On the remainder of Gaussian quadrature formulas for Bernstein-Szegő weight functions. (English) Zbl 0796.41025
Summary: We give an explicit expression for the kernel of the error functional for Gaussian quadrature formulas with respect to weight functions of Bernstein-Szegő type, i.e., weight functions of the form \((1-x)^ \alpha (1+x)^ \beta/ \rho(x)\), \(x\in (-1,1)\), where \(\alpha,\beta\in \{-{1\over 2}, {1\over 2}\}\) and \(\rho\) is a polynomial of arbitrary degree which is positive on \([-1,1]\). With the help of this result the norm of the error functional can easily be calculated explicitly for a wide subclass of these weight functions.
