In this paper we consider Stechkin majorant spaces \(\mathcal E_p(\varepsilon )\) such that \(f\in \mathcal E_p(\varepsilon )\) has best trigonometric approximations En(f)p in \(L^p_{2\pi }\), 1 ≤ p ≤, satisfying the inequality En(f)p ≤ n, \(n\in \mathbb Z_+\), where C does not depend on n, εn 0. We prove that the trigonometric system is a basis in these spaces. The general estimates of best approximation in \(\mathcal E_p(\varepsilon )\) including Jackson and Bernstein inequalities are established. For \(\tau _n(f)(x)=\sum ^n_{k=0}a_{nk}S_k(f)(x)\), where Sk(f) are partial Fourier sums of f and {ank : n ≥ 0, 0 ≤ k ≤ n} satisfies certain condition of generalized monotonicity type, some bounds for the degree of approximation \(\|f-\tau _n(f)\|{ }_{\mathcal E_p(\varepsilon )}\) are obtained. The sharpness of such results is proved under some restrictions. Also some applications of obtained results to the approximation in Hölder–Lipschitz spaces are given.
