#### Abstract

In this article, we introduce Stancu-type modification of generalized Baskakov-Szász operators. We obtain recurrence relations to calculate moments for these new operators. We study several approximation properties and -statistical approximation for these operators.

#### 1. Introduction

In 1912, Bernstein [1] proposed the famous polynomial known as the Bernstein polynomial to give a simple, short, and most elegant proof of the Weierstrass approximation theorem. Since then, several papers have appeared to study approximation properties in different settings and spaces. Many new operators were constructed, e.g., Szász [2], Mirakjan [3], Kantorovic [4], Durrmeyer [5], Stancu [6], and many more [7–9]. These operators provide the improvement of approximating functions of different classes and give better and better estimates. For example, the Baskakov operators were given in [10]: For , the space of all continuous functions on normed with standard sup-norm

Devore and Lorentz [11] introduced a generalization of operators (1) dependent on a constant and independent of as follows: where and

Recently, Agrawal et al. [12] studied the following operators (2): for , for some , where

Inspired by Stancu’s work [6], we have studied recently the Stancu-type generalization in [13]. Now, we propose the Stancu-type generalization of operators (4) as follows: for any bounded and integrable function defined on , where . For , the operators (5) reduce to operators (4).

We establish recurrence relations to find moments and central moments. We study some approximation properties and the Voronovskaja-type asymptotic formula. We also study weighted approximation.

Our first result is the recurrence formula for moments.

Therefore,
Substituting (17), (14), and (13) in (12), we get
Further, substituting (18) in (10), we get the result.
