### Functions approximated by rolling epicycle curves

Imagine a decreasing sequence of (positive) radii $r_1 > r_2 > r_3 > \cdots$ and a series of nested circles $C_1 \supset C_2 \supset C_3 \supset \cdots$ with these radii, initially each ...

### Padé approximations of $e$

The following question came up in the analysis of some algorithm. Let $R_{s,t}(z)$ be the Padé approximants of $e^z$, and define $r_{s,t} = R_{s,t}(1)$. Using the explicit expression for the error ...

### On derivatives of polynomials majorized by $\max(1,|x|^d)$

In the course of generalizing the Bernstein-Markov theorem to normed space, Harris came up with the following question. Suppose that $p$ is a real polynomial satisfying $|p(x)| \leq (1+|x|)^d$. ...

### The proximality of low rank function approximation

The paper "Best $n$-Dimensional approximation to sets of functions" by A. L. Brown in 1964 gave a negative answer to the following question: Q1: Is there for a given integer $n$ always a best ...

### Approximation of continuous functions by Lipschitz functions in the topology of uniform convergence on compact sets

I was involved into this subject when I answered this question from MSE. Trying to generalize my answer, I am thinking about a following Question. Let $X$ and $Y$ be metric spaces. When each ...

### Greedy interpolation of functions

Let $f:[-1,1]\rightarrow \mathbb{R}$ be a continuous function. Consider the following greedy algorithm for interpolation: Set $r_0 = f$. for $k = 0,1,\ldots,$ Find the location of the global ...

### Is there an absolutely continuous function $f$

Is there an absolutely continuous function $f$ satisfying $$|f(x+\delta)+f(x-\delta)-2f(x)|\leq \mbox{const}\frac{|\delta|}{\log \frac{1}{|\delta|}},\,\,\, |\delta|<1,$$ which is not $C^{1}$?

### Rational interpolation: Error bounds for coefficients

The following question was asked on MSE, but might be more suitable here. Assume there is a rational function $$f:x\mapsto \frac{\sum_{i=0}^m{a_ix^i}}{1+\sum_{j=1}^n{b_jx^j}}$$ of type $(m,n)$ with ...

### On Artin-Hironaka lemma and Galois theory

Let $A=k[[t]]$ Let $B$ a flat $A$-finite algebra which is etale and Galois at the generic point. Then by Artin lemma 3.12 (ii) in his IHES paper on approximation, we know that there exists an integer ...

### A.G. Vitushkin's “Easily representable families of functions” - can it be generalized?

Background In his monograph "Estimation of the complexity of the tabulation problem" (translated into English as "Theory of the Transmission and Processing of Information") Vitushkin studies ...

### Worst-case error and Cramer-Rao Lower Bound - is there any mathematical relation between them?

I would like to understand the relation (if any) between the Cramer-Rao Lower Bound of estimation theory and the following simple definition of "reconstruction accuracy" which doesn't use any ...

### Markov-type inequalities with arbitrary exponents

By a Markov-type inequality I mean an inequality of the form $$\| p^{(k)} \| \leq \lambda_{k,n} \| p \|,\quad \forall p \in U_n,$$ for some $\lambda_{k,n} > 0$, where $U_n \subset L^\infty[-1,1]$ ...
