Markov and Bernstein type Inequalities in Lp for Classes of Polynomials with Constraints Academic Article uri icon


  • The Markov-type inequality is proved for all real algebraic polynomials f of degree at most n having at most k, with 0 ≤ k ≤ n, zeros (counting multiplicities) in the open unit disk of the complex plane, and for all p > 0, where c(p) = cp + 1(l + p−2) with some absolute constant c > 0. This inequality has been conjectured since 1983 when the L∈ case of the above result was proved. It improves and generalizes many earlier results. Up to the multiplicative constant c(p)> 0 the above inequality is sharp. A sharp Bernstein-type analogue for real trigonometric polynomials is also established, which is interesting on its own, and plays a key role in the proof of the Markov-type inequality. © 1995 The London Mathematical Society.
