- Lebesgue constant
Two kinds of constants are usually called Lebesgue constants (after
* In the process of
interpolation, the Lebesgue constants (with respect to a set of nodes) measure the precision of the polynomial interpolationat those nodes in regard with the best polynomial approximation.
approximation theory, the Lebesgue constants are related to Fourier series.
