Abstract: We analyze the approximation properties of some interpolation operators and some $L_\omega ^2$-orthogonal projection operators related to systems of polynomials which are orthonormal with respect to a weight function $\omega ({x_1}, \ldots ,{x_d})$, $d \geqslant 1$. The error estimates for the Legendre system and the Chebyshev system of the first kind are given in the norms of the Sobolev spaces $H_\omega ^s$. These results are useful in the numerical analysis of the approximation of partial differential equations by spectral methods.
