On the variation of the Bernstein polynomials of a function of unbounded variation

Martin Edward Price

Vol. 27 (1968), No. 1, 119–122
Abstract

The behavior of the ordinary Bernstein polynomials, Bnf, for discontinuous functions f can be quite erratic. The purpose of this note is to give an example of a function f which is quite irregular on the rationals but such that the total variation, V Bnf of Bnf tends to zero with n.
