François d'Aguillon (Aguilonius), (1566 - 1617) was a Flemish mathematician.

Having entered the Society of Jesus in 1586, he was successively professor of philosophy at Douai and rector of the Jesuit College at Antwerp[?]. He wrote a treatise on optics in six books (Antwerp, 1613), notable for containing the principles of stereographic projection.
