On the approximation of analytic functions by the q-Bernstein polynomials in the case q > 1

Sofiya Ostrovska


Since for $q>1,$ the $q$-Bernstein polynomials $B_{n,q}$ are not positive linear operators on $C[0,1],$ the investigation of their convergence properties turns out to be much more difficult than that in the case $0 < q < 1.$ In this paper, new results on the approximation of continuous functions by the $q$-Bernstein polynomials in the case $q>1$ are presented. It is shown that if $f\in C[0,1]$ and admits an analytic continuation $f(z)$ into $\{z:|z| < a\},$ then $B_{n,q}(f;z)\rightarrow f(z)$ as $n\rightarrow \infty,$ uniformly on any compact set in $\{z:|z| < a\}.$
