\(q\)-Volkenborn integration. (English) Zbl 1092.11045

Summary: The “complete sum for \(q\)-Bernoulli polynomials” is evaluated by using the \(q\)-Volkenborn integral. This sum helps us to treat the relationships between \(q\)-Volkenborn integral and non-Archimedean combinatorial analysis. Also \(q\)-analogs of Stirling number identities are formulated, and the interconsistency among the \(q\)-analogs of the Stirling numbers and of the Bernoulli numbers is investigated; \(p\)-adic valued \(q\)-Bernoulli distributions and related probability properties of Bernoulli measures are studied in connection with a stochastic biological model.
