On the nonclassical approximation method for periodic functions by trigonometric polynomials



We study the approximation of functions by linear polynomial means of their Fourier series with a function-multiplier φ that is equal to 1 not only at zero, in contrast with classical methods of summability. The exact order of convergence to zero of the sequence
$$ \mathop{\max}\limits_{{x\in \left[ {-\pi, \pi } \right]}}\left| {f(x)-\sum\limits_{{\left| k \right|\leq n}} {\varphi \left( {\frac{{k\pi }}{n}} \right){{\hat{f}}_k}{e^{ikx }}} } \right| $$
(\( {{\hat{f}}_k} \) Fourier coefficients) as n→∞ is obtained. The answer is given in terms of the values of difference operators of a continuous function f and a special K-functional (step of \( \frac{\pi }{n} \)). In addition, we obtain not only the sufficient conditions for φ but the necessary ones as well.
