A Bernstein Type Inequality for Derivatives of Rational Functions on Two Intervals

During this paper we determine an inequality for derivatives of rational fuinctions with a hard and fast denominator generalizing V. S. Videnskii's inequality to the case of 2 periods. To end up its asymptotic exactness, we use a brand new illustration of Akhiezer-Zolotarev fractions with the least deviation from zero on durations.
