From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Michel Plancherel (16 January 1885 - 4 March 1967) was a Swiss mathematician. He was born in Bussy (Fribourg, Switzerland) and obtained his diploma in mathematics from the University of Fribourg in 1907. He was a professor in Fribourg (1911), and from 1920 at ETH Zurich.

He worked in the areas of mathematical analysis, mathematical physics and algebra, and is known for the Plancherel theorem [1] in harmonic analysis.

Outside of math he was married to Cécile Tercier, had nine children, and presided at the Mission Catholique Française in Zürich.
