Alexander Wilhelm von Brill (20 September 1842 – 18 June 1935) was a German mathematician.

Born in Darmstadt, Hesse, Brill was educated at the University of Giessen, where he earned his doctorate under supervision of Alfred Clebsch. He held a chair at the University of Tübingen, where Max Planck was among his students. In 1933, he joined the National Socialist Teachers League as one of the first members from Tübingen.

The London Science Museum contains sliceform objects prepared by Brill and Felix Klein.[1]
