Also, we establish pointwise convergence, Voronovskaja type asymptotic formula, and an error estimation in terms of second order modification of continuity of the function for the operators .

1. Introduction

For , , , and , we consider a certain integral type generalized Baskakov operators as where being the Dirac delta function.

The operators defined by (1) are the generalization of the integral modification of well-known Baskakov operators having weight function of some beta basis function. As a special case, that is, , the operators (1) reduce to the operators very recently studied in [1, 2]. Inverse results of same type of operators were established in [3]. Also, if , the operators (1) reduce to the operators recently studied in [4] and if and , the operators (1) reduce to the operators studied in [5]. The -analog of the operators (1) is discussed in [6]. We refer to some of the important papers on the recent development on similar type of the operators [79]. The present a paper that deals with the study of simultaneous approximation for the operators .

2. Moments and Recurrence Relations

Lemma 1. If one defines the central moments, for every , as then , , and for ; one has the following recurrence relation:From the recurrence relation, it can be easily verified that, for all , one has , where denotes the integral part of
