\(q\)-Bernoulli numbers and polynomials associated with Gaussian binomial coefficients. (English) Zbl 1196.11040

Summary: A purpose of this paper is to present a systemic study of some families of multiple \(q\)-Bernoulli numbers and polynomials by using the multivariate \(q\)-Volkenborn integral (= \(p\)-adic \(q\)-integral) on \(\mathbb Z_p\) . Moreover, the study of these higher-order \(q\)-Bernoulli numbers and polynomials implies some interesting \(q\)-analogs of Stirling number identities.
