#### Abstract

The main aim of this paper is to prove that the logarithmic means of quadratical partial sums of the double Walsh-Kaczmarz series does not improve the convergence in measure. In other words, we prove that for any Orlicz space, which is not a subspace of โโ, the set of the functions the logarithmic means of quadratical partial sums of the double Walsh-Kaczmarz series of which converge in measure is of first Baire category.

The logarithmic means and kernels of quadratical partial sums of double Walsh-(Kaczmarz)-Fourier series are given by

It is evident that where denotes the dyadic addition [3]. The th Marcinkiewicz kernels are given by

In 1948 ล neฤญder [5] showed that the inequality holds a.e. for the Walsh-Kaczmarz Dirichlet kernel. This inequality shows that the behavior of the Walsh-Kaczmarz system is worse than the behavior of the Walsh system in the Paley enumeration. This โspreadnessโ property of the kernel makes it easier to construct examples of divergent Fourier series [6]. On the other hand, Schipp [7] and Young [8] in 1974 proved that the Walsh-Kaczmarz system is a convergence system. Skvorcov in 1981 [4] showed that the Fejรฉr means with respect to the Walsh-Kaczmarz system converge uniformly to for any continuous functions . For any integrable functions, Gรกt [9] proved that the Fejรฉr means with respect to the Walsh-Kaczmarz system converge a.e. to the function. Recently, Gรกtโs result was generalized by Simon [10, 11]. The a.e. convergence of the Walsh-Kaczmarz-Marcinkiewicz means of integrable functions was discussed by the second author [12].

The partial sums of the Walsh-Fourier series of a function , converge in measure on [2]. The condition provides convergence in measure on of the rectangular partial sums of double Walsh-Fourier series [13]. The first example of a function from classes wider than with divergent in measure on was obtained in [14, 15]. Moreover, in [16] Tkebuchava proved that in each Orlicz space wider than the set of functions where quadratic Walsh-Fourier sums converge in measure on is of first Baire category (see Goginava [17] for Walsh-Kaczmarz-Fourier series). In the paper [18] it was showed that the Nรถrlund logarithmic means of one-dimensional Walsh-Kaczmarz-Fourier series are of weak type (1,1), and this fact implies that converge in measure on for all functions and converge in measure on for all functions .

At last, we note that the Walsh-Nรถrlund logarithmic means are closer to the partial sums than to the classical logarithmic means or the Fejรฉr means. Namely, it was proved that there exists a function in a certain class of functions and a set with positive measure, such that the Walsh-Nรถrlund logarithmic means of the function diverge on the set [19].

For results with respect to logarithmic means of cubical and rectangular partial sums of two-dimensional Walsh-Fourier series, see [17, 19โ22].

In the present paper we investigate convergence in measure of logarithmic means of quadratical partial sums of double Walsh-Kaczmarz series and prove Theorem 2.1 that is, for any Orlicz space, which is not a subspace of , the set of the functions where logarithmic means converges in measure is of first Baire category. From this result it follows that (Corollary 2.2) in classes wider than there exists functions for which logarithmic means of quadratical partial sums of double Walsh-Kaczmarz series diverge in measure.

Thus, in question of convergence in measure logarithmic means of quadratical partial sums of double Walsh-Kaczmarz series differ from the Marcinkiewicz means and are like the usual quadratical partial sums of double Walsh-Fourier series.

#### 3. Auxiliary Results

It is well-known [2, 3] for the Dirichlet kernel function that for any . Then for these โs we also get where is a nonnegative integer. It is also well-known for the Walsh-Paley-Dirichlet kernel functions the following lower pointwise estimates holds. Let (). Then for any and , we have

Since this inequality plays a prominent role in the proofs of some divergence results concerning the partial sums of the Fourier series, then it seems that it would be useful to get a similar inequality also for the logarithmic kernels. In [20] the first author, Gรกt, and Tkebuchava proved the inequality for all , and . We have the exceptional set , such that it is โrare around zero.โ For set (where denotes the lower integral part of ), and we take a โsmall partโโ of the interval . This way the intervals are defined as follows: The exceptional set is given by

For the logarithmic kernels of quadratical partial sums of double Walsh-Kaczmarz-Fourier series, we prove an analogue result. To do this we need the following lemma of the first author, Gรกt and Tkebuchava [22].

Lemma 3.1 (see [22]). *Let , , and . Then one has

Now, for the Walsh-Kaczmarz logarithmic kernels , we prove the following.

Lemma 3.2. *Let ,โโ for and . Then

First, we discuss . We use equalityโโ(1.13)

If , then (see (1.14))
Moreover, by Lemma 3.1, we have

Now, we discuss by the help of โ(1.13)
Since , for all , thus,

For , we obtain that
Moreover,
Let . Then we have
that is, , .

Now, we introduce the following notation:
and (). A simple consideration gives
It is known [23] that if and , then
Using this inequality, we have that
Moreover,
Analogously,
Taking into account (3.11), we get
Therefore by (3.14)โ(3.29), it follows that
with suitable constants . It is clear that for large enough we have
where is an absolute constant.

We apply the reasoning of [24] formulated as the following proposition in particular case.

Theorem A. *Let be a linear continuous operator, which commutes with family of translations , that is, for all for all . Let and . Then for any under condition, , there exist and , , such that
*

Theorem B. *Let be a sequence of linear continuous operators, acting from Orlicz space into the space . Suppose that there exist the sequence of functions from unit bull of space , and sequences of integers and increasing to infinity such that
**Then โthe set of functions from space , for which the sequence converges in measure to an a.e. finite functionโis of first Baire category in space .*

Theorem GGT. *Let be an Orlicz space, and let be measurable function with condition as . Then there exists Orlicz space , such that as , and for .*

The proof of Theorems B and GGT can be found in [20].

#### 4. Proof of the Theorem

*Proof of Theorem 2.1. *By Theorem B the proof of Theorem 2.1 will be complete if we show that there exist sequences of integers and increasing to infinity, and a sequence of functions from the unit bull of Orlicz space , such that for all

First, we prove that there exists such that

It is easy to show that
Hence, from Lemma 3.2, we can write
for .

Since
for and , from (4.4) we conclude that
Hence, (4.2) is proved.

From the condition of the theorem, we write [1]
Consequently, there exists a sequence of integers increasing to infinity, such that

From (4.2) we write
Then by the virtue of Theorem A, there exists and such that
where .

Set
where
Denote
It is easy to show that
Hence, (4.1) is proved.

Since
Moreover,
From (4.8) we can write

Hence, , and Theorem 2.1 is proved.

The validity of Corollary 2.2 follows immediately from Theorems 2.1 and GGT.
