Abstract: We examine the relationship between the analytic properties of continuous functions on $ [ - 1,1]$ and the location of the roots of the sequence of best polynomial approximations. We show that if the approximants have no zeros in a certain ellipse then the function being approximated must be analytic in this ellipse. We also show that the rate at which the zeros of the $ n$th approximant tend to the interval $ [ - 1,1]$ determines the global differentiability of the function under consideration.
