Here we present the quantitative approximation of positive sublinear operators to the unit operator. These are given a precise Choquet integral interpretation. Initially we start with the study of the rate of the convergence of the well-known Bernstein–Kantorovich–Choquet and Bernstein–Durrweyer–Choquet polynomial Choquet-integral operators. Then we study the very general comonotonic positive sublinear operators based on the representation theorem of [9]. We finish with the approximation by the very general direct Choquet-integral form positive sublinear operators. All approximations are given via inequalities involving the modulus of continuity of the approximated function or its higher order derivative.
