1. Introduction

Recently, many mathematicians have studied the area of the Stirling numbers, the Euler numbers and polynomials (see [1] - [11] ). We studied some properties of the polynomials and numbers in com- plex field (see [12] ). In this paper, based on the Euler numbers and polynomials, we define the numbers and polynomials by using the p-adic integrals on in p-adic field. Then, we get some interesting properties and relations of the Stirling numbers, the, and the Bell numbers. It is interesting that the Euler polynomials and to be define in this paper have a different structure (see [Figure 2]). Zeros of are a symmetric structure but zeros of are not.

Throughout this paper, we use the following notations. By, we denote the ring of p-adic rational integers, denotes the field of p-adic rational numbers, denotes the completion of algebraic closure of, denotes the set of natural numbers, denotes the ring of rational integers, Q denotes the field of rational

numbers, denotes the set of complex numbers, and and denote the binomial coefficient. Let be the normalized exponential valuation of with.

For

the fermionic p-adic integral on is defined by T. Kim as below:

(cf. [5] ). (1.1)

If we take in (1.1), then we easily see that

(1.2)

From (1.2), we obtain

(1.3)

where (cf. [5] - [10] ).

The classical Euler polynomials are defined by the following generating function

(1.4)

with the usual convention of replacing by. In generally, the original Euler numbers are when

and normalizing by gives the Euler number as following:

But in this paper, Euler numbers are when. In other words, and in this paper, Euler numbers mean the Euler numbers having a generating function as below(cf. [5] - [10] ):

(1.5)

The Stirling number of the second kind is the number of partitions of n things into r non-empty sets; it is positive if and zero for other values of r (see [1] ). It satisfies the recurrence relation

The generating function of the Stirling numbers is defined as below:

(1.6)

As well known definition, the Bell polynomials are defined by Bell (1934) as below

(1.7)

Also, let be denote the Stirling numbers of the second kind. Then

(1.8)

In the special case, are called the n-th Bell numbers.

The motivation of this paper is the Euler numbers and Bell numbers’s generating function. From this idea, we induce some interesting properties related to the Stirling numbers, the Bell numbers, the Euler numbers and the.

Our aim in this paper is to define analogue Euler numbers and polynomials. We investigate some properties which are related to,. Especially, we derive the relations of the Stirling numbers and the, the.

2. An Introduction to Numbers and Polynomials

Our primary goal of this section is to define numbers and polynomials. We also find the witt’s formula for numbers and polynomials by (1.2).

By (1.2) and using p-adic integral on, we get as below:

From (2.6) and

Hence, we get the following;

By means of numerical experiments, we demonstrate a remarkably regular structure of the complex roots of the Euler polynomials (see [12] ). The theoretical prediction on the zeros of is await for further study. These figures give mathematicians an unbounded capacity to create visual mathematical investigations of the behavior of the roots of the.
