Identities of Symmetry for Higher-Order Generalized -Euler Polynomials
We investigate the properties of symmetry in two variables related to multiple Euler --function which interpolates higher-order -Euler polynomials at negative integers. From our investigation, we can derive many interesting identities of symmetry in two variables related to generalized higher-order -Euler polynomials and alternating generalized -power sums.
Throughout this paper, the notations , , , and denote the sets of positive integers, integers, real numbers, and complex numbers, respectively, and . Let be a Dirichlet character with with conductor . Then the generalized Euler polynomials attached to are defined by the following generating function (see [1–3]): The generalized Euler polynomials of order attached to are also defined by the generating function: When , are called the generalized Euler numbers attached to (see [2, 4]).
In [4, 8], Kim initiated to consider various -extensions (or -extensions) of Euler numbers and polynomials and constructed analytic continuations which interpolate his -numbers and polynomials. Until recently, many authors have studied -Euler or -Euler polynomials due to him (see [1–21]). In , Kim defined the -extension of generalized higher-order Euler polynomials attached to which is given by the generating function: where and .
Note that When , are called the -extension of generalized higher-order Euler numbers attached to .
We find from (4) that with the usual convention about replacing by .
In , Dirichlet-type multiple -function is defined by Kim to be where and , with .
By using Cauchy residue theorem, we get In this paper, we investigate certain properties of symmetry in two variables related to Dirichlet-type multiple -function which interpolates the -extension of generalized higher-order Euler polynomials attached to at negative integers. From our investigation, we can derive many interesting identities of symmetry in two variables related to -extension of generalized higher-order Euler polynomials and alternating generalized -power sums.
