1. Introduction
Let f ∈ C([0, 1]). The well-known Bernstein polynomial of degree n, denoted by Bn ( f ; x) is Bn ( f ; x) := where pn,k (x) = n k x (1 ? x)n?k k (1.1)

and x ∈ [0, 1] [4]. Let x ∈ [0, ∞) and f ∈ C([0, ∞)). Szazs–Mirakyan operators, denoted by Sn ( f ; x) are Sn ( f ; x) := where qn,k (x) = e?nx (nx)k . k! (1.2) 387

In [3] approximation properties of Sn ( f ; x) in weighted spaces were studied. Some works by Szazs–Mirakyan or modi?ed Szazs–Mirakyan operators may be found in [12,7,18] and references therein. Stancu [16] introduced the following generalization of the Bernstein polynomials. Let (α ,β ) f ∈ C([0, 1]). Stancu operators, denoted by (Pn f ) are (Pn

where pn,k (x) are the polynomials given by (1.1), α , β are positive real numbers satisfying 0 ≤ α ≤ β. Taking the operators, given above, into account we now introduce certain linear positive operators of functions of two variables as follows: α ,β Let f ∈ C(R ), R := [0, 1] × [0, ∞) and let the linear positive operators Lmi,n j , j = 1, 2, be de?ned as follows: Lmi,n j :=

and (1.2), respectively. In the sequel, whenever we mention the operators Lmi,n j , j = 1, 2, it will be mentioned that these are the operators given in (1.3). We use the notation RA to denote the following closed and bounded region in R2 , RA := [0, 1] × [0, A], A > 0.

for (x, y) ∈ R , m, n ∈ N, 0 ≤ α j ≤ β j , j = 1, 2, where pm,ν (x) and qn,k (y) are given in (1.1)

(1.4)

In this paper we ?rst study some approximation properties of the sequence of linear positive operators given by (1.3) in the space of functions, continuous on RA , and ?nd the order of this approximation using modulus of continuity. Moreover we de?ne an rth order α ,β generalization of Lmi,n j , j = 1, 2, on RA extending the results of Kirov [14] and Kirov– Popova [15] to the linear positive operators Lmi,n j , j = 1, 2, of functions of two variables and study its approximation properties. The rth order generalization of some kind of linear positive operators may also be found in [1,9]. We ?nally investigate the convergence of the sequence of linear positive operators α ,β Lmi,n j , j = 1, 2, de?ned on a weighted space of functions of two variables and ?nd the rate of this convergence by means of weighted modulus of continuity. α ,β If we take pn,k (y), k = 0, 1, . . . , n in place of qn,k (y) in (1.3), then the operators Lmi,n j , j = 1, 2, reduce to the generalized Bernstein polynomials of two variables which were studied in [5]. Approximation of functions of one or two variables by some positive linear operators in weighted spaces may be found in [8,9,13,17,18].

2. Preliminaries
In this section we give some basic de?nitions which we shall use. We denote by ρ the function, continuous and satisfying ρ (x, y) 1 for (x, y) ∈ R and lim|r|→∞ ρ (x, y) = ∞, r = (x, y) · ρ is called a weight function. Let Bρ denote the set of functions of two variables de?ned on R satisfying | f (x, y)| ≤ M f ρ (x, y), where M f > 0 is a constant depending on f , and Cρ denote the set of functions belonging to Bρ , and continuous on R . Clearly f (x,y)| , Cρ ? Bρ · Bρ and Cρ are called weighted spaces with norm f ρ = sup(x,y)∈R |ρ (x,y) [10,11]. The Lipschitz class LipM (γ ) of the functions of f of two variables is given by | f (x1 , y1 ) ? f (x2 , y2 )| ≤ M [(x1 ? x2 )2 + (y1 ? y2 )2 ] 2 ,
γ

(2.1)

(x1 , y1 ), (x2 , y2 ) ∈ R , where M > 0, 0 < γ ≤ 1 and f ∈ C(R ). The full modulus of continuity of f ∈ C(RA ), denoted by w( f ; δ ), is de?ned as follows: w( f ; δ ) = √ max
(x1 ?x2 )2 +(y1 ?y2 )2 ≤δ

| f (x1 , y1 ) ? f (x2 , y2 )|.

(2.2)

Partial modulus of continuity with respect to x and y are given by w(1) ( f ; δ ) = max and w(2) ( f ; δ ) = max
0≤x≤1 |y1 ?y2 |≤δ 0≤y≤A |x1 ?x2 |≤δ

max | f (x1 , y) ? f (x2 , y)|

(2.3)

max | f (x, y1 ) ? f (x, y2 )|,

(2.4)

respectively. We shall also need the following properties of the full and partial modulus of continuity w( f ; λ δ ) ≤ (1 + [λ ])w( f ; δ ) (2.5)

for any λ . Here [λ ] is the greatest integer that does not exceed λ . Moreover, it is known that when f is uniformly continuous, then limδ →0 w( f ; δ ) = 0 and | f (t , τ ) ? f (x, y)| ≤ w( f ; (t ? x)2 + (τ ? y)2 ), (2.6)

(t , τ ), (x, y) ∈ RA . The analogous properties are satis?ed by the partial modulus of continuity.

3. Lemmas and theorems on RA
In this section we give some classical approximation properties of the operators Lmi,n j , j = 1, 2, on the compact set RA . Lemma 3.1. Let α j , β j , j = 1, 2, be the ?xed positive numbers such that 0 ≤ α j ≤ β j . Then we have Lmi,n j (1; x, y) = 1,

Proof. Since the necessity is clear, then we need only to prove the suf?ciency. Let (t , τ ), (x, y) ∈ RA . By the uniform continuity of f on RA we get that for each ε > 0 there exists a number δ > 0 such that | f (t , τ ) ? f (x, y)| < ε , whenever (t ? x)2 + (τ ? y)2 < δ . Now let (x, y) ∈ RA and (t , τ ) ∈ R and let (x1 , y1 ) be an arbitrary boundary point of RA such that 0 ≤ x1 ≤ 1, 0 ≤ y1 ≤ A. Since f is continuous on the boundary points also, then for each ε > 0 there exists a δ > 0 such that | f (t , τ ) ? f (x, y)| ≤ | f (t , τ ) ? f (x1 , y1 )| + | f (x1 , y1 ) ? f (x, y)| < ε whenever (t ? x)2 + (τ ? y)2 < δ . Finally let (x, y) ∈ RA and (t , τ ) ∈ R and let (t ? x)2 + (τ ? y)2 > δ . Then easy calculations show that | f (t , τ ) ? f (x, y)| ≤ M f ((t ? x)2 + (τ ? y)2 ) ≤C (t ? x)2 + (τ ? y)2 δ2 . 2 3 + 2 + 2 (x2 + y2 ) δ2 δ

(3.2)

for (t , τ ) ∈ R , (x, y) ∈ RA . Applying Lmi,n j to (3.2) we get |Lmi,n j ( f (t , τ ); x, y) ? f (x, y)| ≤ Lmi,n j (| f (t , τ ) ? f (x, y)|; x, y) + f |Lmi,n j (1; x, y) ? 1|. Using (3.2) in the last inequality and taking (3.1) into account, suf?ciency is obtained easily. 2 We note that if we take f (x, y) to be bounded on R2 in the previous theorem, then α ,β we easily obtain that Lmi,n j ( f ; x, y) ? f (x, y) C(RA ) → 0, as m, n → ∞ satis?ed from Lemma 3.1 by analogous Korovkin’s theorem proved by Volkov [19]. The following theorem gives the rate of convergence of the sequence of linear positive α ,β operators {Lmi,n j } to f , by means of partial and full modulus of continuity. Theorem 3.3. Let f ∈ C(RA ). Then the following inequalities (a) (b) Lmi,n j ( f ; x, y) ? f (x, y) Lmi,n j ( f ; x, y) ? f (x, y)

Using the analogous property of (2.6) for the partial modulus of continuity and ?nally applying the Cauchy–Schwartz inequality to the resulting term, then we arrive at (3.3) on RA , which proves (a). Using (2.6) directly in (3.6) and applying Cauchy–Schwartz inequality to the resulting term we then reach to (3.4) on RA , which gives (b). 2

5. Weighted approximation of functions of two variables by Lmi,n j
In this section we investigate the convergence of the sequence {Lmi,n j } mapping the weighted space Cρ into Bρ1 . We also study the rates of convergence of the sequence {Lmi,n j } de?ned on weighted spaces. In the rest of the article ρ will be given by ρ (x, y) = 1 + x2 + y2 . We ?rst give the following important Korovkin type theorem (in weighted spaces) proved by Gadjiev in [11]. Theorem of Gadjiev. Let {An } be the sequence of linear positive operators mapping from Cρ (Rm ) into Bρ (Rm ), m 1, and satisfying the conditions An (1; x) ? 1 An (|t |2 ; x) ? |x|2

By taking the result of the last theorem into account we conclude that verifying the α ,β α ,β conditions of the above theorem by the operators Lmi,n j , j = 1, 2, is not suf?cient for Lmi,n j to be convergent to any function f in ρ norm. Hence we need to show the convergence in another norm for any function in Cρ (R ). For this purpose, we now give the following lemma, which we shall use.

as n → ∞ for ρ (x) = 1 + |x|2 , x ∈ Rm . Then there exists a function f ? ∈ Cρ (Rm ) such that An ( f ? ; x) ? f?(x) ρ 1.

which proves (a). Taking Lemma 3.1 into account we get the following inequality:

so (b) is obtained from (5.1), which completes the proof.

Now the following theorem shows the convergence of the sequence of linear positive α ,β operators {Lmi,n j }, mapping from Cρ into Bρ1 , in ρ1 norm. Theorem 5.2. Let ρ1 (x, y) be a weight function satisfying

Since ρ /ρ1 is bounded on Rs , the ?rst term on the right-hand side of (5.3) approaches zero when m, n → ∞ by Theorem 3.2. The second term also approaches zero when m, n → ∞ by Lemma 5.1(b) and the condition (5.2). So proof is completed. 2 As a result we give the approximation order of Lmi,n j , j = 1, 2, m, n ∈ N, by means of the weighted modulus of continuity. Theorem 5.3.
