Korovkin type approximation theorems are useful tools to check whether a given sequence of positive linear operators on of all continuous functions on the real interval is an approximation process. That is, these theorems exhibit a variety of test functions which assure that the approximation property holds on the whole space if it holds for them. Such a property was discovered by Korovkin in 1953 for the functions 1, , and in the space as well as for the functions 1, cos, and sin in the space of all continuous 2 -periodic functions on the real line. In this paper, we use the notion of -statistical -summability to prove the Korovkin second approximation theorem. We also study the rate of -statistical -summability of a sequence of positive linear operators defined from into .
