#### Abstract

This paper deals with new type -Baskakov-Beta-Stancu operators defined in the paper. First, we have used the properties of -integral to establish the moments of these operators. We also obtain some approximation properties and asymptotic formulae for these operators. In the end we have also presented better error estimations for the -operators.

#### 1. Introduction

In the recent years, the quantum calculus (-calculus) has attracted a great deal of interest because of its potential applications in mathematics, mechanics, and physics. Due to the applications of -calculus in the area of approximation theory, -generalization of some positive operators has attracted much interest, and a great number of interesting results related to these operators have been obtained (see, for instance, [1–3]). In this direction, several authors have proposed the -analogues of different linear positive operators and studied their approximation behaviors. Also, Aral and Gupta [4] defined -generalization of the Baskakov operators and investigated some approximation properties of these operators. Subsequently, Finta and Gupta [5] obtained global direct error estimates for these operators using the second-order Ditzian Totik modulus of smoothness. To approximate Lebesgue integrable functions on the interval , modified Beta operators [6] are defined as where and .

The discrete -Beta operators are defined as

Recently, Maheshwari and Sharma [7] introduced the -analogue of the Baskakov-Beta-Stancu operators and studied the rate of approximation and weighted approximation of these operators. Motivated by the Stancu type generalization of -Baskakov operators, we propose the -analogue of the operators , recently introduced and studied for special values by Gupta and Kim [8] as where and .

We know that and . We mention that (see [8]).

Very recently, Gupta et al. [9] introduced some direct results in simultaneous approximation for Baskakov-Durrmeyer-Stancu operators. The aim of this paper is to study the approximation properties of a new generalization of the Baskakov type Beta Stancu operators based on -integers. We estimate moments for these operators. Also, we study asymptotic formula for these operators. Finally, we give better error estimations for the operator (3). First, we recall some definitions and notations of -calculus. Such notations can be found in [10, 11]. We consider as a real number satisfying . For , The -binomial coefficients are given by The -derivative of a function is given by The -analogues of product and quotient rules are defined as The -Jackson integrals and the -improper integrals are defined as [12, 13] provided that the sums converge absolutely. Using (9), De Sole and Kac [14] defined the -analogue of Beta functions of second kind as follows: where . This function is -constant in ; that is, . It was observed in [14] that is independent of ; this is because from the integral and the term cancels out. In particular for any positive integer , we have Also, we have In [8], Gupta and Kim obtained recurrence formula for the moments of the operators as follows.

Theorem 1 (see [8]). *If one defined the central moments as
**
then, for , one has the following recurrence relation:
*

#### 2. Moment Estimates

Lemma 2 (see [8]). *The following equalities hold.*(i)*.*(ii)*.*(iii)*, for .*

Lemma 3. *The following equalities hold.*(i)*.*(ii)*, for .*(iii)*, for .*

*Proof. *The operators are well defined on function , , . By Lemma 2, for every and , we have
Similarly,

*Remark 4. *For all , , we have the following recursive relation for the images of the monomials under in terms of , , as

*Remark 5. *If we put and , we get the moments of the modified Beta operators [6] as

*Remark 6. *From Lemma 3, we have

#### 3. Direct Result and Asymptotic Formula

Let the space of all real-valued continuous bounded functions be endowed with the norm . Further, let us consider the following -functional: where and . By [15, page 177, Theorem 2.4], there exists an absolute constant such that where is the second-order modulus of smoothness of . Also we set

Theorem 7. *Let and such that as . Then for all and , there exists an absolute constant such that
*

*Proof. *We are introducing the auxiliary operators as follows:
From (25) and Lemma 3, we have
Let and . Using Taylor’s formula
applying , and by (26), we get
On the other hand, since
We conclude by Remark 6 that
From (25), we can write that
Now, taking into account the boundedness of and from (31), we get
Now, taking infimum on the right-hand side over all and from (21), we get
where . This proves the theorem.

Our next result in this section is an asymptotic formula.

Theorem 8. *Let be bounded and integrable function on the interval ; the second derivative of exists at a fixed point and such that as . Consider
*

*Proof. *Using Taylor’s expansion of , we can write

where is bounded and . Applying the operator to the above relation, we get
where and are defined in Remark 6.

Using Cauchy-Schwarz inequality, we have
Using Theorem 1 with the help of Remark 4, we can easily find that
Also, since
Thus,
which completes the proof.

#### 4. Better Estimation

It is well known that the operators preserve constant as well as linear functions. To make the convergence faster, King [16] proposed an approach to modify the classical Bernstein polynomials, so that this sequence preserves two test functions: and . After this, several researchers have studied that many approximating operators, , possess these properties; that is, , where or , for example, Bernstein, Baskakov, and Baskakov-Durrmeyer-Stancu operators (see [4, 5, 17–19]).

As the operators introduced in (3) preserve only the constant functions, further modification of these operators is proposed to be made so that the modified operators preserve the constant as well as linear functions. For this purpose, the modification of is as follows: where

Lemma 9. *For each , one has
*

Lemma 10. *For each , the following equalities hold:
*

Theorem 11. *Let and such that as . Then for all and , there exists an absolute constant such that
*

*Proof. *Let and . Using Taylor’s formula, we get
Applying , we get
Obviously, we have
Therefore,
Since , thus

Now, taking infimum on the right-hand side over all and from (21), we get
which proves the theorem.

Theorem 12. *Let be bounded and integrable function on the interval ; the second derivative of exists at a fixed point and such that as ; then
*

The proof follows along the same lines of Theorem 8.
