#### Abstract

We obtain some new generating functions for -Hahn polynomials and give their proofs based on the homogeneous -difference operator.

#### 1. Introduction

Throughout this paper we suppose that , , and the -shifted factorials are defined by Clearly, We also adopt the following compact notation for the multiple -shifted factorials: The basic hypergeometric series or -series are defined by Euler identity is as follows: The -binomial theorem is as follows: The usual -differential operator or -derivative operator is defined by (see [1, Page 177, (2.1)]) In [1], Chen and Liu introduced the -exponential operator as follows (see [1, Page 17, (2.5)]): and they get the -operator identity of (see [1, Page 178, Theorems 2.2 and 2.3]) as follows: Recently Chen et al. [2] introduced the following homogeneous -difference and the homogeneous -difference operator : They obtained some properties of as follows: The classical Rogers-Szegö polynomial is defined by means of the generating function: obviously, we have The homogeneous Rogers-Szegö polynomial is defined by where . Clearly, are the Cauchy polynomials with the following generating function: From the above properties, we have
