The concept of weighted statistical convergence was introduced and studied by Karakaya and Chishti (2009) [7]. In this paper, we modify the definition of weighted statistical convergence and find its relationship with the concept of statistical summability ((N) over bar, p(n)) due to Moricz and Orhan (2004) [10]. We apply this new summability method to prove a Korovkin type approximation theorem by using the test functions 1, e(-x), e(-2x). We apply the classical Baskakov operator to construct an example in support of our result. (C) 2012 Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved.
