article description
In this paper, we consider the problem of approximating a function by Bernstein-type polynomials that preserve the integral and non-negativity of the original function on the interval [0, 1], obtaining the Kantorovich-Bernstein polynomials, but providing a novel approach with advantages in numerical analysis. We then develop a Markov finite approximation method based on piecewise Bernstein-type polynomials for the computation of stationary densities of Markov operators, providing numerical results for piecewise constant and piecewise linear algorithms. © 2009 Taylor & Francis.
