Abstract
In this paper we prove the sharp inequality
$$ P_n^{(s)}(x)\leq
P_n^{(s)}(1)\bigl(x^n +\frac{n1}{2 s+1}(1x^n)\bigr),$$
where
$P_n^{(s)}(x)$ is the classical ultraspherical polynomial of
degree $n$ and order $s\ge n\frac{1+\sqrt 5}{4}$. This inequality
can be refined in $[0,z_n^s]$ and $[z_n^s,1]$, where $z_n^s$
denotes the largest zero of $P_n^{(s)}(x)$.
