The paper surveys the main results concerning asymptotic properties of nonlinear operators T in \(L_ 1\), which forms a developing branch of the ergodic theory.
First a nonexpansive operator in \(L_ p\) of a measure space (\(\Omega\),\({\mathfrak a},\mu)\) is defined, and then results are mentioned for order preserving nonexpansive aperiodic operators. Some speed limit operators are discussed next. One theorem is then mentioned on the problem of a.e. convergence. New results regarding disjointly additive operators are also discussed. The paper concludes by mentioning several papers where nonlinear ergodic theorems are discussed.
