## Abstract

The main purpose of this paper is to study on generating functions of the -Genocchi numbers and polynomials. We prove new relation for the generalized -Genocchi numbers which is related to the -Genocchi numbers and -Bernoulli numbers. By applying Mellin transformation and derivative operator to the generating functions, we define -Genocchi zeta and -functions, which are interpolated -Genocchi numbers and polynomials at negative integers. We also give some applications of generalized -Genocchi numbers.

## 1. Introduction Definitions and Notations

In [1], Jang et al. gave new formulae on Genocchi numbers. They defined poly-Genocchi numbers to give the relation between Genocchi numbers, Euler numbers, and poly-Genocchi numbers. In [2], Kim et al. constructed new generating functions of the -analogue Eulerian numbers and -analogue Genocchi numbers. They gave relations between Bernoulli numbers, Euler numbers, and Genocchi numbers. They also defined Genocchi zeta functions which interpolate these numbers at negative integers. Kim [3] gave new concept of the -extension of Genocchi numbers and gave some relations between -Genocchi polynomials and -Euler numbers. In this paper, by using generating function of this numbers, we study on -Genocchi zeta and -functions. In [4], Kim constructed -Genocchi numbers and polynomials. By using these numbers and polynomials, he proved the -analogue of alternating sums of powers of consecutive integers due to Euler:

(cf. [4]), where if

and the numbers are called -Genocchi numbers which are defined by

Note that (cf. [3, 5–9]). The Euler numbers are usually defined by means of the following generating function (cf. [10–16]):

The Genocchi numbers are usually defined by means of the following generating function (cf. [12, 13]):

These numbers are classical and important in number theory. In [12], Kim defined generating functions of the -Genocchi numbers and -Euler numbers as follows:

Kim [17] defined the ferminoic and deformic expression of -adic -Volkenborn integral at and He constructed integral equation of the fermionic expression of -adic -Volkenborn integral at By using this integral equation, he defined new generating functions of -Euler numbers and polynomials. By using derivative operator to this functions, he constructed new -zeta, --functions and -adic --functions, which are interpolated -Euler numbers and polynomials. He also gave some applications which are the formulae of the trigonometric functions by applying ferminoic and deformic expression of -adic -Volkenborn integral at and Kim and Rim [18] defined two-variable -function. They gave main properties of this function. In [6], Kim constructed the two-variable -adic --function which interpolates the generalized -Bernoulli polynomials attached to Dirichlet character. In [19], Simsek et al. constructed the two-variable Dirichlet --function and the two-variable multiple Dirichlet-type Changhee --function. In [8, 20], Simsek defined generating functions, which are interpolates twisted Bernoulli numbers and polynomials, twisted Euler numbers and polynomials. He[21] also gave new generating functions which produce -Genocchi zeta functions and --series with attached to Dirichlet character. Therefore, by using these generating functions, he constructed new -analogue of Hardy-Berndt sums. He gave relations between these sums, -Genocchi zeta functions and --series as well,

We summarize our work as follows. In Section 2, we study on generating functions of the -Genocchi numbers and polynomials. By using infinite and finite series, we give some definitions of the -Genocchi numbers and polynomials. We find new relations between generalized -Genocchi numbers with attached to -Genocchi numbers and Barnes' type Changhee -Bernoulli numbers. In Section 3, by applying Mellin transformation and derivative operator to the generating functions of the -Genocchi numbers, we construct -Genocchi zeta and -functions, which are interpolated -Genocchi numbers and polynomials at negative integers. We also give some new relations related to these numbers and polynomials.

## 2. -genocchi Number and Polynomials

## 3. -genocchi Zeta and -Functions

In recent years, many mathematicians and physicians have investigated zeta functions, multiple zeta functions, -series, -Genocchi zeta, and -functions, and -Bernoulli, Euler, and Genocchi numbers and polynomials mainly because of their interest and importance. These functions and numbers are not only used in complex analysis, but also used in -adic analysis and other areas. In particular, multiple zeta functions occur within the context of Knot theory, quantum field theory, applied analysis and number theory, (cf. [15]). In this section, we define -Genocchi zeta and -functions, which are interpolated -Genocchi polynomials and generalized -Genocchi numbers at negative integers. By applying the Mellin transformation to (2.3), we obtain

Thus, Hurwitz-type -Genocchi zeta function is defined by the following definition.

By comparing both sides of the above equation and Theorem 3.6, we obtain distributions relation of the generalized Genocchi numbers as follows.
