The Borel property for simple Riesz means. (English) Zbl 0597.10051
Let $$P=(p_ n)$$ be a sequence of positive real numbers. The complex sequence $$(\alpha_ n)$$ is called P-summable, if $$(1/P_ N)\sum^{N}_{n=1}p_ n\alpha_ n$$ converges, where $$P_ N=\sum^{N}_{n=1}p_ n$$. Assuming that P is increasing, it is shown that almost all sequences (with respect to any probability measure on $${\mathbb{C}})$$ are P-summable iff ”Hill’s condition” (H) holds, i.e. $$\sum^{\infty}_{n=1}\exp (-\delta /a_ n)<\infty$$ for all $$\delta >0$$, where $$a_ n=P_ n^{-2}\sum^{n}_{k=1}p^ 2_ k$$. The sufficiency of (H) is due to J. D. Hill [Pac. J. Math. 1, 399-409 (1951; Zbl 0043.286)]. For arbitrary (non-monotonic) weights, (H) is still sufficient, but not necessary. We give a related necessary and sufficient condition.
