Strong limit theorems for orthogonal sequences in von Neumann algebras. (English) Zbl 0601.46058
Let \(\phi\) be a faithful normal state on a von Neumann algebra A. It is proved that if a sequence \(\{x_ n\}\) in A is orthogonal relative to \(\phi\) and \(\sum \phi (x^*_ nx_ n)(\log n/n)^ 2\) is finite, then the sequence \(\{\) 1/n\(\sum^{n}_{k=1}x_ k\}\) of averages converges almost uniformly in A.
