Let $E_n(f)_{\alpha,\beta,\gamma}$ denote the error of best approximation by polynomials of degree at most $n$ in the space $L^2(\varpi_{\alpha,\beta,\gamma})$ on the triangle $\{(x,y): x, y \ge 0, x+y \le 1\}$, where $\varpi_{\alpha,\beta,\gamma}(x,y) := x^\alpha y ^\beta (1-x-y)^\gamma$ for $\alpha,\beta,\gamma > -1$. Our main result gives a sharp estimate of $E_n(f)_{\alpha,\beta,\gamma}$ in terms of the error of best approximation for higher order derivatives of $f$ in appropriate Sobolev… Expand

Direct and converse results are achieved relating E n ( f ) L w 2 ( S) to the operators φ ξ r ( x ) ( ∂ ∂ ξ ) r f and corresponding K -functionals, where ξ ∈ E ( S ) and E (S ) are the edges of S. Expand
The Determinant of an Elliptic Sylvesteresque Matrix
We evaluate the determinant of a matrix whose entries are elliptic hypergeometric terms and whose form is reminiscent of Sylvester matrices. A hypergeometric determinant evaluation of a matrix ofExpand
Determinantal elliptic Selberg integrals
The classical Selberg integral contains a power of the Vandermonde determinant. When that power is a square, it is easy to prove Selberg's identity by interpreting it as a determinant of one-variableExpand


Approximation by the Bernstein–Durrmeyer Operator on a Simplex
For the Jacobi-type Bernstein–Durrmeyer operator Mn,κ on the simplex Td of ℝd, we proved that for f∈Lp(Wκ;Td) with 1<p<∞, $$K_{2,\varPhi}\bigl(f,n^{-1}\bigr)_{\kappa,p}\leqExpand
Approximation and Orthogonality in Sobolev Spaces on a Triangle
Approximation by polynomials on a triangle is studied in the Sobolev space $$W_2^r$$W2r that consists of functions whose derivatives of up to r-th order have bounded $$L^2$$L2 norm. The first partExpand
Moduli of smoothness
The book introduces a new way of measuring smoothness. The need for this new concept arises from the failure of the classical moduli of smoothness to solve some basic problems, such as characterizingExpand

Conversion gives an identity equivalent to Frenkel and Turaev's V"910 summation which appears to be the first combinatorial proof of the latter, and at the same time of some important degenerate cases including Jackson's @f"78 and Dougall's F"67 summation. Expand
Weighted Approximation of Functions on the Unit Sphere
Abstract The direct and inverse theorems are established for the best approximation in the weighted Lp space on the unit sphere of Rd+1, in which the weight functions are invariant under finiteExpand
Polynomial Approximation on Polytopes
Polynomial approximation on convex polytopes in d is considered in uniform and Lp-norms. For an appropriate modulus of smoothness matching direct and converse estimates are proven. In the Lp -case soExpand
A proof of a multivariable elliptic summation formula conjectured by Warnaar
We prove a multivariable elliptic analogue of Jackson's 8W7 summation formula, which was recently conjectured by S.O.Warnaar.
The purpose of this article is threefold. First, it provides the reader with a few useful and efficient tools which should enable her/him to evaluate nontrivial determinants for the case such aExpand
