Abstract [en]

This paper reviews Olof Thorin’s contributions to mathematical analysis, actuarial mathematics, and probability theory, though in reversed order. In probability theory he is known for his path-breaking work on infinite divisibility. In actuarial mathematics he contributed significantly to the ruin problem. However, his international fame very much relies on his work in mathematical analysis and his share in the Riesz–Thorin theorem. Data about his life and some personal recollections are also given.
