Abstract: This paper is devoted to the study of various maximal ergodic theorems in noncommutative $ L_p$-spaces. In particular, we prove the noncommutative analogue of the classical Dunford-Schwartz maximal ergodic inequality for positive contractions on $ L_p$ and the analogue of Stein's maximal inequality for symmetric positive contractions. We also obtain the corresponding individual ergodic theorems. We apply these results to a family of natural examples which frequently appear in von Neumann algebra theory and in quantum probability.
