## Abstract

We present a new generating function related to the -Bernoulli numbers and -Bernoulli polynomials. We give a new construction of these numbers and polynomials related to the second-kind Stirling numbers and -Bernstein polynomials. We also consider the generalized -Bernoulli polynomials attached to Dirichlet's character and have their generating function . We obtain distribution relations for the -Bernoulli polynomials and have some identities involving -Bernoulli numbers and polynomials related to the second kind Stirling numbers and -Bernstein polynomials. Finally, we derive the -extensions of zeta functions from the Mellin transformation of this generating function which interpolates the -Bernoulli polynomials at negative integers and is associated with -Bernstein polynomials.

## 1. Introduction, Definitions, and Notations

Let be the complex number field. We assume that with and that the -number is defined by in this paper.

Many mathematicians have studied -Bernoulli, -Euler polynomials, and related topics (see [1–23]). It is known that the Bernoulli polynomials are defined by

and that are called the th Bernoulli numbers.

The recurrence formula for the classical Bernoulli numbers is as follows,

(see [1, 3, 23]). The -extension of the following recurrence formula for the Bernoulli numbers is

with the usual convention of replacing by (see [5, 7, 14]).

Now, by introducing the following well-known identities

(see [6]).

The generating functions of the second kind Stirling numbers and -Bernstein polynomials, respectively, can be defined as follows,

Throughout this paper, , , , , and will respectively denote the ring of rational integers, the field of rational numbers, the ring -adic rational integers, the field of -adic rational numbers, and the completion of the algebraic closure of . Let be the normalized exponential valuation of such that . If , we normally assume or so that for (see [7–19]).

In this study, we present a new generating function related to the -Bernoulli numbers and -Bernoulli polynomials and give a new construction of these numbers and polynomials related to the second kind Stirling numbers and -Bernstein polynomials. We also consider the generalized -Bernoulli polynomials attached to Dirichlet's character and have their generating function. We obtain distribution relations for the -Bernoulli polynomials and have some identities involving -Bernoulli numbers and polynomials related to the second kind Stirling numbers and -Bernstein polynomials. Finally, we derive the -extensions of zeta functions from the Mellin transformation of this generating function which interpolates the -Bernoulli polynomials at negative integers and are associated with -Bernstein polynomials.
