Er schrieb mit seinem Lehrer Zaanen eine Monographie über Riesz-Räume, befasste sich mit Theorie der Banachräume und lokal konvexen Räumen, Maß- und Integrationstheorie und in den 1960er Jahren mit Nichtstandard-Analysis (Einführung Hyperreeller Zahlen mit Ultrapotenzen 1962). Er ist korrespondierendes Mitglied der Königlich Niederländischen Akademie der Wissenschaften.

Luxemburg became a corresponding member of the Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences in 1974. Joseph Dauben (1995) attributes the ultrapower construction of the hyperreal numbers to Luxemburg in 1962. Such a construction was originally introduced by Edwin Hewitt in 1948, and popularized by Luxemburg in the 1960s.
