Positive operators and the ergodic theorem

Ryōtarō Satō

Vol. 76 (1978), No. 1, 215–219
Abstract

Let T be a positive linear operator on L1(X,) satisfying supn(1∕n) i=0n1Ti1 < , where (X,) is a finite measure space. It will be proved that the two following conditions are equivalent: (I) For every f in L(X,) the Cesàro averages of Tnf converge almost everywhere on X. (II) For every f in L1(X,) the Cesàro averages of Tnf converge in the norm topology of L1(X,). As an application of the result, a simple proof of a recent individual ergodic theorem of the author is given.
