Korovkin type error estimates for Meyer-Konig and Zeller operators


In this paper we construct a linear and positive approximation process of discrete type which includes as a particular case the Meyer-Kong and Zeller operatros.
Based on several inequalities we prove that the sequence converges to the identity operator. We obtain inequalities regarding estimations of the remainder which are given by using the moduli of smoothness of first and second order as well as the Lipschitz type maximal function. also we establish that our operators have the variation diminishing property.
