Some approximation results on Bernstein-Schurer operators defined by \((p,q)\)-integers


Recently, Mursaleen et al. (On \((p,q)\)-analogue of Bernstein operators, arXiv:1503.07404) introduced and studied the \((p,q)\)-analog of Bernstein operators by using the idea of \((p,q)\)-integers. In this paper, we generalize the q-Bernstein-Schurer operators using \((p,q)\)-integers and obtain a Korovkin type approximation theorem. Furthermore, we obtain the convergence of the operators by using the modulus of continuity and prove some direct theorems.

Introduction and preliminaries

In 1912, Bernstein [1] introduced the following sequence of operators \(B_{n}:C[0,1] \to C[0,1]\) defined for any \(n \in\mathbb{N} \) and \(f \in C[0,1]\):

$$ B_{n}(f;x)=\sum_{k=0}^{n} \binom{n}{k}x^{k}(1-x)^{n-k} f \biggl( \frac{k}{n} \biggr),\quad x \in[0,1]. $$

By applying the idea of q-integers, the q-Bernstein operators were introduced by Lupaş [2] and later by Philip [3]. Since then, many authors introduced q-generalization of various operators and investigated several approximation properties. For instance, the q-analog of Stancu-Beta operators in [4] and [5]; the q-analog of Bernstein-Kantorovich operators in [6]; the q-Baskakov-Kantorovich operators in [7]; the q-Szász-Mirakjan operators in [8]; the q-Bleimann-Butzer-Hahn operators in [9] and in [10]; the q-analog of Baskakov and Baskakov-Kantorovich operators in [11]; the q-analog of Szász-Kantorovich operators in [12]; and the q-analog of generalized Bernstein-Schurer operators in [13]. Besides this, we also refer to some recent related work on this topic: e.g. [14] and [15].

First we give here some notations on the \((p,q)\)-calculus.

The \((p,q)\)-integer was introduced in order to generalize or unify several forms of q-oscillator algebras well known in the earlier physics literature related to the representation theory of single parameter quantum algebras [16]. The \((p,q)\)-integer \([n]_{p,q}\) is defined by

$$ {}[ n]_{p,q}=\frac{p^{n}-q^{n}}{p-q},\quad n=0,1,2,\ldots, 0< q< p\leq 1. $$

The \((p,q)\)-binomial expansion is

$$ (x+y)_{p,q}^{n}:=(x+y) (px+qy) \bigl(p^{2}x+q^{2}y \bigr)\cdots\bigl(p^{n-1}x+q^{n-1}y\bigr) $$

and the \((p,q)\)-binomial coefficients are defined by

$$ \left [ \begin{matrix} n \\ k\end{matrix} \right ] _{p,q}:= \frac{[n]_{p,q}!}{[k]_{p,q}![n-k]_{p,q}!}. $$

Details on the \((p,q)\)-calculus can be found in [17]. For \(p=1\), all the notions of the \((p,q)\)-calculus are reduced to the q-calculus [18].

In 1962, Schurer [19] introduced and studied the operators \(S_{m,\ell }:C[0,\ell+1]\rightarrow C[0,1]\) defined by

$$ S_{m,\ell}(f;x)=\sum_{k=0}^{m+\ell} \left ( \begin{matrix} m+\ell \\ k\end{matrix} \right ) x^{k}(1-x)^{m+\ell-k}f \biggl( \frac{k}{m} \biggr) ,\quad x \in {}[0,1], $$

for any \(m\in\mathbb{N}\) and fixed \(\ell\in\mathbb{N}\).

The q-analog of the Bernstein-Schurer operators is defined as follows (cf. [20]):

$$ \tilde{B}_{m,\ell}(f;q;x)=\sum_{k=0}^{m+\ell} \left [ \begin{matrix} m+\ell\\ k\end{matrix} \right ] _{q}x^{k}\prod_{s=0}^{m+\ell-k-1} \bigl(1-q^{s}x\bigr) f \biggl( \frac{[k]_{q} }{[m]_{q}} \biggr) ,\quad x \in[0,1], $$

for any \(m\in\mathbb{N}\), \(f \in C[0,\ell+1]\), and fixed .

Recently, Mursaleen et al. [21] applied \((p,q)\)-calculus in approximation theory and introduced first \((p,q)\)-analog of Bernstein operators. They have also introduced and studied the approximation properties of the \((p,q)\)-analog of the Bernstein-Stancu operators in [22].

In this paper, we introduce the \((p,q)\)-analog of these operators. We investigate some approximation properties of these operators and obtain the rate of convergence by using the modulus of continuity. We also establish some direct theorems.

Construction of \((p,q)\)-Bernstein-Schurer operators

Let \(0< q< p\leq1\). We construct the class of generalized \((p,q)\)-Bernstein-Schurer operators as follows:

$$ {B}_{m,\ell}^{p,q}(f;x)=\sum_{k=0}^{m+\ell} \left [ \begin{matrix} m+\ell\\ k\end{matrix} \right ] _{p,q}x^{k} \prod_{s=0}^{m+\ell-k-1} \bigl(p^{s}-q^{s} x\bigr) f \biggl(\frac {[k]_{p,q}}{[m]_{p,q}} \biggr), \quad x \in[0,1], $$

for any \(m \in\mathbb{N}\), \(f \in C[0,\ell+1]\), and fixed . Clearly, the operators defined by (2.1) are linear and positive. If we put \(p=1\) in (2.1), then the \((p,q)\)-Schurer operators are reduced to the q-Bernstein-Schurer operators.

Lemma 2.1

For \({B}_{m,\ell}^{p,q}(\cdot;\cdot)\) given by (2.1), we have the following identities:

  1. (i)


  2. (ii)

    \({B}_{m,\ell}^{p,q}(e_{1};x)=\frac{[m+\ell ]_{p,q}}{[m]_{p,q}}x\);

  3. (iii)

    \({B}_{m,\ell}^{p,q}(e_{2};x)=\frac{[m+\ell]_{p,q} (p x+(1-x) )_{p,q}^{m+\ell-1}}{[m]_{p,q}^{2}}x+ \frac{[m+\ell ]_{p,q}[m+\ell-1]_{p,q}}{[m]_{p,q}^{2}} q x^{2}\);

  4. (iv)

    \({B}_{m,\ell}^{p,q}(e_{3};x)=\frac{[m+\ell]_{p,q} }{[m]_{p,q}^{3}} (p^{2} x+(1-x) )_{p,q}^{m+\ell-1}x +q(q+2p)\frac{[m+\ell]_{p,q}[m+\ell-1]_{p,q} }{[m]_{p,q}^{3}} (p x+ (1-x) )_{p,q}^{m+\ell-2} x^{2} +\frac{[m+\ell]_{p,q}[m+\ell -1]_{p,q}[m+\ell-2]_{p,q}}{[m]_{p,q}^{3}}q^{3}x^{3}\),

where \(e_{j}(t)=t^{j}\), \(j=0,1,2, \ldots\) .


  1. (i)

    For \(0< q< p\leq1\) we use the well-known identity from [21]

    $$ \sum_{k=0}^{n} \left [ \begin{matrix} n \\ k\end{matrix} \right ] _{p,q}x^{k} \prod _{s=0}^{n-k-1}\bigl(p^{s}-q^{s} x\bigr)=1,\quad x \in[0,1]. $$

    Suppose we choose \(n=m+\ell\).


    $$ (1-x)_{p,q}^{m+\ell-k}=\prod_{s=0}^{m+\ell-k-1} \bigl(p^{s}-q^{s} x\bigr), $$

    we get

    $$ \sum_{k=0}^{m+\ell} \left [ \begin{matrix} m+\ell\\ k\end{matrix} \right ] _{p,q}x^{k} \prod _{s=0}^{m+\ell-k-1}\bigl(p^{s}-q^{s} x\bigr)=1. $$

    Consequently, \({B}_{m,\ell}^{p,q}(e_{0};x)=1\).

  2. (ii)

    Clearly we have

    $$\begin{aligned} {B}_{m,\ell}^{p,q}(e_{1};x) =& \sum _{k=1}^{m+\ell} \left [ \begin{matrix} m+\ell\\ k\end{matrix} \right ] _{p,q}x^{k} \prod _{s=0}^{m+\ell-k-1}\bigl(p^{s}-q^{s} x \bigr) \frac {[k]_{p,q}}{[m]_{p,q}} \\ =& x \sum_{k=0}^{m+\ell-1} \left [ \begin{matrix} m+\ell\\ k+1\end{matrix} \right ] _{p,q}x^{k} \prod _{s=0}^{m+\ell-k-2}\bigl(p^{s}-q^{s} x\bigr) \frac {[k+1]_{p,q}}{[m]_{p,q}}\quad\{\mbox{as } k\to k+1\} \\ =& x \frac{[m+\ell]_{p,q}}{[m]_{p,q}}\sum_{k=0}^{m+\ell-1} \left [ \begin{matrix} m+\ell-1 \\ k\end{matrix} \right ] _{p,q}x^{k} \prod_{s=0}^{m+\ell-k-2} \bigl(p^{s}-q^{s} x\bigr) \\ =& x\frac{[m+\ell]_{p,q}}{[m]_{p,q}}. \end{aligned}$$
  3. (iii)
    $$\begin{aligned} {B}_{m,\ell}^{p,q}(e_{2};x) =& \sum _{k=1}^{m+\ell} \left [ \begin{matrix} m+\ell\\ k\end{matrix} \right ] _{p,q}x^{k} \prod _{s=0}^{m+\ell-k-1}\bigl(p^{s}-q^{s} x \bigr) \frac {[k]_{p,q}^{2}}{[m]_{p,q}^{2}} \\ =& \frac{[m+\ell]_{p,q}}{[m]_{p,q}^{2}} \sum_{k=1}^{m+\ell} \left [ \begin{matrix} m+\ell-1 \\ k-1\end{matrix} \right ] _{p,q}\\ &{}\times x^{k} \prod_{s=0}^{m+\ell-k-1} \bigl(p^{s}-q^{s} x\bigr) [k]_{p,q}\quad\bigl\{ \mbox{using } [k]_{p,q}^{2}=[k]_{p,q}.[k]_{p,q} \bigr\} \\ =& \frac{[m+\ell]_{p,q}}{[m]_{p,q}^{2}} \sum_{k=1}^{m+\ell} \left [ \begin{matrix} m+\ell-1 \\ k-1\end{matrix} \right ] _{p,q}\\ &{}\times x^{k} \prod_{s=0}^{m+\ell-k-1} \bigl(p^{s}-q^{s} x\bigr) \bigl(p^{k-1}+q[k-1]_{p,q} \bigr), \end{aligned}$$

    by using \([k]_{p,q}=p^{k-1}+q[k-1]_{p,q}\).

    Therefore we have

    $$\begin{aligned} {B}_{m,\ell}^{p,q}(e_{2};x) ={}&\frac{[m+\ell]_{p,q}}{[m]_{p,q}^{2}} \sum _{k=1}^{m+\ell} \left [ \begin{matrix} m+\ell-1 \\ k-1\end{matrix} \right ] _{p,q}x^{k} p^{k-1} \prod_{s=0}^{m+\ell-k-1} \bigl(p^{s}-q^{s} x\bigr) \\ &{}+ \frac{[m+\ell]_{p,q}}{[m]_{p,q}^{2}} \sum_{k=1}^{m+\ell} \left [ \begin{matrix} m+\ell-1 \\ k-1\end{matrix} \right ] _{p,q}x^{k} q[k-1]_{p,q} \prod _{s=0}^{m+\ell-k-1}\bigl(p^{s}-q^{s} x \bigr) \\ ={}& x\frac{[m+\ell]_{p,q}}{[m]_{p,q}^{2}} \sum_{k=0}^{m+\ell-1} \left [ \begin{matrix} m+\ell-1 \\ k\end{matrix} \right ] _{p,q}x^{k} p^{k} \prod _{s=0}^{m+\ell-k-2}\bigl(p^{s}-q^{s} x \bigr) \\ &{}+q\frac{[m+\ell]_{p,q}}{[m]_{p,q}^{2}} \sum_{k=2}^{m+\ell} \left [ \begin{matrix} m+\ell-1 \\ k-1\end{matrix} \right ] _{p,q}x^{k} [k-1]_{p,q} \prod _{s=0}^{m+\ell-k-1}\bigl(p^{s}-q^{s} x \bigr) \\ ={}& x\frac{[m+\ell]_{p,q}}{[m]_{p,q}^{2}} \sum_{k=0}^{m+\ell-1} \left [ \begin{matrix} m+\ell-1 \\ k\end{matrix} \right ] _{p,q}(px)^{k} (1-x)_{p,q}^{m+\ell-k-1} \\ &{} +q\frac{[m+\ell]_{p,q}[m+\ell-1]_{p,q}}{[m]_{p,q}^{2}} \sum_{k=2}^{m+\ell} \left [ \begin{matrix} m+\ell-2 \\ k-2\end{matrix} \right ] _{p,q}x^{k} \prod_{s=0}^{m+\ell-k-1} \bigl(p^{s}-q^{s} x\bigr) \\ ={}&\frac{[m+\ell]_{p,q} (px+(1-x) )_{p,q}^{m+\ell -1}}{[m]_{p,q}^{2}}x\\ &{}+ x^{2}q\frac{[m+\ell]_{p,q}[m+\ell-1]_{p,q}}{[m]_{p,q}^{2}} \sum _{k=0}^{m+\ell-2} \left [ \begin{matrix} m+\ell-2 \\ k-2\end{matrix} \right ] _{p,q}\\ &{}\times x^{k} \prod _{s=0}^{m+\ell-k-3}\bigl(p^{s}-q^{s} x\bigr). \end{aligned}$$

    Hence the desired result is proved.

  4. (iv)
    $$\begin{aligned} B_{m,\ell}^{p,q}(e_{3};x) =& \sum _{k=1}^{m+\ell} \left [ \begin{matrix} m+\ell\\ k\end{matrix} \right ] _{p,q}x^{k} \prod _{s=0}^{m+\ell-k-1}\bigl(p^{s}-q^{s} x \bigr) \frac {[k]_{p,q}^{3}}{[m]_{p,q}^{3}} \\ =& \frac{[m+\ell]_{p,q}}{[m]_{p,q}^{3}} \sum_{k=1}^{m+\ell} \left [ \begin{matrix} m+\ell-1 \\ k-1\end{matrix} \right ] _{p,q}x^{k} \prod_{s=0}^{m+\ell-k-1} \bigl(p^{s}-q^{s} x\bigr) [k]_{p,q}^{2} \\ =& \frac{[m+\ell]_{p,q}}{[m]_{p,q}^{3}} \sum_{k=1}^{m+\ell} \left [ \begin{matrix} m+\ell-1 \\ k-1\end{matrix} \right ] _{p,q}x^{k} p^{2(k-1)} \prod _{s=0}^{m+\ell-k-1}\bigl(p^{s}-q^{s} x \bigr) \\ &{}+\frac{[m+\ell]_{p,q}}{[m]_{p,q}^{3}} \sum_{k=1}^{m+\ell} \left [ \begin{matrix} m+\ell-1 \\ k-1\end{matrix} \right ] _{p,q}x^{k} q^{2} [k-1]_{p,q}^{2} \prod_{s=0}^{m+\ell-k-1}\bigl(p^{s}-q^{s} x\bigr) \\ &{}+2q\frac{[m+\ell]_{p,q}}{[m]_{p,q}^{3}} \sum_{k=1}^{m+\ell} \left [ \begin{matrix} m+\ell-1 \\ k-1\end{matrix} \right ] _{p,q}x^{k} p^{k-1}[k-1]_{p,q} \prod _{s=0}^{m+\ell -k-1}\bigl(p^{s}-q^{s} x\bigr). \end{aligned}$$

    A small calculation shows that

    $$\begin{aligned}& \begin{aligned} &\frac{[m+\ell]_{p,q}}{[m]_{p,q}^{3}} \sum _{k=1}^{m+\ell} \left [ \begin{matrix} m+\ell-1 \\ k-1\end{matrix} \right ] _{p,q}x^{k} p^{2(k-1)} \prod _{s=0}^{m+\ell-k-1}\bigl(p^{s}-q^{s} x\bigr) \\ &\quad=x\frac{[m+\ell]_{p,q}}{[m]_{p,q}^{3}} \bigl( p^{2} x + (1-x) \bigr)_{p,q}^{m+\ell-1}, \end{aligned} \\& \begin{aligned} &\frac{[m+\ell]_{p,q}}{[m]_{p,q}^{3}} \sum _{k=1}^{m+\ell} \left [ \begin{matrix} m+\ell-1 \\ k-1\end{matrix} \right ] _{p,q}x^{k} q^{2} [k-1]_{p,q}^{2} \prod_{s=0}^{m+\ell-k-1} \bigl(p^{s}-q^{s} x\bigr) \\ &\quad=x^{2}q^{2}\frac{[m+\ell]_{p,q}[m+\ell-1]_{p,q}}{[m]_{p,q}^{3}} \bigl( px+(1-x) \bigr)_{p,q}^{m+\ell-2} \\ &\qquad {}+x^{3}q^{3} \frac{[m+\ell]_{p,q}[m+\ell -1]_{p,q} [m+\ell-2]_{p,q}}{[m]_{p,q}^{3}}. \end{aligned} \end{aligned}$$


    $$\begin{aligned} &2q\frac{[m+\ell]_{p,q}}{[m]_{p,q}^{3}} \sum_{k=1}^{m+\ell} \left [ \begin{matrix} m+\ell-1 \\ k-1\end{matrix} \right ] _{p,q}x^{k} p^{k-1}[k-1]_{p,q} \prod _{s=0}^{m+\ell -k-1}\bigl(p^{s}-q^{s} x\bigr) \\ &\quad=2pq x^{2}\frac{[m+\ell]_{p,q}[m+\ell-1]_{p,q}}{[m]_{p,q}^{3}} \bigl(px+(1-x) \bigr)_{p,q}^{m+\ell-2}. \end{aligned}$$

This completes the proof. □

Lemma 2.2

Let \({B}_{m,\ell}^{p,q}(\cdot;\cdot)\) be given by (2.1). Then, for any \(x \in[0,1]\) and \(0< q< p\leq1\), we have the following identities:

  1. (i)

    \({B}_{m,\ell}^{p,q}(e_{1}-1;x)=\frac{[m+\ell ]_{p,q}}{[m]_{p,q}}x-1\);

  2. (ii)

    \({B}_{m,\ell}^{p,q}(e_{1}-x;x)= (\frac{[m+\ell ]_{p,q}}{[m]_{p,q}}-1 )x \);

  3. (iii)
    $$\begin{aligned} &{B}_{m,\ell}^{p,q}\bigl((e_{1}-x)^{2};x \bigr)\\ &\quad =\frac{[m+\ell]_{p,q}}{[m]_{p,q}^{2}} \bigl(px+(1-x) \bigr)_{p,q}^{m+\ell-1}x \\ &\qquad {}+ \biggl( \biggl(\frac{[m+\ell]_{p,q}}{[m]_{p,q}}-1 \biggr)^{2} + \frac{[m+\ell]_{p,q}}{[m]_{p,q}^{2}} \bigl( q[m+\ell-1]_{p,q}-[m+\ell]_{p,q} \bigr) \biggr)x^{2}. \end{aligned}$$

On the convergence of \((p,q)\)-Bernstein-Schurer operators

Let \(f \in C[0,\gamma]\). The modulus of continuity of f, denoted by \(\omega(f,\delta)\), gives the maximum oscillation of f in any interval of length not exceeding \(\delta>0\) and it is given by the relation

$$ \omega(f,\delta)=\sup_{ \vert y-x\vert \leq\delta} \bigl\vert f(y)-f(x)\bigr\vert ,\quad x,y \in[0,\gamma]. $$

It is well known that \(\lim_{\delta\to0+}\omega(f,\delta)=0\) for \(f \in C[0, \gamma]\) and for any \(\delta>0\) one has

$$ \bigl\vert f(y)- f(x)\bigr\vert \leq \biggl( \frac{ \vert y-x\vert }{\delta}+1 \biggr)\omega(f,\delta). $$

For \(q \in(0,1)\) and \(p \in(q ,1]\) obviously we have \(\lim_{m \to \infty}[m]_{p,q}=\frac{1}{p-q}\). In order to obtain the convergence results of the operator \({B}_{m,\ell}^{p,q}\), we take a sequence \(q_{m} \in (0,1)\) and \(p_{m} \in(q_{m},1]\) such that \(\lim_{m \to\infty}p_{m}=1\) and \(\lim_{m \to \infty}q_{m}=1\), so we get \(\lim_{m \to\infty}[m]_{p_{m},q_{m}}=\infty\).

Theorem 3.1

Let \(p=p_{m}\), \(q=q_{m}\) satisfying \(0< q_{m}< p_{m}\leq1\) such that \(\lim_{m \to \infty}p_{m}=1\), \(\lim_{m \to\infty}q_{m}=1\). Then for each \(f \in C[0,\ell+1]\),

$$ \lim_{m \to\infty}{B}_{m,\ell}^{p_{m},q_{m}}(f;x)=f, $$

is uniformly on \([0,1]\).


The proof is based on the well-known Korovkin theorem regarding the convergence of a sequence of linear and positive operators, so it is enough to prove the conditions

$$ {B}_{m,\ell}^{p_{m},q_{m}}(e_{j};x)=x^{j},\quad j=0,1,2, \{\mbox{as } m \to \infty\} $$

uniformly on \([0,1]\).

Clearly we have

$$ \lim_{m \to\infty}{B}_{m,\ell}^{p_{m},q_{m}}(e_{0};x)=1. $$

By making a simple calculation we get

$$ \lim_{m \to\infty} \frac{[m+\ell ]_{p_{m},q_{m}}}{[m]_{p_{m},q_{m}}}=1,\quad\mbox{as }0< q_{m}< p_{m} \leq1. $$

Since \(0< q_{m}< p_{m} \leq1\), we get

$$ \lim_{m \to\infty} \frac{[m+\ell]_{p_{m},q_{m}}}{[m]_{p_{m},q_{m}}^{2}}=0. $$

Hence we have

$$\begin{aligned}& \lim_{m \to\infty}{B}_{m,\ell}^{p_{m},q_{m}}(e_{1};x)=x, \\& \lim_{m \to\infty}{B}_{m,\ell}^{p_{m},q_{m}}(e_{2};x)=x^{2}. \end{aligned}$$


Theorem 3.2

If \(f \in C[0,\ell+1]\), then

$$ \bigl\vert {B}_{m,\ell}^{p,q}(f;x)-f(x)\bigr\vert \leq2{ \omega}_{f}(\delta_{m}), $$


$$ \begin{aligned} \delta_{m}={}& x\biggl\vert \frac{[m+\ell]_{p,q}}{[m]_{p,q}}-1\biggr\vert \\ &{}+ \sqrt{\frac{[m+\ell]_{p,q}}{[m]_{p,q}}}\cdot\sqrt{\frac{x^{2} (q[m+\ell -1]_{p,q}-[m+\ell]_{p,q} )+ x (px+(1-x) )_{p,q}^{m+\ell-1}}{[m]_{p,q}}}. \end{aligned} $$


$$\begin{aligned} \bigl\vert {B}_{m,\ell}^{p,q}(f;x)-f(x)\bigr\vert \leq&\sum _{k=0}^{m+\ell} \left [ \begin{matrix} m+\ell\\ k\end{matrix} \right ] _{p,q}x^{k} \prod _{s=0}^{m+\ell-k-1}\bigl(p^{s}-q^{s} x\bigr)\biggl\vert f \biggl(\frac{[k]_{p,q}}{[m]_{p,q}} \biggr)-f(x)\biggr\vert \\ \leq& \sum_{k=0}^{m+\ell} \left [ \begin{matrix} m+\ell\\ k\end{matrix} \right ] _{p,q}x^{k} \prod _{s=0}^{m+\ell-k-1}\bigl(p^{s}-q^{s} x\bigr) \biggl(\frac {\vert \frac{[k]_{p,q}}{[m]_{p,q}} -x\vert }{\delta}+1 \biggr)\omega (f,\delta). \end{aligned}$$

By using the Cauchy inequality and Lemma 2.1, we have

$$\begin{aligned} &\bigl\vert {B}_{m,\ell}^{p,q}(f;x)-f(x)\bigr\vert \\ & \quad \leq \Biggl( \frac {1}{\delta}\Biggl\{ \sum _{k=0}^{m+\ell} \left [ \begin{matrix} m+\ell\\ k\end{matrix} \right ] _{p,q}x^{k} \biggl(\frac{[k]_{p,q}}{[m]_{p,q}} -x \biggr)^{2} \prod_{s=0}^{m+\ell-k-1} \bigl(p^{s}-q^{s} x\bigr) \Biggr\} ^{\frac{1}{2}}+1 \Biggr)\omega(f,\delta) \\ &\quad = \biggl\{ \frac{1}{\delta} \bigl( {B}_{m,\ell}^{p,q}(e_{2};x)-2x{B}_{m,\ell}^{p,q}(e_{1};x) +x^{2}{B}_{m,\ell}^{p,q}(e_{0};x) \bigr)^{\frac{1}{2}}+1 \biggr\} \omega(f,\delta) \\ &\quad = \biggl\{ \frac{1}{\delta} \biggl( \frac{[m+\ell]_{p,q} (p x+(1-x) )_{p,q}^{m+\ell-1}}{[m]_{p,q}^{2}}x\\ &\qquad {}+ x^{2} \biggl(\frac{[m+\ell]_{p,q}[m+\ell-1]_{p,q}}{[m]_{p,q}^{2}} q -2 \frac{[m+\ell ]_{p,q}}{[m]_{p,q}}+1 \biggr) \biggr)^{\frac{1}{2}}+1 \biggr\} \omega(f,\delta) \\ &\quad = \biggl\{ \frac{1}{\delta} \biggl( \biggl( x \biggl(\frac{[m+\ell ]_{p,q}}{[m]_{p,q}}-1 \biggr) \biggr)^{2}\\ &\qquad {}+ \biggl(\sqrt{\frac{[m+\ell ]_{p,q}}{[m]_{p,q}}}\\ &\qquad {}\cdot \sqrt {\frac{x^{2} (q[m+\ell-1]_{p,q}-[m+\ell]_{p,q} )+ x (px+(1-x) )_{p,q}^{m+\ell-1}}{[m]_{p,q}}} \biggr)^{2} \biggr)^{\frac{1}{2}}+1 \biggr\} \omega(f,\delta) \\ &\quad \leq \biggl\{ \frac{1}{\delta} \biggl( x \biggl\vert \frac{[m+\ell ]_{p,q}}{[m]_{p,q}}-1 \biggr\vert \\ &\qquad {}+ \sqrt{\frac{[m+\ell ]_{p,q}}{[m]_{p,q}}} \\ &\qquad {}\cdot\sqrt{\frac{x^{2} (q[m+\ell-1]_{p,q}-[m+\ell]_{p,q} )+ x (px+(1-x) )_{p,q}^{m+\ell-1}}{[m]_{p,q}}} \biggr)+1 \biggr\} \omega(f,\delta), \end{aligned}$$

by using \((a^{2}+b^{2})^{\frac{1}{2}} \leq( \vert a\vert + \vert b\vert )\).

Hence we obtain the desired result by choosing \(\delta=\delta_{m}\). □

Direct theorems on \((p,q)\)-Bernstein-Schurer operators

The Peetre K-functional is defined by

$$ K_{2}(f,\delta)=\inf \bigl\{ \bigl(\Vert f-g\Vert +\delta\bigl\Vert g^{\prime\prime}\bigr\Vert \bigr) :g\in\mathcal{W}^{2} \bigr\} , $$


$$ \mathcal{W}^{2}= \bigl\{ g\in C[0,\ell+1]:g^{\prime},g^{\prime \prime} \in C[0,\ell+1] \bigr\} . $$

Then there exists a positive constant \(\mathcal{C}>0\) such that \(K_{2}(f,\delta)\leq\mathcal{C}\omega_{2}(f,\delta^{\frac{1}{2}})\), \(\delta>0\), where the second order modulus of continuity is given by

$$ \omega_{2}\bigl(f,\delta^{\frac{1}{2}}\bigr)=\sup _{0< h< \delta^{\frac{1}{2}}}\sup_{x\in{}[0,\ell+1]}\bigl\vert f(x+2h)-2f(x+h)+f(x)\bigr\vert . $$

Theorem 4.1

Let \(f \in C[0,\ell+1]\), \(g^{\prime}\in C[0,\ell+1]\) and satisfying \(0< q< p \leq1\). Then for all \(n \in\mathbb{N}\) there exists a constant \(\mathcal{C}>0\) such that

$$ \biggl\vert {B}_{m,\ell}^{p,q}(f;x)-f(x)- x g^{\prime}(x) \biggl( \frac {[m+\ell-1]_{p,q}}{[m]_{p,q}}-1 \biggr) \biggr\vert \leq\mathcal {C} \omega_{2} \bigl(f, \delta_{m}(x)\bigr), $$


$$\begin{aligned} \delta_{m}^{2}(x)={}&\frac{[m+\ell-1]_{p,q}}{[m]_{p,q}^{2}} \bigl( px+(1-x) \bigr)_{p,q}^{m+\ell-1}x \\ &{}+ \biggl( \biggl( \frac{[m+\ell]_{p,q}}{[m]_{p,q}}-1 \biggr)^{2} + \frac{[m+\ell]_{p,q}}{[m]_{p,q}^{2}} \bigl( q[m+\ell-1]_{p,q}-[m+\ell ]_{p,q} \bigr) \biggr)x^{2}. \end{aligned}$$


Let \(g \in\mathcal{W}^{2}\). Then from the Taylor expansion, we get

$$ g(t) = g(x)+ g^{\prime}(x) (t-x)+\int_{x}^{t}(t-u)g^{\prime\prime}(u)\, \mathrm{d}u,\quad t \in[0,\mathcal{A}], \mathcal{A} >0. $$

Now by Lemma 2.1, we have

$$\begin{aligned}& {B}_{m,\ell}^{p,q}(g;x) = g(x)+xg^{\prime}(x) \biggl( \frac{[m+\ell ]_{p,q}}{[m]_{p,q}}-1 \biggr)+ {B}_{m,\ell}^{p,q} \biggl(\int _{x}^{t}(e_{1}-u)g^{\prime \prime}(u)\, \mathrm{d}u;p,q;x \biggr), \\& \begin{aligned} \biggl\vert {B}_{m,\ell}^{p,q}(g;x)-g(x)-xg^{\prime}(x) \biggl( \frac{[m+\ell]_{p,q}}{[m]_{p,q}}-1 \biggr)\biggr\vert &\leq {B}_{m,\ell }^{p,q} \biggl( \biggl\vert \int_{x}^{t} \bigl\vert (e_{1}-u)\bigr\vert \bigl\vert g^{\prime\prime}(u)\bigr\vert \,\mathrm{d}u;p,q;x \biggr\vert \biggr) \\ & \leq {B}_{m,\ell}^{p,q} \bigl((e_{1}-x)^{2};p,q;x \bigr) \bigl\Vert g^{\prime \prime}\bigr\Vert . \end{aligned} \end{aligned}$$

Hence we get

$$\begin{aligned} &\biggl\vert {B}_{m,\ell}^{p,q}(g;x)-g(x)-xg^{\prime}(x) \biggl( \frac{[m+\ell]_{p,q}}{[m]_{p,q}}-1 \biggr)\biggr\vert \\ &\quad\leq\bigl\Vert g^{\prime\prime}\bigr\Vert \biggl(\frac{[m+\ell ]_{p,q}}{[m]_{p,q}^{2}} \bigl(px+(1-x) \bigr)_{p,q}^{m+\ell-1}x \\ &\qquad {}+ \biggl( \biggl( \frac{[m+\ell]_{p,q}}{[m]_{p,q}}-1 \biggr)^{2} +\frac{[m+\ell]_{p,q}}{[m]_{p,q}^{2}} \bigl( q[m+ \ell-1]_{p,q}-[m+\ell]_{p,q} \bigr) \biggr)x^{2} \biggr). \end{aligned}$$

On the other hand we have

$$\begin{aligned} &\biggl\vert {B}_{m,\ell}^{p,q}(f;x)-f(x)- x g^{\prime}(x) \biggl( \frac {[m+\ell-1]_{p,q}}{[m]_{p,q}}-1 \biggr)\biggr\vert \\ &\quad \leq \bigl\vert {B}_{m,\ell}^{p,q} \bigl((f-g);x \bigr)-(f-g) (x)\bigr\vert \\ &\qquad {}+\biggl\vert {B}_{m,\ell}^{p,q}(g;x)-g(x)- x g^{\prime}(x) \biggl( \frac{[m+\ell-1]_{p,q}}{[m]_{p,q}}-1 \biggr) \biggr\vert . \end{aligned}$$


$$ \bigl\vert {B}_{m,\ell}^{p,q}(f;x)\bigr\vert \leq \Vert f \Vert , $$

we have

$$\begin{aligned} &\biggl\vert {B}_{m,\ell}^{p,q}(f;x)-f(x)- x g^{\prime}(x) \biggl( \frac {[m+\ell-1]_{p,q}}{[m]_{p,q}}-1 \biggr) \biggr\vert \\ &\quad \leq \Vert f-g \Vert \\ &\qquad {}+\bigl\Vert g^{\prime\prime}\bigr\Vert \biggl(\frac{[m+\ell]_{p,q}}{[m]_{p,q}^{2}} \bigl(px+(1-x) \bigr)_{p,q}^{m+\ell-1}x \\ &\qquad {}+ \biggl( \biggl( \frac{[m+\ell]_{p,q}}{[m]_{p,q}}-1 \biggr)^{2} +\frac{[m+\ell]_{p,q}}{[m]_{p,q}^{2}} \bigl( q[m+ \ell-1]_{p,q}-[m+\ell]_{p,q} \bigr) \biggr)x^{2} \biggr). \end{aligned}$$

Now taking the infimum on the right hand side over all \(g \in\mathcal {W}^{2}\), we get

$$ \biggl\vert {B}_{m,\ell}^{p,q}(f;x)-f(x)- x g^{\prime}(x) \biggl( \frac {[m+\ell-1]_{p,q}}{[m]_{p,q}}-1 \biggr) \biggr\vert \leq \mathcal{C} K_{2} \bigl( f, \delta_{m}^{2}(x) \bigr). $$

In view of the property of the K-functional, we get

$$ \biggl\vert {B}_{m,\ell}^{p,q}(f;x)-f(x)- x g^{\prime}(x) \biggl( \frac {[m+\ell-1]_{p,q}}{[m]_{p,q}}-1 \biggr) \biggr\vert \leq \mathcal{C} \omega_{2} \bigl( f, \delta_{m}(x) \bigr). $$

This completes the proof. □

Theorem 4.2

Let \(f \in C[0,\ell+1]\) be such that \(f^{\prime},f^{\prime\prime }\in C[0, \ell+1]\), and the sequence \(\{p_{m}\}\), \(\{q_{m}\}\) satisfying \(0< q_{m}< p_{m} \leq1\) such that \(p_{m} \to1\), \(q_{m} \to1\) and \(p_{m}^{m}\to\alpha\), \(q_{m}^{m} \to \beta\) as \(m \to\infty\), where \(0\leq\alpha, \beta<1\). Then

$$ \lim_{m \to\infty}[m]_{p_{m},q_{m}} \bigl({B}_{m,\ell }^{p_{m},q_{m}}(f;x)-f(x) \bigr)=\frac{x(\lambda-\alpha x)}{2}f^{\prime\prime}(x) $$

is uniform on \([0,\ell+1]\), where \(0< \lambda\leq1\).


From the Taylor formula, we have

$$ f(t)= f(x)+f^{\prime}(x) (t-x)+\frac{1}{2} f^{\prime\prime }(x) (t-x)^{2}+r(t,x) (e_{1}-x)^{2}, $$

where \(r(t,x)\) is the remainder term and \(\lim_{t \to x}r(t,x)=0\), therefore we have

$$\begin{aligned} &[m]_{p_{m},q_{m}} \bigl({B}_{m,\ell}^{p_{m},q_{m}}(f;x)-f(x) \bigr) \\ &\quad=[m]_{p_{m},q_{m}} \biggl(f^{\prime}(x){B}_{m,\ell}^{p_{m},q_{m}} \bigl((e_{1}-x);x \bigr)+\frac{f^{\prime\prime}(x)}{2}{B}_{m,\ell}^{p_{m},q_{m}} \bigl((e_{1}-x)^{2};x \bigr) \\ &\qquad {}+{B}_{m,\ell }^{p_{m},q_{m}} \bigl(r(t,x) (t-x)^{2};x\bigr) \biggr). \end{aligned}$$

Now by applying the Cauchy-Schwartz inequality, we have

$$ {B}_{m,\ell}^{p_{m},q_{m}} \bigl(r(t,x) (t-x)^{2};x\bigr) \leq\sqrt{{B}_{m,\ell}^{p_{m},q_{m}} \bigl(r^{2}(t,x);x\bigr) }\cdot \sqrt{{B}_{m,\ell }^{p_{m},q_{m}} \bigl((t-x)^{4};x\bigr) }. $$

Since \(r^{2}(x,x)=0\), and \(r^{2}(t,x) \in C[0,\ell+1]\), from Theorem 3.1, we have

$$ {B}_{m,\ell}^{p_{m},q_{m}} \bigl(r^{2}(t,x);x\bigr) =r^{2}(x,x)=0, $$

which implies that

$$\begin{aligned}& {B}_{m,\ell}^{p_{m},q_{m}} \bigl(r(t,x) (t-x)^{2};x\bigr) =0, \\& \lim_{m \to\infty}[m]_{p_{m},q_{m}} \bigl({B}_{m,\ell}^{p_{m},q_{m}} \bigl((e_{1}-x);x\bigr) \bigr) =x\lim _{m \to\infty}[m]_{p_{m},q_{m}} \biggl(\frac{[m+\ell]_{p_{m},q_{m}}}{[m]_{p_{m},q_{m}}}-1 \biggr)=0, \\& \begin{aligned} &\lim_{m \to\infty}[m]_{p_{m},q_{m}} \bigl({B}_{m,\ell}^{p_{m},q_{m}} \bigl((e_{1}-x)^{2};x \bigr) \bigr) \\ &\quad =x\lim_{m \to\infty}[m]_{p_{m},q_{m}} \frac{[m+\ell ]_{p_{m},q_{m}}}{[m]_{p_{m},q_{m}}^{2}} \bigl(p_{m}x+(1-x) \bigr)_{p_{m},q_{m}}^{m+\ell-1} \\ &\qquad {}+x^{2}\lim_{m \to\infty}[m]_{p_{m},q_{m}} \biggl( \biggl(\frac{[m+\ell ]_{p_{m},q_{m}}}{[m]_{p_{m},q_{m}}}-1 \biggr)^{2}\\ &\qquad {}+\frac{[m+\ell ]_{p_{m},q_{m}}}{[m]_{p_{m},q_{m}}^{2}} \bigl( q_{m}[m+\ell-1]_{p_{m},q_{m}}-[m+\ell]_{p_{m},q_{m}} \bigr) \biggr), \end{aligned} \\& \lim_{m \to\infty}[m]_{p_{m},q_{m}} \bigl({B}_{m,\ell}^{p_{m},q_{m}} \bigl((e_{1}-x)^{2};x\bigr) \bigr) =\lambda x-\alpha x^{2} =x(\lambda -\alpha x), \end{aligned}$$

where \(\lambda\in(0,1]\) depends on the sequence \(\{p_{m}\}\).

Hence we have

$$ \lim_{m \to\infty}[m]_{p_{m},q_{m}} \bigl({B}_{m,\ell }^{p_{m},q_{m}}(f;x)-f(x) \bigr)=\frac{x(\lambda-\alpha x)}{2}f^{\prime\prime}(x). $$

This completes the proof. □

Now we give the rate of convergence of the operators \({B}_{m,\ell}^{p,q}(f;x) \) in terms of the elements of the usual Lipschitz class \(\mathit{Lip}_{M}(\nu)\).

Let \(f\in C[0,m+\ell]\), \(M>0\) and \(0<\nu\leq1\). We recall that f belongs to the class \(\mathit{Lip}_{M}(\nu)\) if the inequality

$$ \bigl\vert f(t)-f(x)\bigr\vert \leq M\vert t-x\vert ^{\nu} \quad\bigl(t,x\in( 0,1]\bigr) $$

is satisfied.

Theorem 4.3

Let \(0< q< p\leq1\). Then for each \(f\in \mathit{Lip}_{M}(\nu)\) we have

$$ \bigl\vert {B}_{m,\ell}^{p,q}(f;x)-f(x)\bigr\vert \leq M \delta_{m}^{\nu}(x), $$


$$\begin{aligned} \delta_{m}^{2}(x) =&\frac{[m+\ell]_{p,q}}{[m]_{p,q}^{2}} \bigl(px+(1-x) \bigr)_{p,q}^{m+\ell-1}x \\ &{}+ \biggl( \biggl(\frac{[m+\ell]_{p,q}}{[m]_{p,q}}-1 \biggr)^{2} +\frac{ [m+\ell]_{p,q}}{[m]_{p,q}^{2}} \bigl( q[m+\ell-1]_{p,q}-[m+\ell]_{p,q} \bigr) \biggr)x^{2}. \end{aligned}$$


By the monotonicity of the operators \({B}_{m,\ell}^{p,q}(f;x)\), we can write

$$\begin{aligned} \bigl\vert {B}_{m,\ell}^{p,q}(f;x)-f(x)\bigr\vert \leq&{B}_{m,\ell }^{p,q} \bigl( \bigl\vert f(t)-f(x)\bigr\vert ;p,q;x \bigr) \\ \leq&\sum_{k=0}^{m+\ell} \left [ \begin{matrix} m+\ell\\ k\end{matrix} \right ] _{p,q}x^{k} \prod _{s=0}^{m+\ell-k-1}\bigl(p^{s}-q^{s} x\bigr) \biggl\vert f \biggl( \frac{[k]_{p,q}}{[m]_{p,q}} \biggr)-f(x)\biggr\vert \\ \leq& M\sum_{k=0}^{m+\ell} \left [ \begin{matrix} m+\ell\\ k\end{matrix} \right ] _{p,q}x^{k} \prod _{s=0}^{m+\ell-k-1}\bigl(p^{s}-q^{s} x\bigr)\biggl\vert \frac{[k]_{p,q}}{[m]_{p,q}}-x\biggr\vert ^{\nu} \\ =& M\sum_{k=0}^{m+\ell} \biggl( \mathcal{P}_{m,\ell,k}(x) \biggl(\frac{[k]_{p,q}}{[m]_{p,q}}-x \biggr)^{2} \biggr)^{\frac{\nu}{2}} \mathcal {P}_{m,\ell,k}^{\frac{2-\nu}{2}}(x), \end{aligned}$$

where \(\mathcal{P}_{m,\ell,k}(x)=\bigl[ {\scriptsize\begin{matrix}{} m+\ell\cr k\end{matrix}} \bigr] _{p,q}x^{k} \prod_{s=0}^{m+\ell-k-1}(p^{s}-q^{s} x)\).

Now applying the Hölder inequality, we have

$$\begin{aligned} \bigl\vert {B}_{m,\ell}^{p,q}(f;x)-f(x)\bigr\vert \leq&M \Biggl( \sum_{k=0}^{m+\ell}\mathcal{P}_{m,\ell,k}(x) \biggl( \frac{[k]_{p,q}}{[m]_{p,q}}-x \biggr) ^{2} \Biggr) ^{\frac{\nu}{2}} \Biggl( \sum_{k=0}^{m+\ell} \mathcal {P}_{m,\ell ,k}(x) \Biggr) ^{\frac{2-\nu}{2}} \\ =&M \bigl( {B}_{m,\ell}^{p,q} \bigl( (e_{1}-x)^{2};x \bigr) \bigr) ^{\frac{\nu}{2}}. \end{aligned}$$

Choosing \(\delta:\delta_{m}(x)=\sqrt{{B}_{m,\ell}^{p,q} ( (e_{1}-x)^{2};x ) }\), we obtain

$$ \bigl\vert {B}_{m,\ell}^{p,q}(f;x)-f(x)\bigr\vert \leq M \delta_{m}^{\nu}(x). $$

Hence, the desired result is obtained. □


By using the notion of \((p,q)\)-integers we introduced \((p,q)\)-Bernstein-Schurer operators and investigated some approximation properties of these operators. We obtained the rate of convergence by using the modulus of continuity and also established some direct theorems. These results generalize the approximation results proved for q-Bernstein-Schurer operators, which are directly obtained by our results for \(p=1\).
