#### Abstract

We generalize the Euler numbers and polynomials by the generalized -Euler numbers and polynomials . For the complement theorem, have interesting different properties from the Euler polynomials and we observe an interesting phenomenon of βscatteringβ of the zeros of the the generalized Euler polynomials in complex plane.

#### 1. Introduction

The Euler numbers and polynomials possess many interesting properties and arising in many areas of mathematics and physics. Recently, many mathematicians have studied in the area of the Euler numbers and polynomials (see [1β15]). In [14], we introduced that Euler equation has symmetrical roots for (see [14]). It is the aim of this paper to observe an interesting phenomenon of βscatteringβ of the zeros of the the generalized -Euler polynomials in complex plane. Throughout this paper we use the following notations. By we denote the ring of -adic rational integers, denotes the field of -adic rational numbers, denotes the completion of algebraic closure of denotes the set of natural numbers, denotes the ring of rational integers, denotes the field of rational numbers, denotes the set of complex numbers, and . Let be the normalized exponential valuation of with . When one talks of -extension, is considered in many ways such as an indeterminate, a complex number , or -adic number . If one normally assumes that . If , we normally assume that so that for .

For Kim defined the fermionic -adic -integral on : (cf. [5β7]).

If we take in (1.2), then we easily see that From (1.3), we obtain where (cf. [1β15]).

As a well-known definition, the Euler polynomials are defined by with the usual convention of replacing by . In the special case, are called the th Euler numbers (cf. [1β15]).

Our aim in this paper is to define the generalized -Euler numbers and polynomials . We investigate some properties which are related to the generalized -Euler numbers and polynomials . In particular, distribution of roots for is different from ^{β}s. We also derive the existence of a specific interpolation function which interpolate the generalized -Euler numbers and polynomials.

Throughout the numerical experiments, we can finally conclude that has not reflection symmetry analytic complex functions. However, we observe that has reflection symmetry (see Figures 1, 2, and 3). The obvious corollary is that the zeros of will also inherit these symmetries: where denotes complex conjugation (see Figures 1, 2 and 3).
