Timan’s Type Result on Approximation by Algebraic Polynomials

Part of the Operator Theory: Advances and Applications book series (OT, volume 98)


The paper presents two approximation results of the Jackson-Timan type, which were included in my lecture at the All-Union Conference in Approximation Theory (Dniepropetrovsk, June 26–28, 1990).y1 The conference was dedicated to the seventieth birthday of Professor Alexander Timan (26.6.1920–13.8.1988). Unfortunately, proceedings of the conference never appeared because of the well-known events in the former Soviet Union, and only the abstracts were published (see [B3]). Here we present the approximation method which has been used in the proof of these results. In fact, it can be applied to many other approximation problems of such a kind.
