Asymptotic behaviour of Jain operators


The topic of the present paper are certain approximation operators acting on the space of continous functions on \([0,+\infty)\) having polynomial growth. The operators which were defined by Jain in 1972 are based on a probability distribution which is called generalized Poisson distribution. As a main result we derive a complete asymptotic expansion for the sequence of these operators.
