#### Abstract

In this paper we consider some analogs of the Korovkin approximation theorem via lacunary equistatistical convergence. In particular we study lacunary equi-statistical convergence of approximating operators on spaces, the spaces of all real valued continuous functions de*
*ned on and satisfying some special conditions.

#### 1. Introduction

Approximation theory has important applications in the theory of polynomial approximation, in various areas of functional analysis, numerical solutions of integral and differential equations [1–6]. In recent years, with the help of the concept of statistical convergence, various statistical approximation results have been proved [7]. In the usual sense, every convergent sequence is statistically convergent, but its converse is not always true. And, statistical convergent sequences do not need to be bounded.

Recently, Aktuğlu and Gezer [8] generalized the idea of statistical convergence to lacunary equi-statistical convergences. In this paper, we first study some Korovkin type approximation theorems via lacunary equi- statistical convergence in spaces. Then using the modulus of continuity, we study rates of lacunary equi-statistically convergence in .

We recall here the concepts of equi-statistical convergence and lacunary equi-statistical convergence.

Let and belong to , which is the space of all continuous real valued functions on a compact subset of the real numbers. is said to be equi-statistically convergent to on and denoted by if for every , the sequence of real valued functions converges uniformly to the zero function on , which means that A lacunary sequence is an integer sequence such that

In this paper the intervals determined by will be denoted by , and the ratio will be abbreviated by .

Let be a lacunary sequence then is said to be lacunary equi-statistically convergent to on and denoted by if for every , the sequence of real valued functions defined by uniformly converges to zero function on , which means that

A Korovkin type approximation theorem by means of lacunary equi-statistical convergence was given in [8]. We can state this theorem now. An operator defined on a linear space of functions is called linear if , for all , and is called positive, if , for all , . Let be a compact subset of , and let be the space of all continuous real valued functions on .

Lemma 1 (see [8]). *Let be a lacunary sequence, and let be a sequence of positive linear operators satisfying
**
then for all ,
*

We turn to introducing some notation and the basic definitions used in this paper. Throughout this paper . Let and Consider the space of all real-valued functions defined on and satisfying where is the modulus of continuity defined by (see [9]). Let , then the norm on is given by and also denote the valued of at a point is denoted by [10, 11].

is the type of modulus of continuity for the functions of two variables satisfying the following properties: for any real numbers , , , , , and ,(i) and are nonnegative increasing functions on ,(ii), (iii), (iv).

The space is of all real-valued functions defined on and satisfying It is clear that any function in is continuous and bounded on .

#### 2. Lacunary Equistatistical Approximation

In this section, using the concept of Lacunary equistatistical convergence, we give a Korovkin type result for a sequence of positive linear operators defined on , the space of all continuous real valued functions on the subset of , and the real -dimensional space. We first consider the case of . Following [7] we can state the following theorem.

Theorem 2. *Let be a lacunary sequence, and let be a sequence of positive linear operators from into . is satisfying , , where , ,
**
then for all ,
*

*Proof. *Let be a fixed point, , and assume that (14) holds. For every , there exist such that holds for all satisfying
Let
Hence,
where denotes the characteristic function of the set . Observe that
Using (18), (19), and we have
where .

By the linearity and positivity of the operators and by (18), we have
Hence, we get
where . For a given , choose such that . Define the following sets:
where . Then from (22) we clearly have
Therefore define the following real valued functions:
where . Then by the monotonicity and (24) we get
for all , and this implies the inequality
Taking limit in (27) as and using (14) we have
Then for all , we conclude that

Now replace by and by an induction, we consider the modulus of continuity type function as in the function . Then let be the space of all real-valued functions satisfying

Therefore, using a similar technique in the proof of Lemma 1 one can obtain the following result immediately.

Theorem 3. *Let be a lacunary sequence, and let be a sequence of positive linear operators from into . is satisfying
**
where , ,
**
Then for all ,
**
Assume that , . One considers the following positive linear operators defined on :
**
where , and .*

Lemma 4. *Let be a lacunary sequence, and let
**
be a sequence of positive linear operators from into . If is satisfying
**
then for all ,
*

*Proof. *Assume that (36) holds, and let . Since
it is clear that, for all ,
Now, by assumption we have
Using the definition of , we get
Since
we get
So, we have
The fact that and using a similar technique as in the proof of Lemma 1, we get
Hence we have
Also we have
To see this, by the definition of , we first write
Then,
which implies that
Since
we get
Thus . Therefore we obtain that for all , .

#### 3. Rates of Lacunary Equistatistical Convergence

In this section we study the order of lacunary equi-statistical convergence of a sequence of positive linear operators acting on , where . To achieve this we first consider the case of .

*Definition 5. *A sequence is called lacunary equi-statistically convergent to a function with rate if for every ,
where is given in Lemma 1. In this case it is denoted by

Lemma 6. *Let and be two sequences of functions in , with
**
Then one has
**
where .*

*Proof. *Assume that , and , on . For all , consider the following functions:
Then we have
and hence
Taking limit as and using the assumption complete the proof.

Now we give the rate of lacunary equi-statistical convergence of a positive linear operators to with the help of modulus of continuity.

Theorem 7. *Let , and let be a sequence of positive linear operators. Assume that*(i)* on ,*(ii)* on with
**Then
**
where .*

*Proof. *Let and . Use
where . Using inequality (62), conditions (i) and (ii) we get
so we have

Finally we give the rate of lacunary equi-statistical convergence for the operators by using the Peetre's -functional in the space . The Peetre -functional of function is defined by where

Theorem 8. *Let and be the sequence of Peetre's K-functional. If
**
on , then
*

*Proof. *For each , we get
