Abstract: For a partition of the unit interval, , , denotes the space of piecewise-polynomials of order *k* and of smoothness ; this space can be represented as the graph of the appropriate linear operator between two finite-dimensional Hilbert spaces. It gives an approach to the C. de Boor problem, 1972, on uniform boundedness (with respect to ) in the -norm of the orthogonal projections onto , and we give the detailed analysis of a quadratic pencil (matrix-valued polynomial of the second degree) which appears in the case of a geometric mesh if . The explicit calculations and estimates of zeros of the "characteristic" polynomial show that in the case , me geometric mesh with the parameter *x*, , the orthogonal projectors are uniformly bounded.
