A pair of compatible variations for Bernstein triangular polynomials

In papers [4] and [6], the Variation Diminition Property of Bernstein polynomials defined on a triangle was studied. It is well known that the sequence of Bezier nets\(\widehat{f_n }\) obtained by elevation formula convergence to the polynomial itself when n goes to infinite. But the Sequence of variation of Bezier nets does not convergence to the variation of the polynomial. This means that variations are not compatible. In this paper, we give a new definition of variation of Bezier net and prove that the inequality of variation diminition holds and the variations are compatible.
