#### Abstract

We consider hybrid (Szász-beta) operators, which are a general sequence of integral type operators including beta function, and we give the degree of approximation by these Szász-beta-Durrmeyer operators.

#### 1. Introduction

The Lupaş-Durrmeyer operators were introduced by Sahai and Prasad [1] who studied the asymptotic formula for simultaneous approximation, and many mathematicians have given different results for the Durrmeyer operators (see [2–6]). Now we consider here a sequence of linear positive operators, which was introduced by Gupta et al. [7] as follows. Let and be positive integers. For satisfying , where is a positive integer, Let . For a function on , we define the norm by Recently Jung and Sakai [8] investigated the Lupaş-Durrmeyer operators and studied the circumstances of convergence. Motivated with the idea of Jung and Sakai [8], we give the degree of approximation by Szász-Beta-Durrmeyer operators in this paper.

Then substituting (12) into (10), we consider the following:
Then since we see
we have
Here the last equation follows from integration by parts. Furthermore, we easily see
Therefore, we conclude
Consequently, (ii) is proved.

(iii) For , (6) holds. Let us assume (6) for . We note
So, we have, by the assumption of induction,
Here, if is even, then
and if is odd, then
Hence we have
and here we see that is a polynomial of degree such that the coefficients of are bounded independently of .

If we put , then we get

In the following, we let ,.

Theorem 5. *Let and be nonnegative integers. Let and be integers with . Then one has, for ,

To prove Theorem 5, we need the following theorem.

Theorem 6. *Let and be nonnegative integers. Let and be integers with . Let satisfy

*Proof. *Using , we have
Therefore, by Lemma 1 (6), we have
Since is uniformly bounded on , we have with Lemma 2 and (59)
Therefore, we have the result.

The Steklov function for is defined as follows: Then for the Steklov function with respect to , we have the following properties.

Lemma 7 (see [8, Lemma 2.4]). *Let , and let be a positive and nonincreasing function on . Then*(i)*,*(ii)*(iii)**(iv)*

Now, we prove Theorem 5.

*Proof of Theorem 5. *We know that, for ,
Then first, we split it as follows:
Then for the first term, we have, using Theorem 6, (62), and (65),
Here, we suppose , and then we know that
For the second term, from Theorem 4, (65), (63), and (64) of Lemma 7,
Therefore, we have
If we let , then
because .
