Abstract  

Let ℂ[−1,1] be the space of continuous functions on [−,1], and denote by Δ2 the set of convex functions f ∈ ℂ[−,1]. Also, let En(f) and En(2) (f) denote the degrees of best unconstrained and convex approximation of f ∈ Δ2 by algebraic polynomials of degree < n, respectively. Clearly, En (f) ≦ En(2) (f), and Lorentz and Zeller proved that the inverse inequality En(2) (f) ≦ cEn(f) is invalid even with the constant c = c(f) which depends on the function f ∈ Δ2. In this paper we prove, for every α > 0 and function f ∈ Δ2, that

where c(α) is a constant depending only on α. Validity of similar results for the class of piecewise convex functions having s convexity changes inside (−1,1) is also investigated. It turns out that there are substantial differences between the cases s≦ 1 and s ≧ 2.
