Eugen Otto Erwin Netto (30 June 1848 – 13 May 1919) was a German mathematician.He was born in Halle and died in Giessen.Netto's theorem, on the dimension-preserving properties of continuous bijections, is named for Netto.

Netto published this theorem in 1878, in response to Georg Cantor's proof of the existence of discontinuous bijections between the unit interval and unit square.

His proof was not fully rigorous, but its errors were later repaired.
