In this thesis we discuss Petermichls characterization of the Hilbert transform as an average of dyadic shift operators following the presentation by Thomas Hytonen [Hyt]. A linear and bounded operator T in L2(R) that commutes with translations, dilations and anticommutes with reflections must be a constant multiple of Hilbert transform; T = cH. Using this principle Stefanie Petermichl showed that we can write H as a suitable average of dyadic operators [Pet]. Each Dyadic Shift Operator does not have the symmetries that characterize the Hilbert transform, but an average over all random dyadic grids do.
