A de Casteljau algorithm for \(q\)-Bernstein-Stancu polynomials. (English) Zbl 1209.33017

Summary: This paper is concerned with a generalization of \(q\)-Bernstein polynomials and Stancu operators, where the function is evaluated at intervals which are in geometric progression. It is shown that these polynomials can be generated by a de Casteljau algorithm, which is a generalization of that relating to the classical case and the \(q\)-Bernstein case.
