Notions of local and asymptotic approximations of a nonlinear mapping F between normed linear spaces by a sum of N ${k_i}$-homogeneous operators are defined and investigated. It is shown that the approximating operators inherit from F properties related to compactness and measures of noncompactness. Nets of equi-approximable operators with collectively compact (or bounded) approximates, which arise in approximate solutions of integral and operator equations, are studied with particular reference to pointwise (or weak convergence) properties. As a by-product, the well-known result that the Fréchet (or asymptotic) derivative of a compact operator is compact is generalized in several directions and to families of operators.
