Doob's decomposition and Burkholder's inequalities (Martingale theory)

The ``Burkholder inequalities'' referred here are the weak-$L^1$ estimates for the supremum of a martingale transform and for the square function proved by Burkholder (*Ann. Math. Stat.,* **37**, 1966) for $L^1$-bounded discrete time martingales. The original proof was quite sophisticated, while here these inequalities are deduced from an estimate on the (elementary) Doob decomposition of a discrete supermartingale

Comment: This little-known paper would probably deserve a modern translation in continuous time
