.
