On compound operators depending on s parameters


In this note we introduce a compound operator depending on s parameters using binomial sequences.

We compute the values of this operator on the test functions, we give a convergence theorem and a representation of the remainder in the corresponding approximation formula.

We also mention some special cases of this operator.
