### Abstract

It is known that the discrepancy D_{N}{ kx} of the sequence { kx} satisfies ND_{N}{ kx} = O((log N) (log log N) ^{1} ^{+} ^{ε}) a.e. for all ε> 0 , but not for ε= 0. For n_{k}= θ^{k}, θ> 1 we have ND_{N}{ n_{k}x} ≦ (Σ _{θ}+ ε) (2 Nlog log N) ^{1 / 2} a.e. for some 0 < Σ _{θ}< ∞ and N≧ N_{0} if ε> 0 , but not for ε< 0. In this paper we prove, extending results of Aistleitner–Larcher [6], that for any sufficiently smooth intermediate speed Ψ (N) between (log N) (log log N) ^{1} ^{+} ^{ε} and (Nlog log N) ^{1 / 2} and for any Σ > 0 , there exists a sequence { n_{k}} of positive integers such that ND_{N}{ n_{k}x} ≦ (Σ + ε) Ψ (N) eventually holds a.e. for ε> 0 , but not for ε< 0. We also consider a similar problem on the growth of trigonometric sums.

N2 - It is known that the discrepancy DN{ kx} of the sequence { kx} satisfies NDN{ kx} = O((log N) (log log N) 1 + ε) a.e. for all ε> 0 , but not for ε= 0. For nk= θk, θ> 1 we have NDN{ nkx} ≦ (Σ θ+ ε) (2 Nlog log N) 1 / 2 a.e. for some 0 < Σ θ< ∞ and N≧ N0 if ε> 0 , but not for ε< 0. In this paper we prove, extending results of Aistleitner–Larcher [6], that for any sufficiently smooth intermediate speed Ψ (N) between (log N) (log log N) 1 + ε and (Nlog log N) 1 / 2 and for any Σ > 0 , there exists a sequence { nk} of positive integers such that NDN{ nkx} ≦ (Σ + ε) Ψ (N) eventually holds a.e. for ε> 0 , but not for ε< 0. We also consider a similar problem on the growth of trigonometric sums.
