Abstract

The aim of this paper is to extend the classical maximal convergence theory of Bernstein and Walsh for holomorphic functions in the complex plane to real analytic functions in R^N. In particular, we investigate the polynomial approximation behavior for functions $F: L to C, L= (Re z, Im z ) : z in K$, of the type $F= g overline h$, where g and h are holomorphic in a neighborhood of a compact set $K subset C^N$. To this end the maximal convergence number $rho(S_c,f)$ for continuous functions f defined on a compact set $S_c subset C^N$ is connected to a maximal convergence number $rho(S_r,F)$ for continuous functions F defined on a compact set $S_r subset R^N$.
