Kergin interpolants at the roots of unity approximate C2 functions

We establish a new formula for Kergin interpolation in the plane and use it to prove that the Kergin interpolation polynomials at the roots of unity of a function of classC 2 in a neighborhood of the unit disc\({\mathbb{D}}\) converge uniformly to the function on\({\mathbb{D}}\).
