1. Introduction

Let be a fixed odd prime number. Throughout this paper, symbols , , , and will denote the ring of rational integers, the ring of -adic integers, the field of -adic rational numbers, and the completion of algebraic closure of , respectively. Let be the set of natural numbers and . Let be the normalized exponential valuation of with . When one talks of -extension, is variously considered as an indeterminate, a complex number or a -adic number . If one normally assumes If then one normally assumes We use the following notations:


for all (see [16]).

Let a fixed positive odd integer with . For , we set

We say that is a uniformly differentiable function at a point and write , if the difference quotients have a limit as . For , let us begin with expression


which represents a -analogue of Riemann sums for in the fermionic sense (see [4, 5]). The integral of on is defined by the limit of these sums (as ) if this limit exists. The fermionic invariant -adic -integral of function is defined as


Note that if in , then


The Barnes' type Euler polynomials are considered as follows:

The purpose of this paper is to construct the -Euler numbers and polynomials of higher order, which are related to Barnes' type multiple Euler numbers and polynomials. Also, we give many properties and formulae for our -Euler polynomials of higher order. Finally, we give the generating function for these -Euler polynomials of higher order.

In the special case , are called the Barnes' type multiple -Euler numbers. From (2.1), one has


Therefore, we obtain the following theorem.

Theorem 2.1.

Theorem 2.3.

For the special case in Theorem 2.3, one has


By (2.1), (2.3), and (2.9), we obtain the following corollary.

Corollary 2.4.

From (2.3), we note that

Remark 2.6.

From (2.4), we can easily derive the following equation:
By differentiating both sides of (2.16) with respect to and comparing coefficients on both sides, one has
The inversion formula of Equation (2.4) at is given by
Thus, one has
