It is proved that the maximal operator of the triangular Cesàro means of a two-dimensional Fourier series is bounded from the periodic Hardy space to for all 2/(2+α)<p≦∞ and, consequently, is of weak type (1,1). As a consequence we obtain that the triangular Cesàro means of a function converge a.e. to f.
A theorem of Ferenc Lukács  states that the partial sums of conjugate Fourier series of periodic Lebesgue integrable functions f diverge at logarithmic rate at the points of discontinuity of first kind of f. F. Móricz  proved an analogous theorem for the rectangular partial sums of bivariate functions. The present paper proves analogues of Móricz's theorem for generalized Cesàro means and for positive linear means.
