0. Introduction, Dunford and Schwartz [3; 5] have recently obtained a generalization of an ergodic theorem of E. Hopf [4] to include nonpositive operators in spaces of complex valued functions. Their method of proof is to majorize the operator in question by a positive one, and then to apply Hopf's results. We give a direct proof of a maximal ergodic lemma for operators which are not necessarily positive, in spaces of functions which take their values in an arbitrary Banach space. This lemma is… CONTINUE READING
