Abstract

In 1953 P. P. Korovkin proved that if (Tn) is a sequence of positive linear operators defined on the space C of continuous real 2 π-periodic functions and lim Tnf = f uniformly for f = 1, cos and sin, then lim Tnf = f uniformly for all f xs2208 C. Quantitative versions of this result have been given, where the rate of convergence is given in terms of that of the test functions 1, cos and sin, and the modulus of continuity of f. We extend this result by giving a quantitative version of Korovkin's theorem for compact connected abelian groups.
