Elementary solutions of the Bernstein problem on two intervals
First we note that the best polynomial approximation to vertical bar x vertical bar on the set, which consists of an interval on the positive half-axis and a point on the negative half-axis, can be given by means of the classical Chebyshev polynomials. Then we explore the cases when a solution of the related problem on two intervals can be given in elementary functions.
