The Lebesgue function for generalized Hermite-Fejér interpolation on the Chebyshev nodes Academic Article uri icon


  • AbstractThis paper presents a short survey of convergence results and properties of the Lebesgue function λm,n(x) for(0, 1, …, m)Hermite-Fejér interpolation based on the zeros of the nth Chebyshev polynomial of the first kind. The limiting behaviour as n → ∞ of the Lebesgue constant Λm,n = max{λm,n(x): −1 ≤ x ≤ 1} for even m is then studied, and new results are obtained for the asymptotic expansion of Λm,n. Finally, graphical evidence is provided of an interesting and unexpected pattern in the distribution of the local maximum values of λm,n(x) if m ≥ 2 is even.
