On the a.e. convergence of Fourier series on unbounded Vilenkin groups

G. Gát


It is well known that the 2nth partial sums of the Walsh-Fourier series of an integrable function converges a.e. to the function. This result has been proved [Sto] by techniques known in the martingale theory. The author gave "purely dyadic harmonic analysis'' proof of this in the former volume of this journal [Gát]. The Vilenkin groups are generalizations of the Walsh group. We prove the a.e. convergence $S_{M_n}f \to f \, (n\to\infty), \, f\in L^1(G_m)$ even in the case when Gm is an unbounded Vilenkin group. The nowelty of this proof is that we use techniques, which are elementary in dyadic harmonic analysis. We do not use any technique in martingale theory used in the former proof [Sto].
