Bernstein-type operators on a triangle with one curved side. (English) Zbl 1258.41009

The authors construct Bernstein-type operators, and their product and Boolean sum, for a triangle with one curved side. Their interpolation properties and the order of accuracy are studied. Moreover, using the modulus of continuity and Peano’s theorem, respectively, the remainders of the corresponding approximation formulas are also studied. Finally, some numerical examples are given.
