#### Abstract

We introduce a Kantorovich-Stancu type modification of a generalization of Szasz operators defined by means of the Brenke type polynomials and obtain approximation properties of these operators. Also, we give a Voronovskaya type theorem for Kantorovich-Stancu type operators including Gould-Hopper polynomials.

#### 1. Introduction

For each positive and or , the Szasz-Mirakyan operators defined by
have an important role in the approximation theory [1]. Their Korovkin type approximation properties and rates of convergence have been investigated by many researchers. Recently, there is a growing interest in defining linear positive operators via special functions (see [2–13]). In particular, many authors have studied various generalizations of Szasz operators via special functions. In [14], Jakimovski and Leviatan constructed a generalization of Szasz operators by means of the Appell polynomials. Then, Ismail [15] presented another generalization of Szasz operators by means of Sheffer polynomials, which involves the operators (1) defined by Jakimovski and Leviatan in [14]. In [11],Varma et al*. *considered the following generalization of Szasz operators by means of the Brenke type polynomials, which are motivated by the operators defined by Jakimovski and Leviatanand Ismail, for and :
under the following assumptions:
where
are analytic functions and the Brenke type polynomials [16] have generating functions of the form
where

The Kantorovich type of Szasz-Mirakyan operators is defined by [17] The approximation properties of the Szasz-Mirakyan-Kantorovich operators and their various iterates were studied by many authors in [12, 18–23].

Recently, in [8], the Kantorovich type of the operators given by (2) under the assumptions (3) has been defined as where , and , and some of its properties have been investigated.

The purpose of this study is to introduce a Kantorovich-Stancu type modification of the operators given by (8) and to examine the approximation properties of these operators. We also present a Kantorovich-Stancu type of the operators including Gould-Hopper polynomials and then we prove a Voronovskaya type theorem for these operators including Gould-Hopper polynomials.

#### 2. Construction of the Operators

For each positive integer , and , or , let us consider the following operators: where and parameters satisfy the condition . For the approximation properties of Stancu type operators, we refer to [24–27].

It is clear that for , reduces to the operators defined by (8).

In the case of and with the help of (5) it follows that . So the operator gives the Kantorovich-Stancu type of Szasz-Mirakyan operators as follows: where and parameters satisfy the condition .

In the case of , the operator (10) turns out to be the Szasz-Mirakyan-Kantorovich operators given by (7).

For , gives the Kantorovich-Stancu type of the operators proposed by Jakimovski and Leviatan in [14].

Now, for the operators given by (9), we give some results which are necessary to prove the main theorem.

Lemma 1. *Kantorovich-Stancu type operators, defined by (9), are linear and positive.*

Lemma 2. *For each , the Kantorovich-Stancu type operators (9) have the following properties:
*

*Proof. *From the generating function of the Brenke type polynomials given by (5), a few calculations reveal that
By using these equalities, we obtain the assertions of the lemma by simple calculation.

Lemma 3. *For each , one has
*

Theorem 4. *Let
**
If , then
**
and the operators converge uniformly in each compact subset of .*

*Proof. *According to Lemma 2, by considering the equality (16), we get
This convergence is satisfied uniformly in each compact subset of . Then, the proof follows from the universal Korovkin-type property (vi) of Theorem in [28].

#### 3. Rates of Convergence

In this section, we compute the rates of convergence of the operators to by means of a classical approach, the second modulus of continuity, and Peetre’s -functional.

Let . Then for , the modulus of continuity of denoted by is defined to be where denotes the space of uniformly continuous functions on Then, for any and each , it is well known that one can write

The next result gives the rate of convergence of the sequence to by means of the modulus of continuity.

Theorem 5. *For , one has
**
where
*

*Proof. *Using linearity of the operators , (11) and (20), we get
According to the Cauchy-Schwarz inequality for integration, we obtain that
from which, it follows that
By using the Cauchy-Schwarz inequality for summation on the right hand side of (25), we may write
where is given by (22). Considering this inequality in (23), we find that
If we set , the proof is completed.

Now, we will study the rates of convergence of the operators to by means of the second modulus of continuity and Peetre’s -functional.

Recall that the second modulus of continuity of is defined by where is the class of real valued functions defined on which are bounded and uniformly continuous with the norm .

Peetre’s -functional of the function is defined by where and the norm (see [29]). It is clear that the following inequality: holds for all . The constant is independent of and .

Theorem 6. *Let . If is defined by (9), then one has
**
where
*

*Proof. *We can write from the Taylor expansion of , the linearity of the operators , and (11)
From Lemma 2, it is obvious that
for . Thus, by considering Lemmas 2 and 3 in (34), one can write
which completes the proof.

Theorem 7. *If , then one has
**
where
**
and is a constant which is independent of the function and . Also, is the same as in Theorem 6.*

*Proof. *Suppose that . From Theorem 6, we have
Since the left-hand side of inequality (39) does not depend on the function , we get
where is Peetre’s -functional defined by (29). By using the relation (31) in (39), the inequality
holds.

*Remark 8. *In Theorems 5–7, when under the assumption (16).

#### 4. Special Cases of the Operators and Further Properties

Gould-Hopper polynomials are defined through the identity and satisfy the generating function where, as usual, denotes the integer part [30].

The Gould-Hopper polynomials are Brenke-type polynomials for the special case of and in (5). From (2), the operators including the Gould-Hopper polynomials are as follows: where and (see [11]).

Similarly, the special case and of (9) gives the following Kantorovich-Stancu type operators including the Gould-Hopper polynomials: under the assumption .

*Remark 9. *For , we have and the operators given by (45) reduce to the Kantorovich-Stancu type of Szasz-Mirakyan operators given by (10).

*Remark 10. *For , the operators (45) give the Kantorovich type operators including the Gould-Hopper polynomials given by
in [8].

*Remark 11. *For in Remark 10, we get and then the operators given by (46) reduce to the Szasz-Mirakyan-Kantorovich operators given by (7).

Now, in order to prove a Voronovskaya type theorem for the operators given by (45), let us prove the following lemmas.

Lemma 12. *For the operators , one has
*

*Proof. *The proof follows from the generating function (43) for the Gould-Hopper polynomials.

Lemma 13. *For each , one has
*

*Proof. *From Lemma 12, the proof is obvious.

Theorem 14. *Let . Then one has
*

*Proof. *By Taylor’s theorem for , we have
where and . By applying the operator to the both sides of (50), we have
According to Lemmas 12 and 13, the equality (51) can be written as follows:
where
By applying Cauchy-Schwarz inequality, we can write
If we consider Cauchy-Schwarz inequality again on the right-hand side of inequality above, then we arrive at

From Lemma 13, we have
On the other hand, since and , then it follows from Theorem 4 that
Therefore, we conclude from (55), (56), and (57) that
and then, by taking limit as in (52) and using (58), we find
which completes the proof.

*Remark 15. *For , Theorem 14 represents the Voronovskaya type theorem for the operators given by (46) (see [8]).

*Remark 16. *For , it yields a Voronovskaya type theorem for the Kantorovich-Stancu type of Szasz-Mirakyan operators given by (10).

*Remark 17. *Getting in Theorem 14 gives the Voronovskaya type result for the Szasz-Mirakyan-Kantorovich operators given by (7).
