#### Abstract

We define the incomplete bivariate Fibonacci and Lucas polynomials. In the case , , we obtain the incomplete Fibonacci and Lucas numbers. If , , we have the incomplete Pell and Pell-Lucas numbers. On choosing , , we get the incomplete generalized Jacobsthal number and besides for the incomplete generalized Jacobsthal-Lucas numbers. In the case , , , we have the incomplete Fibonacci and Lucas numbers. If , , , , we obtain the Fibonacci and Lucas numbers. Also generating function and properties of the incomplete bivariate Fibonacci and Lucas polynomials are given.

#### 1. Introduction

Djordjević introduced incomplete generalized Fibonacci and Lucas numbers using explicit formulas of generalized Fibonacci and Lucas numbers in [1]. In [2] incomplete Fibonacci and Lucas numbers are given as follows: where . Note that for the case incomplete Fibonacci numbers are reduced to Fibonacci numbers and for the case incomplete Lucas numbers are reduced to Lucas numbers in [2]. Also the authors considered the generating functions of the incomplete Fibonacci and Lucas numbers in [3]. In [4] Djordjević and Srivastava defined incomplete generalized Jacobsthal and Jacobsthal-Lucas numbers.

The generalized Fibonacci and Lucas -numbers were studied in [5, 6]. Incomplete Fibonacci and Lucas -numbers are defined by for in [7]. In [8] the authors introduced incomplete Pell and Pell-Lucas -numbers.

The generalized bivariate Fibonacci -polynomials and generalized bivariate Lucas -polynomials are defined the recursion for with and with in [5]. When , . In [5], the authors obtained some relations for these polynomials sequences. In addition, in [5], the explicit formula of bivariate Fibonacci -polynomials is and the explicit formula of bivariate Lucas -polynomials is In this paper, we defined incomplete bivariate Fibonacci and Lucas -polynomials. We generalize incomplete Fibonacci and Lucas numbers, incomplete generalized Fibonacci numbers, incomplete generalized Jacobsthal numbers, incomplete Fibonacci and Lucas -numbers, incomplete Pell and Pell-Lucas -numbers.
