Abstract

One of the most important theorems used in constructive theory of functions is called Berstein's "lethary" theorem [3]. The theorem states that if is a sequence of nonnegative numbers with then there exists a function such that dist for , where C[0,1] denotes the Banach space of all continuous, real-valued functions defined on the interval with supremum norm, and denotes the space of all polynomials of degree . In this talk, after examining the developments in this theory [1], we present a lethargic theorem for Fr ́echet spaces [2]. This is joint work with G. Lewicki.
