Approximation by bivariate generalized Bernstein–Schurer operators and associated GBS operators


We construct the bivariate form of Bernstein–Schurer operators based on parameter α. We establish the Voronovskaja-type theorem and give an estimate of the order of approximation with the help of Peetre’s K-functional of our newly defined operators. Moreover, we define the associated generalized Boolean sum (shortly, GBS) operators and estimate the rate of convergence by means of mixed modulus of smoothness. Finally, the order of approximation for Bögel differentiable function of our GBS operators is presented.

1 Introduction

Schurer [41] presented the modification of the classical Bernstein operators with the help of nonnegative parameter and nowadays called Bernstein–Schurer operators, which are linear and positive. Suppose that \(\mathbb{Z}_{0}^{+}\) and \(C[a,b]\) are used to denote the space of nonnegative integers and continuous functions on \([a,b]\), respectively. Let us take \(\eta \in \mathbb{Z}_{0}^{+}\). The well-known Bernstein–Schurer operators

$$ M_{j,\eta }:C[0,1+\eta ]\longrightarrow C[0,1] $$

are defined as

$$ M_{j,\eta }(g;y)=\sum_{k=0}^{j+\eta }g \biggl(\frac{k}{j} \biggr)M_{j, \eta ,k}(y) $$

for any \(g\in [0,1+\eta ]\), \(j\in \mathbb{N}\), and \(y\in [0,1]\), where

$$ M_{j,\eta ,k}(y)=\binom{j+\eta }{k}y^{k}(1-y)^{j+\eta -k}. $$

When \(\eta =0\) in (1.1), we obtain

$$ M_{j,0}(g;y)=\sum_{k=0}^{j}g \biggl(\frac{k}{j} \biggr)M_{j,0,k}(y)=M_{j}(g;y),\quad \text{say}. $$

In this case, the operators \(M_{j}(g;y)\) and \(M_{j,0,k}(y)\), respectively, are called Bernstein operators and polynomials [11].

Most recently, the generalization of Bernstein operators was demonstrated by the authors Chen et al. [17] by taking the parameter \(\alpha \in \mathbb{R}\). However, they showed that their operators are positive and linear for the choice of \(0\leq \alpha \leq 1\), so they considered this assumption in their work and then studied several approximation properties for their α-Bernstein operators. Thereafter, many researchers, keeping the idea of this meaningful parameter α into account, constructed several operators. For example, Mohiuddine et al. [26] introduced the family of α-Bernstein–Kantorovich operators and associated bivariate form and demonstrated the results regarding the rate of convergence via Peetre’s K-functional together with modulus of continuity. In addition to this, the Stancu type α-Bernstein–Kantorovich, α-Baskakov and their Kantorovich form, and α-Baskakov–Durrmeyer operators were analyzed by Mohiuddine and Özger [32], Aral et al. [6, 20], and Mohiuddine et al. [31], respectively, and for other blending type operators, see [23, 27, 36]. Some other modifications of Bernstein operators have been studied in [2, 15, 16, 25, 33, 34, 37, 42]. Furthermore, Acar and Kajla [3] gave the bivariate α-Bernstein operators and associated generalized Boolean sum operators and then studied the degree of approximation of their operators. For more details on approximation by related operators and statistical approximation, we refer to [1, 4, 10, 14, 21, 2830, 35, 40, 44, 45].

Motivated by the operators defined in (1.1) and α-Bernstein operators, very recently, Ozger et al. [38] defined the α-Bernstein–Schurer operators \(M_{j,\eta }^{\alpha }:C[0,1+\eta ]\longrightarrow C[0,1]\) by

$$ M_{j,\eta }^{\alpha } (g;y )=\sum _{k=0}^{j+\eta }g_{k}M_{j, \eta ,k}^{(\alpha )} (y ) $$


$$ g_{k}=g \biggl(\frac{k}{j} \biggr) $$

for any \(g\in C[0,1+\eta ]\), \(y\in [0,1]\), \(j\in \mathbb{N}\), and \(0\leq \alpha \leq 1\), where

$$ M_{1,\eta ,0}^{(\alpha )} (y )=1-y,\qquad M_{1,\eta ,1}^{( \alpha )} (y )=y $$


$$\begin{aligned} M_{j,\eta ,k}^{(\alpha )} (y )={}& \biggl[y(1-\alpha ) \binom{j+\eta -2}{k}+ (1-y ) (1-\alpha ) \binom{j+\eta -2}{k-2} \\ &{}+y\alpha (1-y )\binom{j+\eta }{k} \biggr]y^{k-1} (1-y )^{j+\eta -k-1} \end{aligned}$$

for \(j\geq 2\). Note that \(M_{j,\eta }^{\alpha } (t-y;y )=\eta y/j\). When \(\eta =0\), the operators \(M_{j,\eta }^{\alpha } (g;y )\) coincide with α-Bernstein operators. In addition to \(\eta =0\), take \(\alpha =1\), then \(M_{j,\eta }^{\alpha } (g;y )\) reduces to \(M_{j}(g;y)\). When only \(\alpha =1\), the operators \(M_{j,\eta }^{\alpha } (g;y )\) reduce to the operators \(M_{j,\eta }(g;y)\). In the same paper, authors investigated global approximation, local approximation, and Voronovskaja-type approximation results of the operators \(M_{j,\eta }^{\alpha } (g;y )\). They also established shape preserving properties such as monotonicity and convexity.

2 Bivariate generalized Bernstein–Schurer operators

Here, we construct the bivariate form of α-Bernstein–Schurer operators and demonstrate their basic properties.

Throughout the manuscript, we suppose that \(C(I^{2})\) is the space of continuous function on \(I^{2}(=I\times I)=[0,1+\eta ]\times [0,1+\eta ]\), where η in \(\mathbb{Z}_{0}^{+}\). For any \(h\in C(I^{2})\), \((y_{1},y_{2})\in [0,1]\times [0,1]\), \(s_{1},s_{2}\in \mathbb{N}\), and \(\alpha _{1},\alpha _{2}\) in \([0,1]\), we define

$$\begin{aligned} M_{s_{1},s_{2},\eta }^{\alpha _{1},\alpha _{2}} (h;y_{1},y_{2} )=\sum_{\ell _{1}=0}^{s_{1}+\eta } \sum _{ \ell _{2}=0}^{s_{2}+\eta }h \biggl(\frac{\ell _{1}}{s_{1}}, \frac{\ell _{2}}{s_{2}} \biggr)M_{s_{1}+\eta ,s_{2}+\eta ,\ell _{1}, \ell _{2}}^{(\alpha _{1},\alpha _{2})} (y_{1},y_{2} ), \end{aligned}$$

where the polynomials \(M_{s_{1}+\eta ,s_{2}+\eta ,\ell _{1},\ell _{2}}^{(\alpha _{1}, \alpha _{2})} (y_{1},y_{2} )=M_{s_{1}+\eta ,\ell _{1}}^{( \alpha _{1})} (y_{1} )M_{s_{2}+\eta ,\ell _{2}}^{(\alpha _{2})} (y_{2} )\) are considered by

$$\begin{aligned} M_{s_{1}+\eta ,s_{2}+\eta ,\ell _{1},\ell _{2}}^{(\alpha _{1},\alpha _{2})} (y_{1},y_{2} )={}& \biggl[ (1-\alpha _{1} )y_{1} \binom{s_{1}+\eta -2}{\ell _{1}}+ (1-\alpha _{1} ) (1-y_{1} )\binom{s_{1}+\eta -2}{\ell _{1}-2} \\ &{}+\alpha _{1}y_{1} (1-y_{1} ) \binom{s_{1}+\eta }{\ell _{1}} \biggr]y_{1}^{\ell _{1}-1} (1-y_{1} )^{s_{1}+\eta -(\ell _{1}+1)} \\ &{}\times \biggl[ (1-\alpha _{2} )y_{2} \binom{s_{2}+\eta -2}{\ell _{2}}+ (1-\alpha _{2} ) (1-y_{2} )\binom{s_{2}+\eta -2}{\ell _{2}-2} \\ &{}+\alpha _{2}y_{2} (1-y_{2} )\binom{s_{2}+\eta }{\ell _{2}} \biggr]y_{2}^{\ell _{2}-1} (1-y_{2} )^{s_{2}+\eta -(\ell _{2}+1)}. \end{aligned}$$

Lemma 2.1

Suppose that \(e_{jk}(y_{1},y_{2})=y_{1}^{j}y_{2}^{k}\) for \((j,k)=\mathbb{N}_{0}\times \mathbb{N}_{0}\) \((\mathbb{N}_{0}=\mathbb{N}\cup \{0\})\) with \(j+k\leq 4\). Then

$$\begin{aligned} &M_{s_{1},s_{2},\eta }^{\alpha _{1},\alpha _{2}}(e_{00};y_{1},y_{2})=1, \\ &M_{s_{1},s_{2},\eta }^{\alpha _{1},\alpha _{2}}(e_{10};y_{1},y_{2})= \biggl(1+\frac{\eta }{s_{1}} \biggr)y_{1}, \\ &M_{s_{1},s_{2},\eta }^{\alpha _{1},\alpha _{2}}(e_{01};y_{1},y_{2})= \biggl(1+\frac{\eta }{s_{2}} \biggr)y_{2}, \\ &M_{s_{1},s_{2},\eta }^{\alpha _{1},\alpha _{2}}(e_{20};y_{1},y_{2})=y_{1}^{2}+ \frac{(s_{1} +\eta +2(1-\alpha _{1}))(y_{1}-y_{1}^{2})}{s_{1}^{2}}+ \frac{\eta (\eta +2s_{1})y_{1}^{2}}{s_{1}^{2}}, \\ &M_{s_{1},s_{2},\eta }^{\alpha _{1},\alpha _{2}}(e_{02};y_{1},y_{2})=y_{2}^{2}+ \frac{(s_{2} +\eta +2(1-\alpha _{2}))(y_{2}-y_{2}^{2})}{s_{2}^{2}}+ \frac{\eta (\eta +2s_{2})y_{2}^{2}}{s_{2}^{2}}, \\ &M_{s_{1},s_{2},\eta }^{\alpha _{1},\alpha _{2}}(e_{30};y_{1},y_{2})\\ &\quad =y_{1}^{3}+ \frac{s_{1}+\eta +6(1-\alpha _{1})}{s_{1}^{3}}y_{1}+ \bigl(-6\alpha _{1} \eta -6\alpha _{1}s_{1}+3\eta ^{2}+6\eta s_{1}+3s_{1}^{2} \\ &\qquad{}+18\alpha _{1}+3\eta +3s_{1}-18 \bigr) \frac{y_{1}^{2}}{s_{1}^{3}}+ \bigl( \eta ^{3}+3\eta ^{2}s_{1}+3 \eta s_{1}^{2}+6\alpha _{1}\eta +6 \alpha _{1}s_{1} \\ &\qquad{}-3\eta ^{2}-6\eta s_{1}-3s_{1}^{2}-12 \alpha _{1}-4\eta -4s_{1}+12 \bigr)\frac{y_{1}^{3}}{s_{1}^{3}}, \\ &M_{s_{1},s_{2},\eta }^{\alpha _{1},\alpha _{2}}(e_{03};y_{1},y_{2})\\ &\quad =y_{2}^{3}+ \frac{s_{2}+\eta +6(1-\alpha _{2})}{s_{2}^{3}}y_{2}+ \bigl(-6\alpha _{2} \eta -6\alpha _{2}s_{2}+3\eta ^{2}+6\eta s_{2}+3s_{2}^{2} \\ &\qquad{}+18\alpha _{2}+3\eta +3s_{2}-18 \bigr) \frac{y_{2}^{2}}{s_{2}^{3}}+ \bigl(\eta ^{3}+3\eta ^{2}s_{2}+3 \eta s_{2}^{2}+6\alpha _{2}\eta +6 \alpha _{2}s_{2} \\ &\qquad{}-3\eta ^{2}-6\eta s_{2}-3s_{2}^{2}-12 \alpha _{2}-4\eta -4s_{2}+12 \bigr)\frac{y_{2}^{3}}{s_{2}^{3}}, \\ &M_{s_{1},s_{2},\eta }^{\alpha _{1},\alpha _{2}}(e_{40};y_{1},y_{2})\\ &\quad =y_{1}^{4}+ \frac{s_{1}+\eta +14(1-\alpha _{1})}{s_{1}^{4}}y_{1}+ \bigl(-36\alpha _{1} \eta -36 \alpha _{1}s_{1}+7\eta ^{2}+14\eta s_{1} \\ &\qquad{}+7s_{1}^{2}+86\alpha _{1}+29\eta +29s_{1}-86 \bigr) \frac{y_{1}^{2}}{s_{1}^{4}}+ \bigl(-12\alpha _{1} \eta ^{2}-24\alpha _{1} \eta s_{1} \\ &\qquad{}-12\alpha _{1}s_{1}^{2}+6\eta ^{3}+18\eta ^{2}s_{1}+18\eta s_{1}^{2}+6s_{1}^{3}+96 \alpha _{1}\eta +96\alpha _{1}s_{1}-6\eta ^{2} \\ &\qquad{}-12\eta s_{1}-6s_{1}^{2}-144\alpha _{1}-84\eta -84s_{1}+144 \bigr) \frac{y_{1}^{3}}{s_{1}^{4}}+ \bigl( \eta ^{4}+4\eta ^{3}s_{1} \\ &\qquad{}+6\eta ^{2}s_{1}^{2}+4\eta s_{1}^{3}+12\alpha _{1}\eta ^{2}+24 \alpha _{1}\eta s_{1}+12\alpha _{1}s_{1}^{2}-6 \eta ^{3}-18\eta ^{2}s_{1} \\ &\qquad{}-18\eta s_{1}^{2}-6s_{1}^{3}-60 \alpha _{1}\eta -60\alpha _{1}s_{1}- \eta ^{2}-2\eta s_{1}-s_{1}^{2}+72\alpha _{1}+54\eta \\ &\qquad{}+54s_{1}-72 \bigr)\frac{y_{1}^{4}}{s_{1}^{4}}, \\ &M_{s_{1},s_{2},\eta }^{\alpha _{1},\alpha _{2}}(e_{04};y_{1},y_{2})\\ &\quad =y_{2}^{4}+ \frac{s_{2}+\eta +14(1-\alpha _{2})}{s_{2}^{4}}y_{2}+ \bigl(-36\alpha _{2} \eta -36 \alpha _{2}s_{2}+7\eta ^{2}+14\eta s_{2} \\ &\qquad{}+7s_{2}^{2}+86\alpha _{2}+29\eta +29s_{2}-86 \bigr) \frac{y_{2}^{2}}{s_{2}^{4}}+ \bigl(-12\alpha _{2} \eta ^{2}-24\alpha _{2} \eta s_{2} \\ &\qquad{}-12\alpha _{2}s_{2}^{2}+6\eta ^{3}+18\eta ^{2}s_{2}+18\eta s_{2}^{2}+6s_{2}^{3}+96 \alpha _{2}\eta +96\alpha _{2}s_{2}-6\eta ^{2} \\ &\qquad{}-12\eta s_{2}-6s_{2}^{2}-144\alpha _{2}-84\eta -84s_{2}+144 \bigr) \frac{y_{2}^{3}}{s_{2}^{4}}+ \bigl( \eta ^{4}+4\eta ^{3}s_{2} \\ &\qquad{}+6\eta ^{2}s_{2}^{2}+4\eta s_{2}^{3}+12\alpha _{2}\eta ^{2}+24 \alpha _{2}\eta s_{2}+12\alpha _{2}s_{2}^{2}-6 \eta ^{3}-18\eta ^{2}s_{2} \\ &\qquad{}-18\eta s_{2}^{2}-6s_{2}^{3}-60 \alpha _{2}\eta -60\alpha _{2}s_{2}- \eta ^{2}-2\eta s_{2}-s_{2}^{2}+72\alpha _{2}+54\eta \\ &\qquad{}+54s_{2}-72 \bigr)\frac{y_{2}^{4}}{s_{2}^{4}}. \end{aligned}$$


We shall use Lemma 3 of [38] to prove Lemma 2.1. Clearly, from (2.1), we obtain

$$\begin{aligned} M_{s_{1},s_{2},\eta }^{\alpha _{1},\alpha _{2}} (e_{00};y_{1},y_{2} )=\sum_{\ell _{1}=0}^{s_{1}+\eta } \sum _{ \ell _{2}=0}^{s_{2}+\eta }M_{s_{1}+\eta ,s_{2}+\eta ,\ell _{1},\ell _{2}}^{( \alpha _{1},\alpha _{2})} (y_{1},y_{2} )=1. \end{aligned}$$

Next, we write

$$\begin{aligned} M_{s_{1},s_{2},\eta }^{\alpha _{1},\alpha _{2}} (e_{10};y_{1},y_{2} )&=\sum_{\ell _{1}=0}^{s_{1}+\eta } \sum _{ \ell _{2}=0}^{s_{2}+\eta }\frac{\ell _{1}}{s_{1}}M_{s_{1}+\eta ,s_{2}+ \eta ,\ell _{1},\ell _{2}}^{(\alpha _{1},\alpha _{2})} (y_{1},y_{2} ) \\ &=\sum_{\ell _{1}=0}^{s_{1}+\eta }\frac{\ell _{1}}{s_{1}}M_{s_{1}+ \eta ,\ell _{1}}^{(\alpha _{1})} (y_{1} ) \sum_{ \ell _{2}=0}^{s_{2}+\eta }M_{s_{2}+\eta ,\ell _{2}}^{(\alpha _{2})} (y_{2} ) \\ &=M_{s_{1},\eta }^{\alpha } (e_{1};y_{1} )M_{s_{2},\eta }^{ \alpha } (e_{0};y_{2} ) \\ &= \biggl(1+\frac{\eta }{s_{1}} \biggr)y_{1}. \end{aligned}$$

Similarly, we get

$$\begin{aligned} M_{s_{1},s_{2},\eta }^{\alpha _{1},\alpha _{2}} (e_{01};y_{1},y_{2} )=M_{s_{1},\eta }^{\alpha } (e_{0};y_{1} )M_{s_{2}, \eta }^{\alpha } (e_{1};y_{2} )= \biggl(1+ \frac{\eta }{s_{2}} \biggr)y_{2}. \end{aligned}$$


$$\begin{aligned} M_{s_{1},s_{2},\eta }^{\alpha _{1},\alpha _{2}} (e_{20};y_{1},y_{2} )&=\sum_{\ell _{1}=0}^{s_{1}+\eta } \biggl( \frac{\ell _{1}}{s_{1}} \biggr)^{2}M_{s_{1}+\eta ,\ell _{1}}^{( \alpha _{1})} (y_{1} ) \sum_{\ell _{2}=0}^{s_{2}+ \eta }M_{s_{2}+\eta ,\ell _{2}}^{(\alpha _{2})} (y_{2} ) \\ &=M_{s_{1},\eta }^{\alpha } (e_{2};y_{1} )M_{s_{2},\eta }^{ \alpha } (e_{0};y_{2} ) \\ &=y_{1}^{2}+ \frac{(s_{1} +\eta +2(1-\alpha _{1}))(y_{1}-y_{1}^{2})}{s_{1}^{2}}+ \frac{\eta (\eta +2s_{1})y_{1}^{2}}{s_{1}^{2}}, \end{aligned}$$

and similarly, we obtain

$$\begin{aligned} M_{s_{1},s_{2},\eta }^{\alpha _{1},\alpha _{2}} (e_{02};y_{1},y_{2} )&=\sum_{\ell _{1}=0}^{s_{1}+\eta }M_{s_{1}+\eta , \ell _{1}}^{(\alpha _{1})} (y_{1} ) \sum_{\ell _{2}=0}^{s_{2}+ \eta } \biggl( \frac{\ell _{2}}{s_{2}} \biggr)^{2}M_{s_{2}+\eta ,\ell _{2}}^{( \alpha _{2})} (y_{2} ) \\ &=M_{s_{1},\eta }^{\alpha } (e_{0};y_{1} )M_{s_{2},\eta }^{ \alpha } (e_{2};y_{2} ) \\ &=y_{2}^{2}+ \frac{(s_{2} +\eta +2(1-\alpha _{2}))(y_{2}-y_{2}^{2})}{s_{2}^{2}}+ \frac{\eta (\eta +2s_{2})y_{2}^{2}}{s_{2}^{2}}. \end{aligned}$$

Similarly, we obtain the last two moments. □

Corollary 2.2

The following identities hold:

$$\begin{aligned} &M_{s_{1},s_{2},\eta }^{\alpha _{1},\alpha _{2}} (t_{1}-y_{1};y_{1},y_{2} )=\frac{\eta y_{1}}{s_{1}}, \\ &M_{s_{1},s_{2},\eta }^{\alpha _{1},\alpha _{2}} (t_{2}-y_{2};y_{1},y_{2} )=\frac{\eta y_{2}}{s_{2}}, \\ &M_{s_{1},s_{2},\eta }^{\alpha _{1},\alpha _{2}} \bigl( (t_{1}-y_{1} )^{2};y_{1},y_{2} \bigr)=\frac{(s_{1}+\eta +2(1-\alpha _{1}))(y_{1}-y_{1}^{2}) +\eta ^{2}y_{1}^{2}}{s_{1}^{2}}, \\ &M_{s_{1},s_{2},\eta }^{\alpha _{1},\alpha _{2}} \bigl( (t_{2}-y_{2} )^{2};y_{1},y_{2} \bigr)=\frac{(s_{2}+\eta +2(1-\alpha _{2}))(y_{2}-y_{2}^{2})+ \eta ^{2}y_{2}^{2}}{s_{2}^{2}}, \\ &M_{s_{1},s_{2},\eta }^{\alpha _{1},\alpha _{2}} \bigl( (t_{1}-y_{1} )^{4};y_{1},y_{2} \bigr)\\ &\quad= \bigl(s_{1}+\eta +14(1-\alpha _{1}) \bigr) \frac{y_{1}}{s_{1}^{4}}+ \bigl(-36\alpha _{1}\eta -12\alpha _{1}s_{1}+7 \eta ^{2} \\ &\qquad{}+10\eta s_{1}+3s_{1}^{2}+86\alpha _{1}+29\eta +5s_{1}-86 \bigr) \frac{y_{1}^{2}}{s_{1}^{4}}+ \bigl(-12 \alpha _{1}\eta ^{2} \\ &\qquad{}+6\eta ^{3}+6\eta ^{2}s_{1}+96\alpha _{1}\eta +24\alpha _{1}s_{1}-6 \eta ^{2}-24\eta s_{1}-6s_{1}^{2} \\ &\qquad{}-144\alpha _{1}-84\eta -12s_{1}+144 \bigr) \frac{y_{1}^{3}}{s_{1}^{4}}+ \bigl(\eta ^{4}+12\alpha _{1}\eta ^{2}-6\eta ^{3} \\ &\qquad{}-6\eta ^{2}s_{1}-60\alpha _{1}\eta -12\alpha _{1}s_{1}-\eta ^{2}+14 \eta s_{1}+3s_{1}^{2}+72 \alpha _{1} \\ &\qquad{}+54\eta +6s_{1}-72 \bigr)\frac{y_{1}^{4}}{s_{1}^{4}}, \\ &M_{s_{1},s_{2},\eta }^{\alpha _{1},\alpha _{2}} \bigl( (t_{2}-y_{2} )^{4};y_{1},y_{2} \bigr)\\ &\quad= \bigl(s_{2}+\eta +14(1-\alpha _{2}) \bigr) \frac{y_{2}}{s_{2}^{4}}+ \bigl(-36\alpha _{2}\eta -12\alpha _{2}s_{2}+7 \eta ^{2} \\ &\qquad{}+10\eta s_{2}+3s_{2}^{2}+86\alpha _{2}+29\eta +5s_{2}-86 \bigr) \frac{y_{2}^{2}}{s_{2}^{4}}+ \bigl(-12 \alpha _{2}\eta ^{2} \\ &\qquad{}+6\eta ^{3}+6\eta ^{2}s_{2}+96\alpha _{2}\eta +24\alpha _{2}s_{2}-6 \eta ^{2}-24\eta s_{2}-6s_{2}^{2} \\ &\qquad{}-144\alpha _{2}-84\eta -12s_{2}+144 \bigr) \frac{y_{2}^{3}}{s_{2}^{4}}+ \bigl(\eta ^{4}+12\alpha _{2}\eta ^{2}-6\eta ^{3} \\ &\qquad{}-6\eta ^{2}s_{2}-60\alpha _{2}\eta -12\alpha _{2}s_{2}-\eta ^{2}+14 \eta s_{2}+3s_{2}^{2}+72 \alpha _{2} \\ &\qquad{}+54\eta +6s_{2}-72 \bigr)\frac{y_{2}^{4}}{s_{2}^{4}}. \end{aligned}$$

3 Order of convergence and Voronovskaja-type results

In this section, we obtain the Voronovskaja-type result and the order of convergence with the help of Peetre’s K-functional for our operators \(M_{s_{1},s_{2},\eta }^{\alpha _{1},\alpha _{2}} (h;y_{1},y_{2} )\). For \(g\in C (I^{2} )\), the norm of the bivariate function g is considered by

$$ \Vert g \Vert _{C (I^{2} )}=\sup_{(y_{1},y_{2})\in \mathcal{I}^{2} } \bigl\vert g(y_{1},y_{2}) \bigr\vert . $$

Theorem 3.1

For any \(h\in C(I^{2})\), one has

$$ \lim_{s_{1},s_{2}\to \infty } \bigl\Vert M_{s_{1},s_{2},\eta }^{\alpha _{1}, \alpha _{2}} (h )-h \bigr\Vert _{C(I_{1}^{2})}=0, $$

where \(I_{1}^{2}=[0,1]\times [0,1]\).


We see that

$$\begin{aligned} &\bigl\Vert M_{s_{1},s_{2},\eta }^{\alpha _{1},\alpha _{2}} (e_{00} )-e_{00} \bigr\Vert _{C(I_{1}^{2})}\to 0, \qquad\bigl\Vert M_{s_{1},s_{2},\eta }^{\alpha _{1}, \alpha _{2}} (e_{10} )-e_{10} \bigr\Vert _{C(I_{1}^{2})}\to 0, \\ &\bigl\Vert M_{s_{1},s_{2},\eta }^{\alpha _{1},\alpha _{2}} (e_{01} )-e_{01} \bigr\Vert _{C(I_{1}^{2})}\to 0,\qquad \bigl\Vert M_{s_{1},s_{2},\eta }^{\alpha _{1}, \alpha _{2}} (e_{20}+e_{02} )-(e_{20}+e_{02}) \bigr\Vert _{C(I_{1}^{2})} \to 0 \end{aligned}$$

as \(s_{1},s_{2}\to \infty \). Thus (3.1) holds by Volkov’s theorem [43]. □

We will use \(C^{2}(I^{2})\) to denote the space of all functions \(h\in C(I^{2})\) such that \(\frac{\partial ^{j}h}{\partial y_{1}^{j}}, \frac{\partial ^{j}h}{\partial y_{2}^{j}}, \frac{\partial ^{2}h}{\partial y_{1}\,\partial y_{2}}\in C(I^{2})\) \((j=1,2)\) and equipped with the norm

$$ \Vert h \Vert _{C^{2}(I^{2})}= \Vert h \Vert _{C(I^{2})}+\sum _{j=1}^{2} \biggl( \biggl\Vert \frac{\partial ^{j}h}{\partial y_{1}^{j}} \biggr\Vert _{C(I^{2})}+ \biggl\Vert \frac{\partial ^{j}h}{\partial y_{2}^{j}} \biggr\Vert _{C(I^{2})} \biggr)+ \biggl\Vert \frac{\partial ^{2}h}{\partial y_{1}\,\partial y_{2}} \biggr\Vert _{C(I^{2})}\quad \bigl(h\in C \bigl(I^{2} \bigr) \bigr). $$

Theorem 3.2

Suppose that \(h\in C^{2}(I^{2})\). Then

$$\begin{aligned} &\lim_{s\to \infty }s \bigl(M_{s,s,\eta }^{\alpha _{1},\alpha _{2}} (h;y_{1},y_{2} )-h(y_{1},y_{2}) \bigr)\\ &\quad=\eta \bigl(y_{1}h_{y_{1}}(y_{1},y_{2})+y_{2}h_{y_{2}}(y_{1},y_{2}) \bigr) \\ &\qquad{}+\frac{y_{1}(1-y_{1})}{2} h_{y_{1},y_{1}}(y_{1},y_{2})+ \frac{y_{2}(1-y_{2})}{2} h_{y_{2},y_{2}}(y_{1},y_{2}) \end{aligned}$$

uniformly on \(I_{1}^{2}\).


Suppose that \(h\in C^{2}(I^{2})\). Then Taylor’s theorem gives

$$\begin{aligned} h(t_{1},t_{2})={}&h(y_{1},y_{2})+h_{y_{1}}(y_{1},y_{2}) (t_{1}-y_{1})+h_{y_{2}}(y_{1},y_{2}) (t_{2}-y_{2}) \\ &{}+\frac{1}{2} \bigl[h_{y_{1}y_{1}}(y_{1},y_{2}) (t_{1}-y_{1})^{2}+2h_{y_{1}y_{2}}(y_{1},y_{2}) (t_{1}-y_{1}) (t_{2}-y_{2}) \\ &{}+h_{y_{2}y_{2}}(y_{1},y_{2}) (t_{2}-y_{2})^{2} \bigr]+\rho (t_{1},t_{2},y_{1},y_{2}) \sqrt{(t_{1}-y_{1})^{4}+(t_{2}-y_{2})^{4}}, \end{aligned}$$

where \(\rho (t_{1},t_{2},y_{1},y_{2})\in C(I^{2})\) and

$$ \rho (t_{1},t_{2},y_{1},y_{2})\to 0 \bigl( (t_{1},t_{2} ) \to (y_{1},y_{2} ) \bigr). $$

Since \(M_{s,s,\eta }^{\alpha _{1},\alpha _{2}}\) is linear so, by operating on (3.2), we obtain

$$\begin{aligned} &M_{s,s,\eta }^{\alpha _{1},\alpha _{2}} \bigl(h (t_{1},t_{2} );y_{1},y_{2} \bigr) \\ &\quad=h(y_{1},y_{2})+h_{y_{1}}(y_{1},y_{2})M_{s,s, \eta }^{\alpha _{1},\alpha _{2}} (t_{1}-y_{1};y_{1},y_{2} ) \\ &\qquad{}+h_{y_{2}}(y_{1},y_{2})M_{s,s,\eta }^{\alpha _{1},\alpha _{2}} (t_{2}-y_{2};y_{1},y_{2} ) \\ &\qquad{}+\frac{1}{2} \bigl[h_{y_{1}y_{1}}(y_{1},y_{2})M_{s,s,\eta }^{\alpha _{1}, \alpha _{2}} \bigl( (t_{1}-y_{1} )^{2};y_{1},y_{2} \bigr) \\ &\qquad{}+2h_{y_{1}y_{2}}(y_{1},y_{2})M_{s,s,\eta }^{\alpha _{1},\alpha _{2}} \bigl( (t_{1}-y_{1} ) (t_{2}-y_{2} );y_{1},y_{2} \bigr) \\ &\qquad{}+h_{y_{2}y_{2}}(y_{1},y_{2})M_{s,s,\eta }^{\alpha _{1},\alpha _{2}} \bigl( (t_{2}-y_{2})^{2};y_{1},y_{2} \bigr) ) \bigr] \\ &\qquad{}+M_{s,s,\eta }^{\alpha _{1},\alpha _{2}} \bigl(\rho (t_{1},t_{2},y_{1},y_{2}) \sqrt{(t_{1}-y_{1})^{4}+(t_{2}-y_{2})^{4}};y_{1},y_{2} \bigr). \end{aligned}$$

With a view of Corollary 2.2, we find that

$$\begin{aligned} \lim_{s\to \infty }sM_{s,s,\eta }^{\alpha _{1},\alpha _{2}} \bigl( (t_{1}-y_{1} ) (t_{2}-y_{2} );y_{1},y_{2} \bigr)={}&\lim_{s\to \infty }s \bigl[M_{s,\eta }^{\alpha _{1}} (t_{1}-y_{1};y_{1} ) \\ &{}\times M_{s,\eta }^{\alpha _{2}} (t_{2}-y_{2};y_{2} ) \bigr] \\ ={}&0 \end{aligned}$$

and also

$$\begin{aligned} &\lim_{s\to \infty }sM_{s,s,\eta }^{\alpha _{1},\alpha _{2}} (t_{1}-y_{1};y_{1},y_{2} )=\eta y_{1},\qquad \lim_{s\to \infty }sM_{s,s,\eta }^{ \alpha _{1},\alpha _{2}} (t_{2}-y_{2};y_{1},y_{2} )=\eta y_{2}, \end{aligned}$$
$$\begin{aligned} \begin{aligned} &\lim_{s\to \infty }sM_{s,s,\eta }^{\alpha _{1},\alpha _{2}} \bigl( (t_{1}-y_{1} )^{2};y_{1},y_{2} \bigr)=y_{1} (1-y_{1} ),\\ & \lim_{s\to \infty }sM_{s,s,\eta }^{\alpha _{1}, \alpha _{2}} \bigl( (t_{2}-y_{2} )^{2};y_{1},y_{2} \bigr)=y_{2} (1-y_{2} ). \end{aligned} \end{aligned}$$

It follows from (3.3)–(3.6) that

$$\begin{aligned} &\lim_{s\to \infty }s \bigl(M_{s,s,\eta }^{\alpha _{1}, \alpha _{2}} (h;y_{1},y_{2} )-h(y_{1},y_{2}) \bigr) \\ &\quad =\eta y_{1}h_{y_{1}}(y_{1},y_{2})+ \eta y_{2}h_{y_{2}}(y_{1},y_{2}) \\ &\qquad{} +\frac{1}{2} \bigl[y_{1}(1-y_{1})h_{y_{1}y_{1}}(y_{1},y_{2})+y_{2}(1-y_{2})h_{y_{2}y_{2}}(y_{1},y_{2}) \bigr] \\ &\qquad{} +\lim_{s\to \infty }sM_{s,s,\eta }^{\alpha _{1}, \alpha _{2}} \bigl(\rho (t_{1},t_{2},y_{1},y_{2}) \sqrt{(t_{1}-y_{1})^{4}+(t_{2}-y_{2})^{4}};y_{1},y_{2} \bigr). \end{aligned}$$

By the Cauchy–Schwarz inequality, one gets

$$\begin{aligned} &sM_{s,s,\eta }^{\alpha _{1},\alpha _{2}} \bigl(\rho (t_{1},t_{2},y_{1},y_{2}) \sqrt{(t_{1}-y_{1})^{4}+(t_{2}-y_{2})^{4}};y_{1},y_{2} \bigr) \\ &\quad \leq \sqrt{M_{s,s,\eta }^{\alpha _{1},\alpha _{2}} \bigl(\rho ^{2} (t_{1},t_{2},y_{1},y_{2} );y_{1},y_{2} \bigr)}\sqrt{s^{2}M_{s,s,\eta }^{\alpha _{1},\alpha _{2}} \bigl( (t_{1}-y_{1} )^{4}+ (t_{2}-y_{2} )^{4};y_{1},y_{2} \bigr)} \\ &\quad =\sqrt{M_{s,s,\eta }^{\alpha _{1},\alpha _{2}} \bigl( \rho ^{2} (t_{1},t_{2},y_{1},y_{2} );y_{1},y_{2} \bigr)} \\ &\qquad{} \times \sqrt{s^{2} \bigl(M_{s,s,\eta }^{ \alpha _{1},\alpha _{2}} \bigl( (t_{1}-y_{1} )^{4};y_{1},y_{2} \bigr)+M_{s,s,\eta }^{\alpha _{1},\alpha _{2}} \bigl( (t_{2}-y_{2} )^{4};y_{1},y_{2} \bigr) \bigr)}. \end{aligned}$$

Since \(\rho (t_{1},t_{2},y_{1},y_{2})\in C(I^{2})\) and \(\lim_{ (t_{1},t_{2} )\to (y_{1},y_{2} )} \rho (t_{1},t_{2},y_{1},y_{2})=0\), we have

$$ \lim_{s\to \infty }M_{s,s,\eta }^{\alpha _{1},\alpha _{2}} \bigl(\rho ^{2} (t_{1},t_{2},y_{1},y_{2} );y_{1},y_{2} \bigr)=0 $$

uniformly on \(I_{1}^{2}\) by Theorem 3.1. Corollary 2.2 gives

$$ s^{2}M_{s,s,\eta }^{\alpha _{1},\alpha _{2}} \bigl( (t_{1}-y_{1} )^{4};y_{1},y_{2} \bigr)\longrightarrow 3y_{1}^{2}-6y_{1}^{3}+3y_{1}^{4}\quad (s\longrightarrow \infty ) $$


$$ s^{2}M_{s,s,\eta }^{\alpha _{1},\alpha _{2}} \bigl( (t_{2}-y_{2} )^{4};y_{1},y_{2} \bigr)\longrightarrow 3y_{2}^{2}-6y_{2}^{3}+3y_{2}^{4}\quad (s\longrightarrow \infty ). $$

Employing the last three relations in Eq. (3.8) and then using Eq. (3.7), we obtain

$$\begin{aligned} &\lim_{s\to \infty }s \bigl(M_{s,s,\eta }^{\alpha _{1},\alpha _{2}} (h;y_{1},y_{2} )-h (y_{1},y_{2} ) \bigr)\\ &\quad= \eta y_{1}h_{y_{1}}(y_{1},y_{2})+ \eta y_{2}h_{y_{2}}(y_{1},y_{2}) \\ &\qquad{}+\frac{1}{2} \bigl[y_{1}(1-y_{1})h_{y_{1}y_{1}}(y_{1},y_{2})+y_{2}(1-y_{2})h_{y_{2}y_{2}}(y_{1},y_{2}) \bigr] \end{aligned}$$

uniformly on \(I_{1}^{2}\). □

For \(h\in C(I^{2})\) and \(\delta >0\), Peetre’s K-functional is given by

$$ K(h;\delta )=\inf_{h_{1}\in C^{2}(I^{2})} \bigl\{ \Vert h-h_{1} \Vert _{C(I^{2})}+\delta \Vert h_{1} \Vert _{C(I^{2})} \bigr\} $$

and the modulus of continuity of h is

$$ \omega (h;\delta )=\sup \bigl\{ \bigl\vert h (u_{1},u_{2} )-h (y_{1},y_{2} ) \bigr\vert : (u_{1},u_{2} ), (y_{1},y_{2} )\in I_{1}^{2},\sqrt{ (u_{1}-y_{1} )^{2}+ (u_{2}-y_{2} )^{2}}\leq \delta \bigr\} . $$

By Theorem 9 (see [18]), there is a constant \(C>0\) such that

$$ K(h;\delta )\leq C\omega _{2}(h;\sqrt{\delta }). $$

In the above relation, \(\omega _{2}(h;\sqrt{\delta })\) is the second-order modulus of continuity of \(h\in C(I^{2})\) (for details, see [5]).

Theorem 3.3

For any \(h\in C(I^{2})\), one has

$$ \bigl\vert M_{s_{1},s_{2},\eta }^{\alpha _{1},\alpha _{2}} (h;y_{1},y_{2} )-h (y_{1},y_{2} ) \bigr\vert \leq 4K \bigl(h;\delta _{s_{1},s_{2}} (y_{1},y_{2} ) \bigr)+\omega \biggl(h; \sqrt{ \biggl( \frac{\eta y_{1}}{s_{1}} \biggr)^{2}+ \biggl( \frac{\eta y_{2}}{s_{2}} \biggr)^{2}} \biggr), $$


$$ \delta _{s_{1},s_{2}} (y_{1},y_{2} ) (=\delta )= \frac{1}{4} \biggl(\delta _{s_{1}}^{2}(y_{1})+ \delta _{s_{2}}^{2}(y_{2})+ \biggl( \frac{\eta y_{1}}{s_{1}} \biggr)^{2}+ \biggl(\frac{\eta y_{2}}{s_{2}} \biggr)^{2} \biggr)>0 $$


$$ \delta _{s_{1}}^{2}(y_{1})={\mathcal{M}}_{s_{1},s_{2},\eta }^{\alpha _{1}, \alpha _{2}} \bigl( (t_{1}-y_{1} )^{2};y_{1},y_{2} \bigr),\qquad \delta _{s_{2}}^{2}(y_{2})={ \mathcal{M}}_{s_{1},s_{2},\eta }^{\alpha _{1}, \alpha _{2}} \bigl( (t_{2}-y_{2} )^{2};y_{1},y_{2} \bigr). $$


Assume that \(h_{1}\in C^{2}(I^{2})\). Then, by Taylor’s theorem, we have

$$\begin{aligned} &h_{1} (t_{1},t_{2} )-h_{1} (y_{1},y_{2} )\\ &\quad=\frac{\partial h_{1} (y_{1},y_{2} )}{\partial y_{1}} (t_{1}-y_{1} )+ \int _{y_{1}}^{t_{1}} (t_{1}-u_{1} ) \frac{\partial ^{2}h_{1} (u_{1},y_{2} )}{\partial u_{1}^{2}}\,du_{1} \\ &\qquad{}+\frac{\partial h_{1} (y_{1},y_{2} )}{\partial y_{2}} (t_{2}-y_{2} )+ \int _{y_{2}}^{t_{2}} (t_{2}-u_{2} ) \frac{\partial ^{2}h_{1} (y_{1},u_{2} )}{\partial u_{2}^{2}}\,du_{2}. \end{aligned}$$

We are now defining the auxiliary operators by

$$ {\mathcal{M}}_{s_{1},s_{2},\eta }^{\alpha _{1},\alpha _{2}} (h;y_{1},y_{2} )=M_{s_{1},s_{2},\eta }^{\alpha _{1},\alpha _{2}} (h;y_{1},y_{2} )-h \biggl(\frac{(\eta +s_{1})y_{1}}{s_{1}}, \frac{(\eta +s_{2})y_{2}}{s_{2}} \biggr)+h (y_{1},y_{2} ). $$

Simple calculation together with Corollary 2.2 gives that

$$ {\mathcal{M}}_{s_{1},s_{2},\eta }^{\alpha _{1},\alpha _{2}} (t_{1}-y_{1};y_{1},y_{2} )=0 \quad\text{and}\quad {\mathcal{M}}_{s_{1},s_{2},\eta }^{ \alpha _{1},\alpha _{2}} (t_{2}-y_{2};y_{1},y_{2} )=0. $$

By operating \({\mathcal{M}}_{s_{1},s_{2},\eta }^{\alpha _{1},\alpha _{2}}\) in (3.10) and using the last relation, we obtain

$$\begin{aligned} &{\mathcal{M}}_{s_{1},s_{2},\eta }^{\alpha _{1},\alpha _{2}} (h_{1};y_{1},y_{2} )-h_{1} (y_{1},y_{2} )\\ &\quad={\mathcal{M}}_{s_{1},s_{2}, \eta }^{\alpha _{1},\alpha _{2}} \biggl( \int _{y_{1}}^{t_{1}} (t_{1}-u_{1} ) \frac{\partial ^{2}h_{1} (u_{1},y_{2} )}{\partial u_{1}^{2}}\,du_{1};y_{1},y_{2} \biggr) \\ &\qquad{}+{\mathcal{M}}_{s_{1},s_{2},\eta }^{\alpha _{1},\alpha _{2}} \biggl( \int _{y_{2}}^{t_{2}} (t_{2}-u_{2} ) \frac{\partial ^{2}h_{1} (y_{1},u_{2} )}{\partial u_{2}^{2}}\,du_{2};y_{1},y_{2} \biggr) \\ &\quad=M_{s_{1},s_{2},\eta }^{\alpha _{1},\alpha _{2}} \biggl( \int _{y_{1}}^{t_{1}} (t_{1}-u_{1} ) \frac{\partial ^{2}h_{1} (u_{1},y_{2} )}{\partial u_{1}^{2}}\,du_{1};y_{1},y_{2} \biggr) \\ &\qquad{}- \biggl( \int _{y_{1}}^{\frac{(\eta +s_{1})y_{1}}{s_{1}}} \biggl( \frac{(\eta +s_{1})y_{1}}{s_{1}}-u_{1} \biggr) \frac{\partial ^{2}h_{1} (u_{1},y_{2} )}{\partial u_{1}^{2}}\,du_{1};y_{1},y_{2} \biggr) \\ &\qquad{}+M_{s_{1},s_{2},\eta }^{\alpha _{1},\alpha _{2}} \biggl( \int _{y_{2}}^{t_{2}} (t_{2}-u_{2} ) \frac{\partial ^{2}h_{1} (y_{1},u_{2} )}{\partial u_{2}^{2}}\,du_{2};y_{1},y_{2} \biggr) \\ &\qquad{}- \biggl( \int _{y_{2}}^{\frac{(\eta +s_{2})y_{2}}{s_{2}}} \biggl( \frac{(\eta +s_{2})y_{2}}{s_{2}}-u_{2} \biggr) \frac{\partial ^{2}h_{1} (y_{1},u_{2} )}{\partial u_{2}^{2}}\,du_{2};y_{1},y_{2} \biggr), \end{aligned}$$

which yields

$$\begin{aligned} &\bigl\vert {\mathcal{M}}_{s_{1},s_{2},\eta }^{\alpha _{1},\alpha _{2}} (h_{1};y_{1},y_{2} )-h_{1} (y_{1},y_{2} ) \bigr\vert \\ &\quad\leq \biggl(M_{s_{1},s_{2},\eta }^{\alpha _{1},\alpha _{2}} \bigl( (t_{1}-y_{1} )^{2};y_{1},y_{2} \bigr)+ \biggl( \frac{\eta y_{1}}{s_{1}} \biggr)^{2} \biggr) \Vert h_{1} \Vert _{C^{2}(I^{2})} \\ &\qquad{}+ \biggl(M_{s_{1},s_{2},\eta }^{\alpha _{1},\alpha _{2}} \bigl( (t_{2}-y_{2} )^{2};y_{1},y_{2} \bigr)+ \biggl( \frac{\eta y_{2}}{s_{2}} \biggr)^{2} \biggr) \Vert h_{1} \Vert _{C^{2}(I^{2})} \\ &\quad= \biggl(\delta _{s_{1}}^{2}(y_{1})+\delta _{s_{2}}^{2}(y_{2})+ \biggl(\frac{\eta y_{1}}{s_{1}} \biggr)^{2}+ \biggl( \frac{\eta y_{2}}{s_{2}} \biggr)^{2} \biggr) \Vert h_{1} \Vert _{C^{2}(I^{2})}. \end{aligned}$$

We can see that

$$\begin{aligned} \bigl\vert {\mathcal{M}}_{s_{1},s_{2},\eta }^{\alpha _{1},\alpha _{2}} (h;y_{1},y_{2} ) \bigr\vert \leq \bigl\vert M_{s_{1},s_{2},\eta }^{ \alpha _{1},\alpha _{2}} (h;y_{1},y_{2} ) \bigr\vert + \biggl\vert h \biggl( \frac{(\eta +s_{1})y_{1}}{s_{1}}, \frac{(\eta +s_{2})y_{2}}{s_{2}} \biggr) \biggr\vert + \bigl\vert h (y_{1},y_{2} ) \bigr\vert , \end{aligned}$$

which yields \(\vert {\mathcal{M}}_{s_{1},s_{2},\eta }^{\alpha _{1},\alpha _{2}} (h;y_{1},y_{2} ) \vert \leq 3\|h\|\) for any \(h\in C(I^{2})\). We therefore write

$$\begin{aligned} &\bigl\vert M_{s_{1},s_{2},\eta }^{\alpha _{1},\alpha _{2}} (h;y_{1},y_{2} )-h(y_{1},y_{2}) \bigr\vert \\ &\quad\leq \bigl\vert { \mathcal{M}}_{s_{1},s_{2}, \eta }^{\alpha _{1},\alpha _{2}} (h-h_{1};y_{1},y_{2} ) \bigr\vert + \bigl\vert h(y_{1},y_{2})-h_{1}(y_{1},y_{2}) \bigr\vert \\ &\qquad{}+ \bigl\vert {\mathcal{M}}_{s_{1},s_{2},\eta }^{\alpha _{1},\alpha _{2}} (h_{1};y_{1},y_{2} )-h_{1} (y_{1},y_{2} ) \bigr\vert \\ &\qquad{}+ \biggl\vert h \biggl(\frac{(\eta +s_{1})y_{1}}{s_{1}}, \frac{(\eta +s_{2})y_{2}}{s_{2}} \biggr)-h (y_{1},y_{2} ) \biggr\vert \\ &\quad\leq 4 \Vert h-h_{1} \Vert + \biggl(\delta _{s_{1}}^{2}(y_{1})+ \delta _{s_{2}}^{2}(y_{2})+ \biggl(\frac{\eta y_{1}}{s_{1}} \biggr)^{2}+ \biggl( \frac{\eta y_{2}}{s_{2}} \biggr)^{2} \biggr) \Vert h_{1} \Vert _{C^{2}(I^{2})} \\ &\qquad{}+\omega \biggl(h;\sqrt{ \biggl(\frac{\eta y_{1}}{s_{1}} \biggr)^{2}+ \biggl(\frac{\eta y_{2}}{s_{2}} \biggr)^{2}} \biggr). \end{aligned}$$

Now, taking \(\inf_{h_{1}\in C^{2}(I^{2})}\), we get

$$\begin{aligned} \bigl\vert M_{s_{1},s_{2},\eta }^{\alpha _{1},\alpha _{2}} (h;y_{1},y_{2} )-h(y_{1},y_{2}) \bigr\vert \leq 4K \bigl(h;\delta _{s_{1},s_{2}}(y_{1},y_{2}) \bigr)+\omega \biggl(h;\sqrt{ \biggl(\frac{\eta y_{1}}{s_{1}} \biggr)^{2}+ \biggl(\frac{\eta y_{2}}{s_{2}} \biggr)^{2}} \biggr), \end{aligned}$$

which completes the proof. □

The following corollary follows from Theorem 3.3 and inequality (3.9).

Corollary 3.4

Let \(h\in C(I^{2})\). Then

$$\begin{aligned} &\bigl\vert M_{s_{1},s_{2},\eta }^{\alpha _{1},\alpha _{2}} (h;y_{1},y_{2} )-h(y_{1},y_{2}) \bigr\vert \\ &\quad\leq C\omega _{2} \bigl(h;\sqrt{ \delta _{s_{1},s_{2}}(y_{1},y_{2})} \bigr)+\omega \biggl(h;\sqrt{ \biggl(\frac{\eta y_{1}}{s_{1}} \biggr)^{2}+ \biggl( \frac{\eta y_{2}}{s_{2}} \biggr)^{2}} \biggr). \end{aligned}$$

4 GBS operators of bivariate generalized Bernstein–Schurer type

For any compact real intervals X and Y, the function \(h:Y_{1}\times Y_{2}\to \mathbb{R}\) is B-bounded (or Bögel bounded) on \(Y_{1}\times Y_{2}\) if there exists \(H>0\) such that

$$ \bigl\vert \Delta _{(y_{1},y_{2})}h [u_{1},u_{2};y_{1},y_{2} ] \bigr\vert \leq H \quad\bigl(\forall (u_{1},u_{2} ), (y_{1},y_{2} )\in Y_{1}\times Y_{2} \bigr), $$

where \(\Delta _{(y_{1},y_{2})}h [u_{1},u_{2};y_{1},y_{2} ]\) is the mixed difference of h defined by

$$ \Delta _{(y_{1},y_{2})}h [u_{1},u_{2};y_{1},y_{2} ]=h (y_{1},y_{2} )-h (y_{1},u_{2} )-h (u_{1},y_{2} )+h (u_{1},u_{2} ). $$

A function h is said to be B-continuous (or Bögel continuous) at a point \((u_{1},u_{2})\) if

$$ \lim_{(y_{1},y_{2})\to (u_{1},u_{2})}\Delta _{(y_{1},y_{2})}h [u_{1},u_{2};y_{1},y_{2} ]=0 $$

for any \((u_{1},u_{2} ), (y_{1},y_{2} )\in Y_{1} \times Y_{2}\) (see [13]).

Given a function \(h\in C(I^{2})\), for any \(s_{1},s_{2}\in \mathbb{N}\), \(\eta \in \mathbb{Z}_{0}^{+}\), and \(\alpha _{1},\alpha _{2}\in [0,1]\), we define the generalized Boolean sum (or GBS) operators of the bivariate form of generalized Bernstein–Schurer operators (2.1) by

$$ \Phi _{s_{1},s_{2},\eta }^{\alpha _{1},\alpha _{2}} (h;y_{1},y_{2} )=M_{s_{1},s_{2},\eta }^{\alpha _{1},\alpha _{2}} \bigl(h (t_{1},y_{2} )+h (y_{1},t_{2} )-h (t_{1},t_{2} );y_{1},y_{2} \bigr),\quad \bigl( (y_{1},y_{2} )\in I_{1}^{2} \bigr), $$

or, equivalently, we write

$$\begin{aligned} \Phi _{s_{1},s_{2},\eta }^{\alpha _{1},\alpha _{2}} (h;y_{1},y_{2} )={}&\sum_{\ell _{1}=0}^{s_{1}+\eta } \sum_{ \ell _{2}=0}^{s_{2}+\eta }M_{s_{1}+\eta ,s_{2}+\eta ,\ell _{1},\ell _{2}}^{( \alpha _{1},\alpha _{2})} (y_{1},y_{2} ) \\ &{}\times \biggl(h \biggl(\frac{\ell _{1}}{s_{1}},y_{2} \biggr)+h \biggl(y_{1}, \frac{\ell _{2}}{s_{2}} \biggr)-h \biggl(\frac{\ell _{1}}{s_{1}}, \frac{\ell _{2}}{s_{2}} \biggr) \biggr). \end{aligned}$$

Note that \(\Phi _{s_{1},s_{2},\eta }^{\alpha _{1},\alpha _{2}} (h;y_{1},y_{2} )\) is well defined on \(C_{B}(I^{2})\) (the space of all B-continuous functions on \(I^{2}\)) into \(C(I^{2})\) and \(h\in C_{B}(I^{2})\) as well as linear and positive.

Recall that the mixed modulus of smoothness of \(h\in C_{B}(I^{2})\) is given by

$$\begin{aligned} \omega _{\mathrm{mixed}} (h;\delta _{1},\delta _{2} )={}&\sup \bigl\{ \bigl\vert \Delta _{(y_{1},y_{2})}h [t_{1},t_{2};y_{1},y_{2} ] \bigr\vert : \vert y_{1}-t_{1} \vert < \delta _{1}, \vert y_{2}-t_{2} \vert < \delta _{2}; \\ &{}(y_{1},y_{2}),(u_{1},u_{2})\in I^{2} \bigr\} \end{aligned}$$

for any \(\delta _{1},\delta _{2}>0\) (see [7, 9]).

A function h is B-differentiable (or Bögel differentiable) at the point \((u_{1},u_{2})\in Y_{1}\times Y_{2}\) if

$$ \lim_{(y_{1},y_{2})\to (u_{1},u_{2})} \frac{\Delta _{(y_{1},y_{2})}f[u_{1},u_{2};y_{1},y_{2}]}{(y_{1}-u_{1})(y_{2}-u_{2})} $$

exists. The limit is called B-differentiable of h at \((u_{1},u_{2})\) and denoted by \(D_{y_{1}y_{2}}h (u_{1},u_{2} )=D_{B} (h;u_{1},u_{2} )\). By \(D_{b}(Y_{1}\times Y_{2})\), we denote the set of all B-differentiable functions.

For more details and related results, we refer to [8, 12, 19, 22, 24, 39].

The following theorem gives an estimate of the rate of convergence of \(\Phi _{s_{1},s_{2},\eta }^{\alpha _{1},\alpha _{2}}\) to \(h\in C_{B}(I^{2})\).

Theorem 4.1

For any \(h\in C_{B}(I^{2})\), the inequality

$$ \bigl\vert \Phi _{s_{1},s_{2},\eta }^{\alpha _{1},\alpha _{2}} (h;y_{1},y_{2} )-h (y_{1},y_{2} ) \bigr\vert \leq 4~\omega _{\mathrm{mixed}} (h;\sqrt{\beta _{s_{1},\eta }},\sqrt{\beta _{s_{2},\eta }} ) $$

holds, where

$$ \beta _{s_{1},\eta }=\frac{3+\eta (1+\eta )}{s_{1}} \quad\textit{and}\quad \beta _{s_{2},\eta }= \frac{3+\eta (1+\eta )}{s_{2}}. $$


It follows from (4.3) and

$$ \omega _{\mathrm{mixed}} (h;\lambda _{2}\delta _{1},\lambda _{2}\delta _{2} )\leq (1+\lambda _{1} ) (1+ \lambda _{2} )\omega _{\mathrm{mixed}} (h;\delta _{1},\delta _{2} ) \quad(\lambda _{1},\lambda _{1}>0) $$


$$\begin{aligned} \bigl\vert \Delta _{(y_{1},y_{2})}h [t_{1},t_{2};y_{1},y_{2} ] \bigr\vert &\leq \omega _{\mathrm{mixed}} \bigl(h; \vert t_{1}-y_{1} \vert , \vert t_{2}-y_{2} \vert \bigr) \\ &\leq \biggl(1+\frac{ \vert t_{1}-y_{1} \vert }{\delta _{1}} \biggr) \biggl(1+ \frac{ \vert t_{2}-y_{2} \vert }{\delta _{2}} \biggr) \omega _{\mathrm{mixed}} (h; \delta _{1},\delta _{2} ) \end{aligned}$$

for all \((y_{1},y_{2}),(t_{1},t_{2})\in I^{2}\) and for any \(\delta _{1},\delta _{2}>0\). Rewrite (4.1) as

$$ h (y_{1},t_{2} )+h (t_{1},y_{2} )-h (t_{1},t_{2} )=h (y_{1},y_{2} )- \Delta _{(y_{1},y_{2})}h [t_{1},t_{2};y_{1},y_{2} ]. $$

Operating \(M_{s_{1},s_{2},\eta }^{\alpha _{1},\alpha _{2}}\) and using the definition of \(\Phi _{s_{1},s_{2},\eta }^{\alpha _{1},\alpha _{2}}\), we obtain

$$\begin{aligned} \Phi _{s_{1},s_{2},\eta }^{\alpha _{1},\alpha _{2}} (h;y_{1},y_{2} )=h (y_{1},y_{2} )M_{s_{1},s_{2},\eta }^{\alpha _{1}, \alpha _{2}} (e_{00};y_{1},y_{2} )-M_{s_{1},s_{2},\eta }^{ \alpha _{1},\alpha _{2}} \bigl(\Delta _{(y_{1},y_{2})}h [t_{1},t_{2};y_{1},y_{2} ];y_{1},y_{2} \bigr), \end{aligned}$$

which yields

$$\begin{aligned} \bigl\vert \Phi _{s_{1},s_{2},\eta }^{\alpha _{1},\alpha _{2}} (h;y_{1},y_{2} )-h (y_{1},y_{2} ) \bigr\vert \leq M_{s_{1},s_{2},\eta }^{ \alpha _{1},\alpha _{2}} \bigl( \bigl\vert \Delta _{(y_{1},y_{2})}h [t_{1},t_{2};y_{1},y_{2} ] \bigr\vert ;y_{1},y_{2} \bigr). \end{aligned}$$

Employing (4.4) and then using the Cauchy–Schwarz inequality, we get

$$\begin{aligned} & \bigl\vert \Phi _{s_{1},s_{2},\eta }^{\alpha _{1},\alpha _{2}} (h;y_{1},y_{2} )-h (y_{1},y_{2} ) \bigr\vert \\ &\quad \leq \Bigl(M_{s_{1},s_{2},\eta }^{\alpha _{1}, \alpha _{2}} (e_{00};y_{1},y_{2} )+\delta _{1}^{-1}\sqrt{M_{s_{1},s_{2}, \eta }^{\alpha _{1},\alpha _{2}} \bigl( (t_{1}-y_{1} )^{2};y_{1},y_{2} \bigr)} \\ &\qquad{} +\delta _{2}^{-1}\sqrt{M_{s_{1},s_{2},\eta }^{ \alpha _{1},\alpha _{2}} \bigl( (t_{2}-y_{2} )^{2};y_{1},y_{2} \bigr)} \\ &\qquad{} +\delta _{1}^{-1}\delta _{2}^{-1} \sqrt{M_{s_{1},s_{2}, \eta }^{\alpha _{1},\alpha _{2}} \bigl( (t_{1}-y_{1} )^{2};y_{1},y_{2} \bigr)M_{s_{1},s_{2},\eta }^{\alpha _{1},\alpha _{2}} \bigl( (t_{2}-y_{2} )^{2};y_{1},y_{2} \bigr)} \Bigr)\omega _{\mathrm{mixed}} (h; \delta _{1},\delta _{2} ). \end{aligned}$$

Using Corollary 2.2, we write

$$\begin{aligned} M_{s_{1},s_{2},\eta }^{\alpha _{1},\alpha _{2}} \bigl( (t_{1}-y_{1} )^{2};y_{1},y_{2} \bigr)&\leq \frac{y_{1}(1-y_{1})}{s_{1}}+ \frac{y_{1}(1-y_{1})(\eta +2)}{s_{1}^{2}}+ \frac{\eta ^{2}y_{1}^{2}}{s_{1}^{2}} \\ &\leq\frac{3+\eta (1+\eta )}{s_{1}}=\beta _{s_{1},\eta } \end{aligned}$$


$$\begin{aligned} M_{s_{1},s_{2},\eta }^{\alpha _{1},\alpha _{2}} \bigl( (t_{2}-y_{2} )^{2};y_{1},y_{2} \bigr)\leq \frac{3+\eta (1+\eta )}{s_{2}}= \beta _{s_{2},\eta }. \end{aligned}$$

We therefore obtain

$$\begin{aligned} \bigl\vert \Phi _{s_{1},s_{2},\eta }^{\alpha _{1},\alpha _{2}} (h;y_{1},y_{2} )-h (y_{1},y_{2} ) \bigr\vert \leq {}& \biggl(1+ \frac{1}{\delta _{1}}\sqrt{\frac{3+\eta (1+\eta )}{s_{1}}} \\ &{}+\frac{1}{\delta _{1}\delta _{2}}\sqrt{ \frac{3+\eta (1+\eta )}{s_{1}}}\sqrt{\frac{3+\eta (1+\eta )}{s_{2}}} \\ &{}+\frac{1}{\delta _{2}}\sqrt{\frac{3+\eta (1+\eta )}{s_{2}}} \biggr) \omega _{\mathrm{mixed}} (h;\delta _{1},\delta _{2} ), \end{aligned}$$

which gives the assertion of Theorem 4.1 by choosing \(\delta _{1}=\sqrt{\beta _{s_{1},\eta }}\) and \(\delta _{2}=\sqrt{\beta _{s_{2},\eta }}\). □

Finally, we study the order of approximation for B-differentiable functions of our operators \(\Phi _{s_{1},s_{2},\eta }^{\alpha _{1},\alpha _{2}}\).

Theorem 4.2

Suppose that \(h\in D_{b}(I^{2})\) and \(D_{B}h\) in \(B(I^{2})\) (the space of all bounded functions on \(I^{2}\)). Then

$$\begin{aligned} \bigl\vert \Phi _{s_{1},s_{2},\eta }^{\alpha _{1},\alpha _{2}} (h;y_{1},y_{2} )-h (y_{1},y_{2} ) \bigr\vert \leq \frac{N}{\sqrt{s_{1}s_{2}}} \biggl\{ \omega _{\mathrm{mixed}} \biggl(D_{B}h;\sqrt{ \frac{1}{s_{1}}},\sqrt{\frac{1}{s_{2}}} \biggr)+ \Vert D_{B}h \Vert _{ \infty } \biggr\} , \end{aligned}$$

where \(N>0\) is a constant.


Let \(h\in D_{b}(I^{2})\). Then, from (see [13], p. 62), we write

$$\begin{aligned} \Delta _{(y_{1},y_{2})}h[t_{1},t_{2};y_{1},y_{2}]=(t_{1}-y_{1}) (t_{2}-y_{2})D_{B}h (\alpha ,\gamma ) \end{aligned}$$

for \(y_{1}<\alpha <t_{1}\), \(y_{2}<\gamma <t_{2}\). Thus, we fairly have

$$\begin{aligned} D_{B}h (\alpha ,\gamma )=\Delta _{(y_{1},y_{2})}D_{B}h ( \alpha ,\gamma )+D_{B}h (\alpha ,y_{2} )+D_{B}h (y_{1},\gamma )-D_{B}h (y_{1},y_{2} ). \end{aligned}$$

Since \(D_{B}h\in B(I^{2})\), we have \(|D_{B}h(y_{1},y_{2})|\leq \|D_{B}h\|_{\infty }\). In view of the last two equalities, we obtain

$$\begin{aligned} & \bigl\vert M_{s_{1},s_{2},\eta }^{\alpha _{1},\alpha _{2}} \bigl(\Delta _{(y_{1},y_{2})}h[t_{1},t_{2};y_{1},y_{2}];y_{1},y_{2} \bigr) \bigr\vert \\ &\quad = \bigl\vert M_{s_{1},s_{2},\eta }^{\alpha _{1},\alpha _{2}} \bigl( (t_{1}-y_{1} ) (t_{2}-y_{2} )D_{B}h ( \alpha ,\gamma );y_{1},y_{2} \bigr) \bigr\vert \\ &\quad\leq M_{s_{1},s_{2},\eta }^{\alpha _{1},\alpha _{2}} \bigl( \vert t_{1}-y_{1} \vert \vert t_{2}-y_{2} \vert \bigl\vert \Delta _{y_{1},y_{2}}D_{B}h (\alpha ,\gamma ) \bigr\vert ;y_{1},y_{2} \bigr) \\ &\qquad{} +M_{s_{1},s_{2},\eta }^{\alpha _{1}, \alpha _{2}} \bigl( \vert t_{1}-y_{1} \vert \vert t_{2}-y_{2} \vert \bigl( \bigl\vert D_{B}h (\alpha ,y_{2} ) \bigr\vert + \bigl\vert D_{B}h (y_{1},\gamma ) \bigr\vert \\ &\qquad{} + \bigl\vert D_{B}h (y_{1},y_{2} ) \bigr\vert \bigr);y_{1},y_{2} \bigr) \\ &\quad \leq M_{s_{1},s_{2},\eta }^{\alpha _{1},\alpha _{2}} \bigl( \vert t_{1}-y_{1} \vert \vert t_{2}-y_{2} \vert \omega _{\mathrm{mixed}} \bigl(D_{B}h; \vert \alpha -y_{1} \vert , \vert \gamma -y_{2} \vert \bigr);y_{1},y_{2} \bigr) \\ &\qquad{} +3 \Vert D_{B}h \Vert _{\infty }~M_{s_{1},s_{2}, \eta }^{\alpha _{1},\alpha _{2}} \bigl( \vert t_{1}-y_{1} \vert \vert t_{2}-y_{2} \vert ;y_{1},y_{2} \bigr). \end{aligned}$$

Also, we have

$$\begin{aligned} \omega _{\mathrm{mixed}} \bigl(D_{B}h; \vert \alpha -y_{1} \vert , \vert \gamma -y_{2} \vert \bigr)& \leq \omega _{\mathrm{mixed}} \bigl(D_{B}h; \vert t_{1}-y_{1} \vert , \vert t_{2}-y_{2} \vert \bigr) \\ &\leq \biggl(1+\frac{ \vert t_{1}-y_{1} \vert }{\delta _{1}} \biggr) \biggl(1+ \frac{ \vert t_{2}-y_{2} \vert }{\delta _{2}} \biggr) \omega _{\mathrm{mixed}}(h;\delta _{1}, \delta _{2}). \end{aligned}$$

We thus have from (4.5) and (4.6) together with the Cauchy–Schwarz inequality that

$$\begin{aligned} &\bigl\vert \Phi _{s_{1},s_{2},\eta }^{\alpha _{1},\alpha _{2}} (h;y_{1},y_{2} )-h (y_{1},y_{2} ) \bigr\vert \\ &\quad= \bigl\vert M_{s_{1},s_{2},\eta }^{ \alpha _{1},\alpha _{2}} \bigl(\Delta _{(y_{1},y_{2})}h[t_{1},t_{2};y_{1},y_{2}];y_{1},y_{2} \bigr) \bigr\vert \\ &\quad\leq \bigl\{ M_{s_{1},s_{2},\eta }^{\alpha _{1},\alpha _{2}} \bigl( \vert t_{1}-y_{1} \vert \vert t_{2}-y_{2} \vert ;y_{1},y_{2} \bigr) \\ &\qquad{}+\delta _{1}^{-1}M_{s_{1},s_{2},\eta }^{\alpha _{1},\alpha _{2}} \bigl( (t_{1}-y_{1} )^{2} \vert t_{2}-y_{2} \vert ;y_{1},y_{2} \bigr) \\ &\qquad{}+\delta _{2}^{-1}M_{s_{1},s_{2},\eta }^{\alpha _{1},\alpha _{2}} \bigl( \vert t_{1}-y_{1} \vert (t_{2}-y_{2} )^{2};y_{1},y_{2} \bigr) \\ &\qquad{}+\delta _{1}^{-1}\delta _{2}^{-1}M_{s_{1},s_{2},\eta }^{\alpha _{1}, \alpha _{2}} \bigl( (t_{1}-y_{1} )^{2} (t_{2}-y_{2} )^{2};y_{1},y_{2} \bigr) \bigr\} \\ &\qquad{}\times \omega _{\mathrm{mixed}}(D_{B}h;\delta _{1}, \delta _{2}) \\ &\qquad{}+3 \Vert D_{B}h \Vert _{\infty }\sqrt {M_{s_{1},s_{2},\eta }^{\alpha _{1}, \alpha _{2}} \bigl( (t_{1}-y_{1} )^{2} (t_{2}-y_{2} )^{2};y_{1},y_{2} \bigr),} \end{aligned}$$

which gives

$$\begin{aligned} &\bigl\vert \Phi _{s_{1},s_{2},\eta }^{\alpha _{1},\alpha _{2}} (h;y_{1},y_{2} )-h (y_{1},y_{2} ) \bigr\vert \\ &\quad\leq \Bigl\{ \sqrt{M_{s_{1},s_{2}, \eta }^{\alpha _{1},\alpha _{2}} \bigl( (t_{1}-y_{1} )^{2} (t_{2}-y_{2} )^{2};y_{1},y_{2} \bigr)} \\ &\qquad{}+\delta _{1}^{-1}\sqrt{M_{s_{1},s_{2},\eta }^{\alpha _{1},\alpha _{2}} \bigl( (t_{1}-y_{1} )^{4} (t_{2}-y_{2} )^{2};y_{1},y_{2} \bigr)} \\ &\qquad{}+\delta _{2}^{-1}\sqrt{M_{s_{1},s_{2},\eta }^{\alpha _{1},\alpha _{2}} \bigl( (t_{1}-y_{1} )^{2} (t_{2}-y_{2} )^{4};y_{1},y_{2} \bigr)} \\ &\qquad{}+\delta _{1}^{-1}\delta _{2}^{-1}M_{s_{1},s_{2},\eta }^{\alpha _{1}, \alpha _{2}} \bigl( (t_{1}-y_{1} )^{2} (t_{2}-y_{2} )^{2};y_{1},y_{2} \bigr) \Bigr\} \\ &\qquad{}\times \omega _{\mathrm{mixed}}(D_{B}h;\delta _{1}, \delta _{2}) \\ &\qquad{}+3 \Vert D_{B}h \Vert _{\infty }\sqrt {M_{s_{1},s_{2},\eta }^{\alpha _{1}, \alpha _{2}} \bigl( (t_{1}-y_{1} )^{2} (t_{2}-y_{2} )^{2};y_{1},y_{2} \bigr)}. \end{aligned}$$

By straightforward calculation (from Corollary 2.2), we obtain

$$\begin{aligned} &M_{s_{1},s_{2},\eta }^{\alpha _{1},\alpha _{2}} \bigl( (t_{1}-y_{1} )^{2};y_{1},y_{2} \bigr)\leq \frac{3+\eta (1+\eta )}{s_{1}}= \frac{N_{1}}{s_{1}}, \quad\text{say} \\ &M_{s_{1},s_{2},\eta }^{\alpha _{1},\alpha _{2}} \bigl( (t_{2}-y_{2} )^{2};y_{1},y_{2} \bigr)\leq \frac{3+\eta (1+\eta )}{s_{2}}= \frac{N_{1}}{s_{2}}, \quad\text{say} \\ &M_{s_{1},s_{2},\eta }^{\alpha _{1},\alpha _{2}} \bigl( (t_{1}-y_{1} )^{4};y_{1},y_{2} \bigr)\leq \frac{N_{2}}{s_{1}^{2}} \quad\text{and}\quad M_{s_{1},s_{2},\eta }^{\alpha _{1},\alpha _{2}} \bigl( (t_{2}-y_{2} )^{4};y_{1},y_{2} \bigr)\leq \frac{N_{2}}{s_{2}^{2}} \end{aligned}$$

for some constant \(N_{1},N_{2}>0\). Also

$$\begin{aligned} M_{s_{1},s_{2},\eta }^{\alpha _{1},\alpha _{2}} \bigl( (t_{1}-y_{1} )^{2m} (t_{2}-y_{2} )^{2n};y_{1},y_{2} \bigr)={}&M_{s_{1},s_{2}, \eta }^{\alpha _{1},\alpha _{2}} \bigl( (t_{1}-y_{1} )^{2m};y_{1},y_{2} \bigr) \\ &{}\times M_{s_{1},s_{2},\eta }^{\alpha _{1},\alpha _{2}} \bigl( (t_{2}-y_{2} )^{2n};y_{1},y_{2} \bigr) \end{aligned}$$

for \((t_{1}-y_{1} ), (t_{2}-y_{2} )\in I^{2}\) and \(m,n=1,2\). From the above and by choosing \(\delta _{1}=\sqrt{\frac{1}{s_{1}}}\) and \(\delta _{2}=\sqrt{\frac{1}{s_{2}}}\), we have

$$\begin{aligned} &\bigl\vert \Phi _{s_{1},s_{2},\eta }^{\alpha _{1},\alpha _{2}} (h;y_{1},y_{2} )-h (y_{1},y_{2} ) \bigr\vert \\ &\quad\leq \biggl\{ N_{1}\sqrt{ \frac{1}{s_{1}s_{2}}}+2\sqrt{ \frac{N_{1}N_{2}}{s_{1}s_{2}}}+N_{1}^{2} \sqrt{\frac{1}{s_{1}s_{2}}} \biggr\} \\ &\qquad{}\times \omega _{\mathrm{mixed}} \biggl(D_{B}h;\sqrt{ \frac{1}{s_{1}}},\sqrt{ \frac{1}{s_{2}}} \biggr)+3 \Vert D_{B}h \Vert _{\infty }N_{1}\sqrt{ \frac{1}{s_{1}s_{2}}} \\ &\quad=\frac{1}{\sqrt{s_{1}s_{2}}} \biggl\{ \bigl(N_{1}+2\sqrt{N_{1}N_{2}}+N_{1}^{2} \bigr)\omega _{\mathrm{mixed}} \biggl(D_{B}h;\sqrt{ \frac{1}{s_{1}}},\sqrt{ \frac{1}{s_{2}}} \biggr) \\ &\qquad{}+3N_{1} \Vert D_{B}h \Vert _{\infty } \biggr\} , \end{aligned}$$

which yields

$$\begin{aligned} \bigl\vert \Phi _{s_{1},s_{2},\eta }^{\alpha _{1},\alpha _{2}} (h;y_{1},y_{2} )-h (y_{1},y_{2} ) \bigr\vert \leq \frac{N}{\sqrt{s_{1}s_{2}}} \biggl\{ \omega _{\mathrm{mixed}} \biggl(D_{B}h;\sqrt{ \frac{1}{s_{1}}},\sqrt{\frac{1}{s_{2}}} \biggr)+ \Vert D_{B}h \Vert _{ \infty } \biggr\} , \end{aligned}$$


$$ N=\max \bigl\{ N_{1}+2\sqrt{N_{1}N_{2}}+N_{1}^{2},3N_{1} \bigr\} , $$

which completes the proof. □
