## On the eigenstructure of the Bernstein kernel

Uri Itai

### Abstract

In approximation theory a common technique is to assume duality behavior between the Bernstein operator and the transformation matrix between the standard basis and the Bernstein basis. In this paper we shall produce an example that this assumption is not always correct. In particular, the eigenstructures of the operator and the transformation Matrix are distinguished.
