On a two-variable \(p\)-adic \(l_{q}\)-function. (English) Zbl 1149.11011

The authors introduce the \(q\)-Euler polynomials \({E}_{n,{q}}^{\ast}(t)\) defined by
\[ \frac{[2]_q}{qe^x+1}e^{xt}=\sum_{n=0}^{\infty}{E}_{n,{q}}^{\ast}(t) \frac{x^n}{n!}. \]
The \(q\)-Euler numbers are \({E}_{n,{q}}^{\ast}:={E}_{n,{q}}^{\ast}(0)\). They also introduce the generalized \(q\)-Euler polynomials \({E}_{n,\chi,q}^{\ast}(t)\) are defined by
\[ \frac{[2]_q\sum_{a=1}^{d}(-1)^aq^a\chi(a)e^{(t+a)x}}{qe^x+1}e^{xt}= \sum_{n=0}^{\infty}{E}_{n,\chi,q}^{\ast}(t)\frac{x^n}{n!}. \]
By using the \(p\)-adic \(q\)-integral they obtain some formulas, e.g.,
\[ \sum_{a=1}^{dn}(-1)^aq^a\chi(a)(t+a)^m= \frac{{E}_{n,\chi,q}^{\ast}(t)+(-1)^{n+1}q^{dn}{E}_{n,\chi,q}^{\ast}(t+dn)}{[2]_q} \]
is a \(q\)-analogue of the classical result
\[ \sum_{k=1}^{m}(-1)^kk^n=\frac{{E}_{n}(0)+(-1)^{m}{E}_n(n+1)}{2}. \]
Furthermore, they also define a two-variable \(p\)-adic \({l}_{q}\)-function by the series expansion:
\[ {l}_{p,q}(s,t,\chi )=\frac{{[2]}_{q}}{{[2]}_{F}}\sum_{\substack{ a=1\\ (p,a)=1}}^{F}{(-1)}^{a}(\chi (a){q}^{a}/{\langle a+pt\rangle }^{s}){\sum }_{m=0}^{\infty }\binom{-s}{m} {(F/\langle a+pt\rangle )}^{m}{E}_{m,{q}^{F}}^{\ast}, \]
where \(\chi\) is the Dirichlet character with conductor \(d=d_{\chi}\) (= odd), \(F\) is a positive integral multiple of \(p\) and \(d\). Then they obtain the following relation
\[ {l}_{p,q}(-n,t,\chi )={E}_{n,{\chi }_{n},q}^{\ast}(pt)-{p}^{n}{\chi }_{n}(p)({[2]}_{q}/{[2]}_{{q}^{p}}){E}_{n,{\chi }_{n},{q}^{p}}^{\ast}(t), \]
where \(n\) is a nonpositive integer. The proof of this original construction is due to Kubota and Leopoldt in 1964, the method in this paper is due to Washington.
