Approximation by Nörlund means of Walsh-Fourier series. (English) Zbl 0757.42009

The authors prove under reasonable assumptions that the Nörlund kernel is quasi-positive. They use this to study the rate of approximation by Nörlund means for Walsh-Fourier series of a function in \(L^ p\) or \(\text{Lip}(\alpha,p)\) for \(\alpha>0\) and \(1\leq p\leq\infty\). These results generalize earlier work on Cesàro means by Yano, Jastrebova, and Skvortsov. This paper is very well written and contains two open problems near the end.
