Prezentare
Marcel Riesz was the younger brother of Frigyes Riesz and won the Loránd Eötvös competition in 1904. He studied at Budapest and was influenced by Féjér . In a joint work with Hardy he introduced Riesz means. Invited by Mittag-Leffler to Sweden in 1908, he spent the rest of his life there. Appointed to Stockholm in 1911 he went to a chair at Lund in 1926.

He has only one joint paper with his brother, written during World War I, on the boundary behaviour of an analytic function. His interests ranged from functional analysis to partial differential equations , mathematical physics, number theory and algebra. He also worked on Clifford algebras and spinors.
