We generalize the Euler numbers and polynomials by the generalized 𝑀 -Euler numbers 𝐸 𝑛 , 𝑀 ( π‘Ž ) and polynomials 𝐸 𝑛 , 𝑀 ( π‘₯ ∢ π‘Ž ) . For the complement theorem, 𝐸 𝑛 , 𝑀 ( π‘₯ ∢ π‘Ž ) have interesting different properties from the Euler polynomials and we observe an interesting phenomenon of “scattering” of the zeros of the the generalized Euler polynomials 𝐸 𝑛 , 𝑀 ( π‘₯ ∢ π‘Ž ) in complex plane.
