Approximation of functions. 2nd ed. (English) Zbl 0643.41001
New York, N.Y.: Chelsea Publishing Company. IX, 188 p. (1986).
Some errors of the first edition (1966; Zbl 0153.38901) have been corrected and a faulty result about rational approximation has been replaced by a theorem of G. Freud. The changes are minimal.
