In this paper, we present a systemic study of some families of multiple Carlitz's type -Bernoulli numbers and polynomials by using the integral equations of -adic -integrals on . First, we derive some interesting equations of -adic -integrals on . From these equations, we give some interesting formulae for the higher-order Carlitz's type -Bernoulli numbers and polynomials in the -adic number field.
