We obtain the strengthened Kolmogorov comparison theorem in asymmetric case.
In particular, it gives us the opportunity to obtain the following strengthened Kolmogorov inequality in the asymmetric case:
\|x^{(k)}_{\pm }\|_{\infty}\le \frac
{\|\varphi _{r-k}( \cdot \;;\alpha ,\beta )_\pm \|_{\infty }}
{E_0(\varphi _r( \cdot \;;\alpha ,\beta ))^{1-k/r}_{\infty }}
for functions $$$x \in L^r_{\infty }(\mathbb{R})$$$, where
|||x|||_\infty:=\frac12 \sup_{\alpha ,\beta}\{ |x(\beta)-x(\alpha)|:x'(t)\neq 0 \;\;\forall
t\in (\alpha ,\beta) \}
$$$k,r \in \mathbb{N}$$$, $$$k<r$$$, $$$\alpha, \beta > 0$$$, $$$\varphi_r( \cdot \;;\alpha ,\beta )_r$$$ is the asymmetric perfect spline of Euler of order $$$r$$$ and $$$E_0(x)_\infty $$$ is the best uniform approximation of the function $$$x$$$ by constants.
