## Abstract

Let {a_{k}}_{k≥0} be a sequence of complex numbers. We obtain the necessary and sufficient conditions for the convergence of n^{-1} ∑_{k=0}^{n} a_{k} T^{k}x for every contraction T on a Hilbert space H and every x ∈ H. It is shown that a natural strengthening of the conditions does not yield convergence for all weakly almost periodic operators in Banach spaces, and the relations between the conditions are exhibited. For a strictly increasing sequence of positive integers {k_{j}}, we study the problem of when n^{-1} ∑_{j=1}^{n} T^{kj}x converges to a T-fixed point for every weakly almost periodic T or for every contraction in a Hilbert space and not for every weakly almost periodic operator.
