S. N. Bernstein proved, under some conditions, the analytic dependence on t of the coefficients of the polynomial of best uniform approximation of the sum \(f+t\phi\), \(0\leq t\leq 1\), where f and \(\phi\) are given analytic functions on a given interval [a,b]. The author analyzes the multiple differentiability in the direction of the operator \(\pi\) of best uniform approximation by rational functions with a positive weight \(u\in C[a,b].\)
The operator \(\pi\) is said to be k-times differentiable on an element \(f\in C[a,b]\) in the direction \(\phi\in C[a,b]\) if there are functions \(D^+_ 1,...,D^+_ k\in C[a,b]\) such that \[ \pi (f+t\phi)=\pi (f)+\sum^{k}_{i=1}t^ iD^+_ i(f,\phi)+o(t^ k)\text{ for } t\to 0. \] Similarly, the k-times differentiability to the left and k-times differentiability is defined. Let \(B_{n,0}=C[a,b]\) and \(B_{n,m}\), \(m>0\) \(n\geq 0\), be the set of all functions continuous on [a,b] for which \(\pi (f)=u\cdot p/q\), where p and q are mutually prime polynomials, \(p\neq 0\), \(q>0\), \(\| q\| =1\) and deg p\(=n\) or deg q\(=m\). An example of the author’s results reads as follows: Let \(k\geq 2\) and let f be any function having k continuous derivatives. Let \(f\in B_{m,n}\) an let \((f(x)-\pi (f,x))''\neq 0\) in every point \(x\in [a,b]\) for which the norm of f-\(\pi\) (f) is attained. Then, the operator \(\pi\) is k-times differentiable on the element f in any k-times continuously differentiable direction \(\phi\) to the right.
