Abstract

We prove that when $T$ is a contraction on Hilbert space the size of $\lim \sup|((T^\ast)^nh, g)|$ is controlled by that of $\lim \sup|(T^nh, g)|$. We give an application to Fourier-Stieltjes coefficients. Important in the proof is a generalization of the technique of orthogonal projection.
