Unified Bernstein and Bleimann-Butzer-Hahn basis and its properties
Advances in Difference Equations volume 2013, Article number: 55 (2013)
In this paper we introduce the unification of Bernstein and Bleimann-Butzer-Hahn basis via the generating function. We give the representation of this unified family in terms of Apostol-type polynomials and Stirling numbers of the second kind. More generating functions of trigonometric type are also obtained to this unification.

In this paper, we introduce a two-parameter generating function, which generates not only the Bernstein basis polynomials, but also the Bleimann-Butzer-Hahn basis functions. The generating function that we propose is given by

Denoting by the space of real-valued bounded continuous functions defined on , they proved that as . On the other hand, the convergence is uniform on each compact subset of , where the norm is the usual supremum norm of . For the review of the results concerning the Bleimann-Butzer-Hahn operators obtained in the period 1980-2009, we refer to .
The following theorem gives the explicit representation of the basis family defined in (1). Note that throughout the paper, we let for .

Recently , the first author introduced the unification of the Apostol-Bernoulli, Euler and Genocchi polynomials by
For the convergence of the series in (3), we refer to [, p.2453].
Some of the well-known polynomials included by are listed below.
Remark 4 Having and in (3), we get
Note that are the generalized Apostol-Bernoulli polynomials defined through the following generating relation:
where α and λ are arbitrary real or complex parameters and . Note that when , the order α should be restricted to nonnegative integer values. These polynomials were introduced by Luo and Srivastava  and investigated in [16, 17] and . The Apostol-Bernoulli polynomials and numbers are obtained by the generalized Apostol-Bernoulli polynomials, respectively, as follows:
Taking in the above relations, we obtain the classical Bernoulli polynomials and Bernoulli numbers .
Remark 5 Letting and in (3), we get
Note that when , the order α should be restricted to nonnegative integer values. The Apostol-Genocchi polynomials and numbers are respectively given by

Although our results do not contain the Apostol-Euler polynomials, for the sake of completeness, we give their definitions as a special case of the polynomial family .
Remark 6 Setting and in (3), we get
Recall that the Apostol-Euler polynomials are generalized by Luo  and given by the generating relation

Now, recall that the Stirling numbers of the second kind are denoted by and defined by (see [, p.58 (15)])
The following theorem states an interesting explicit representation of the unified basis in terms of Apostol-type polynomials and relation between Stirling numbers of the second kind.

3 Generating functions of trigonometric type
In this section, we obtain a trigonometric generating relation for the unified Bernstein and Bleimann-Butzer-Hahn basis. Furthermore, we give a certain summation formula for this unification. We start with the following theorem.
Theorem 12 For the unified family, we have the following implicit summation formulae:

Finally, we obtain a summation formula for the unified Bernstein and Bleimann-Butzer-Hahn basis as follows.
Theorem 15 For all ; , the following implicit summation formula holds true:
Proof Letting in (1) and then using the fact that
Multiplying both sides by and then expanding the function , we get, after using (12) twice, that
Now, using (12) with the index pairs and , we get
Since the left-hand side is equal by (13) to
