Abstract: We show that for certain translation invariant spaces $ S$, a necessary and sufficient condition for the eventual denseness of the corresponding scaled spaces $ {S_h}$ is that $ S$ contain a stable and locally supported partition of unity. These results have been motivated by recent work on approximation by multivariate piecewise polynomials on regular meshes.
