Abstract: Let $ {W_2}\,n\,[f]$ denote the $ {2^n}{\text{th}}$ partial sums of the Walsh-Fourier series of an integrable function $ f$. Let $ {\rho _n}(x)$ represent the ratio $ {W_2}n[f,x]/{2^n}$, for $ x \in [0,1]$, and let $ T(f)$ represent the function $ {(\Sigma \rho _n^2)^{1/2}}$. We prove that $ T(f)$ belongs to $ {L^p}[0,1]$ for all $ 0 < p < \infty$. We observe, using inequalities of Paley and Sunouchi, that the operator $ f \to T(f)$ arises naturally in connection with dyadic differentiation. Namely, if $ f$ is strongly dyadically differentiable (with derivative $ \dot Df$) and has average zero on the interval [0, 1], then the $ {L^p}$ norms of $ f$ and $ T(\dot Df)$ are equivalent when $ 1 < p < \infty $. We improve inequalities implicit in Sunouchi's work for the case $ p = 1$ and indicate how they can be used to estimate the $ {L^1}$ norm of $ T(\dot Df)$ and the dyadic $ {H^1}$ norm of $ f$ by means of mixed norms of certain random Walsh series. An application of these estimates establishes that if $ f$ is strongly dyadically differentiable in dyadic $ {H^1}$, then $ \int_0^1 {\Sigma _{N = 1}^\infty \vert{W_N}[f,x] - {\sigma _N}[f,x]/N\,dx < \infty} $.
