#### Abstract

In this work, the direct theorem of approximation theory in variable exponent Morrey–Smirnov classes of analytic functions, defined on a doubly connected domain of the complex plane bounded by two sufficiently smooth curves, is investigated.

#### 1. Introduction

The classical Morrey spaces were introduced by Morrey in [1] in order to investigate the local behavior of the solutions of elliptic differential equations. Recently, many researchers have investigated function spaces with variable exponents due to their use in several fields of applied mathematics. In particular, function spaces with variable exponents have many applications in areas involving the modeling of electrorheological fluids [2] and image restoration [3]. The variable exponent Morrey spaces introduced in [4] have been studied intensively by various authors (see, for example, [5–7]). The fundamental problem in approximation theory is to express complicated functions by simple functions such as polynomials, wavelets, or rational functions with more useful structures. The theory of approximation is strongly related with the operators and has a considerable number of applications in areas including general marginal distributions such as sampling and machine learning (see [8–10]). Also, the approximation problems in the variable Morrey–Smirnov classes of analytic functions defined on a simply connected domain with a Dini-smooth boundary are proved in [11]. The direct and converse theorems of approximation theory in the classical Morrey–Smirnov classes defined on a simply connected domain with a Dini-smooth boundary were obtained in [12, 13]. Similar results in the variable exponent Smirnov classes were studied in [14, 15].

On a doubly connected domain, the rate of approximation by Faber–Laurent rational function in Smirnov classes was studied in [16]. Also, the rate of approximation by Faber–Laurent rational function in Smirnov–Orlicz classes and Smirnov classes with variable exponent was obtained in [17]. The approximation property of Faber–Laurent rational functions in the weighted generalized grand Smirnov classes on doubly connected domains is proved in [18].

In the current paper, approximation one direct theorem of approximation theory in variable exponent Morrey–Smirnov classes of analytic functions, defined on a doubly connected domain bounded by two Dini-smooth curves, is obtained.

It is known that every function of class has nontangential boundary values almost everywhere on and the boundary function belongs to ([19], pp. 438–453).

According to the Privalov theorem [19] if one of the functions or has the nontangential limits a.e. on , then exists a.e. on and also the other one has the nontangential limits a.e. on . Conversely, if exists a.e. on , then the functions and have nontangential limits a.e. on . In both cases, the following formulae:hold a.e. on .

In Kokilashvili and Meskhi [25], it is proved that, if is a Dini-smooth curve, then the operator is bounded on , i.e., there exists a positive constant such the following inequality holds for any :If and are Dini-smooth curves, then by [26] there are positive constants , and suchLet be a Dini-smooth curve, we define the following functions for , and for , .
