In the one-dimensional case, Jackson's inequality and its converse for weighted algebraic polynomial approximation, as well as many important, weighted polynomial inequalities, such as Bernstein, Marcinkiewicz, Nikolskii, Schur, Remez, etc., have been proved recently by Giuseppe Mastroianni and Vilmos Totik under minimal assumption on the weights. In most cases this minimal assumption is the doubling condition. In this paper, we establish Jackson's theorem and its Stechkin-type converse for spherical polynomial approximation with respect to doubling weights on the unit sphere.
