A counting problem in ergodic theory and extrapolation for one-sided weights

The purpose of this paper is to prove that, given a dynamical system (X,M,μ, τ) and 0 < q < 1, the Lorentz spaces L1,q(μ) satisfy the so-called Return Times Property for the Tail, contrary to what happens in the case q = 1. In fact, we consider a more general case than in previous papers since we work with a σ-finite measure μ and a transformation τ which is only Cesàro bounded. The proof uses the extrapolation theory of Rubio de Francia for one-sided weights. These results are of independent interest and can be applied to many other situations.
