1. Introduction and Preliminaries

Let be a fixed prime number. Throughout this paper, , , and will denote the ring of -adic integers, the field of -adic rational numbers, and the completion of the algebraic closure of , respectively. Let be the set of natural numbers, and let . Let be the normalized exponential valuation of with . Let be regarded as either a complex number or a -adic number . If , then we always assume . If , we assume that . In this paper, we define the -number as (see [113]).

Let be the set of continuous functions on . For and , the weighted -Bernstein operator of order for is defined by

Here is called the weighted -Bernstein polynomials of degree (see [2, 5, 6]).

Let be the space of uniformly differentiable functions on . For , the -adic -integral on , which is called the bosonic -integral on , is defined by

(see [10]).

The Carlitz's -Bernoulli numbers are defined by
with the usual convention about replacing by (see [3, 9, 10]). In [3], Carlitz also defined the expansion of Carlitz's -Bernoulli numbers as follows:

Then by (1.2), applying to the function , we can see that
The weighted -Bernoulli polynomials are also defined by the generating function as follows:

From (1.2) and the previous equalities, we obtain the Witt's formula for the weighted -Bernoulli polynomials as follows:
By using (1.2) and the weighted -Bernoulli polynomials, we easily get

In this paper, we consider the weighted -Bernstein polynomials to express the bosonic -integral on and investigate some properties of the weighted -Bernstein polynomials associated with the weighted -Bernoulli polynomials by using the expression of -adic -integral on of those polynomials.
