Brief Communications

We prove that max |p′(x)|, where p runs over the set of all algebraic polynomials of degree not higher than n ≥ 3 bounded in modulus by 1 on [−1, 1], is not lower than \( {{\left( {n - 1} \right)} \mathord{\left/{\vphantom {{\left( {n - 1} \right)} {\sqrt {1 - {x^2}} }}} \right.} {\sqrt {1 - {x^2}} }} \) for all x ∈ (−1, 1) such that \( \left| x \right| \in \bigcup\nolimits_{k = 0}^{\left[ {{n \mathord{\left/{\vphantom {n 2}} \right.} 2}} \right]} {\left[ {\cos \frac{{2k + 1}}{{2\left( {n - 1} \right)}}\pi, \cos \frac{{2k + 1}}{{2n}}\pi } \right]} \).
