Selected paper from DocServer
Peter Borwein, Tamas Erdelyi


The principal result of this paper is the establishment of the essentially sharp Markov-type inequality $$\|xP^{\prime}(x)\|_{L_p[0,1]} \leq \left(1/p+12 \left(F{\sum^n_{j=0}} (\lambda_j + 1/p)\right)\right) \|P\|_{L_p[0,1]}$$ for every $P \in \text{span}\{x^{\lambda_0}, x^{\lambda_1}, \ldots, x^{\lambda_n}\}$ with distinct real exponents $\lambda_j$ greater than $-1/p$ and for every $p \in [1, \infty]$. A remarkable corollary of the above is the Nikolskii-type inequality $$\|y^{1/p}P(y)\|_{L_\infty[0,1]} \leq 13 \left({\sum^n_{j=0}} (\lambda_j + 1/p)\right)^{1/p} \|P\|_{L_p[0,1]}$$ for every $P \in \text{\rm span}\{x^{\lambda_0}, x^{\lambda_1}, \ldots, x^{\lambda_n}\}$ with distinct real exponents $\lambda_j$ greater than $-1/p$ and for every $p \in [1, \infty]$. Some related results are also discussed.


Membership to CARMA offers many benefits and is available by invitation to all University of Newcastle academic staff. Associate membership, also by invitation, is available to external researchers and practitioners for three-year renewable terms. Associate members are expected to visit CARMA with some frequency, typically for a total of three to four weeks in a year, and to be involved in one or more ongoing research projects with CARMA members. CARMA is able to assist with the travel and living costs of such visits.
