Vatroslav Bertić (7 June 1818 – 1901) was a Croatian mathematician.
Bertić was born in Orehovica. His parents were Josip Jakov Bertić and noble Regina Antonija Gregoroczy (Gregurovečki). By His fathers side he was of military background and by his mothers side he was connected with old Croatian nobility like Deželić and Gregurovečki family. He studied technical sciences in Budapest and was later employed by Croatian Ban Josip Jelačić in military. Bertić worked on mathematical education of Croatian people and he made a Croatian word for mathematics - oloslovlje. Bertić was married to Amalija Kaltneker with whom he had five children. He died in Hum Zabočki in 1901.
In 1847 Bertić wrote a book named Samouka – pokus pervi in which he offered a rudimentary algebraic language of “thoughts and concepts” (including variables, constants, equality sign) to which the law of substitution is added, which was the beginning stage of Boolean logic. Bertić made his research independent from George Boole.
