For each vector $$(\alpha_1,\alpha_2,\ldots, \alpha_d)\in\mathbb{R}^d$$ one defines the shift $$T_\alpha:\mathbb{T}^d\to\mathbb{T}^d$$ on the torus $$\mathbb{T}^d$$, $$T_\alpha(x)=x+\alpha\,\,(\text{mod}\,\,1)$$, i.e., each coordinate of $$x+\alpha$$ is computed modulo 1. The Birkhoff sum of order $$n$$ over the transformation $$T_\alpha$$, $$S_n^\alpha(f)$$, associated to a Lebesgue integrable function $$f:\mathbb{T}^d\to\mathbb{R}$$ is defined by
$S_n^\alpha(f)(x)=\sum_{s=0}^{n-1}f\circ T_\alpha^s=\sum_{s=0}^{n-1}f(x+s\alpha).$ The Birkhoff means $${{1}\over{n}}S_n^\alpha(f)$$ converge uniformly to the spatial mean $$I(f)=\int_{\mathbb{T}^d}f(x)\, dx$$ for each continuous function on $$\mathbb{T}^d$$ iff $$\alpha$$ is irrational (i.e., its coordinates are independent over $$\mathbb{Z}$$). For each function $$f\in L_p(\mathbb{T}^d)$$, $$0<p<\infty$$, the Birkhoff means converge to $$I(f)$$ in $$L_p$$.
The author studies the rate of convergence in the space $$L_p$$ of the Birkhoff means. Namely, one obtains a sharp estimate on this rate of convergence in the case when $$\alpha$$ is badly approximable and $$f$$ is an absolutely continuous periodic function of zero mean or a function in the space of the Bessel potentials.
