We introduce a new Stancu type generalization of Srivastava-Gupta operators to approximate integrable functions on the interval and estimate the rate of convergence for functions having derivatives of bounded variation. Also we present simultenaous approximation by new operators in the end of the paper.

1. Introduction

To approximate integrable functions on the interval , Srivastava and Gupta [1] introduced a general sequence of linear positive operators as follows:for a function , where is the class of locally integrable functions defined on and satisfying the growth condition

The general sequence of operators has many interesting properties in approximation theory, which is an interesting area of research in the present era, and several researchers have studied these operators; we can mention some important studies on these operators (see [13]). In [4], author introduced King and Stancu type generalization of Srivastava-Gupta operators and presented some direct results. Also, Verma and Agrawal [5] introduced a new generalization of Srivastava-Gupta operators and studied the rate of convergence for the functions having the derivatives of bounded variation (BV). The rate of convergence for the functions having the derivatives of (BV) is an active area of research and many researchers studied this direction. We refer the readers to [610] and references therein.

Stancu [11, 12] introduced generalizations of Bernstein polynomials with one and two parameters (resp.), satisfying the condition , asfor any . Stancu type generalization of approximation operators present better approach depending on . Therefore, this kind of generalizations and their approximation properties have been studied intensively. We refer the readers to [1317] and references therein. Mishra et al. [18, 19], V. N. Mishra, and L. N. Mishra [20] have established very interesting results on approximation properties of various functional classes using different types of positive linear summability operators.

The purpose of this paper is to introduce a new Stancu type generalization of the operators defined in [5] asBy the definition of operators, it is clear that is positive and linear. For , reduces to operators defined in [5]. In this study we obtain the rate of convergence for the functions having the derivatives of bounded variation. Also, in the end of the paper, we study the simultaneous approximation.
