Abstract: In this paper we prove the existence of Chebyshev quadrature for three new weight functions which are quite different from the two known examples given by Ullman [15] and Byrd and Stalla [2]. In particular, we indicate a simple method to construct weight functions for which there exist infinitely many Chebyshev quadrature rules.
