Abstract

Many papers used the algebraic polynomials to approximate functions in ${{L}}_{{p}}$ space for $0<p<1$. Few are introduced for the convex algebraic polynomials best approximation. But no one proves direct Theorems for constrained convex approximation using smooth interpolatory piecewise polynomials for functions in ${{L}}_{{p}}$, $0<p<1$. That is what we shall introduce here.
