q-Generalized Euler numbers and polynomials



Recently, B. A. Kupershmidt constructed reflection symmetries of q-Bernoulli polynomials (see [12]). In this paper, we study new q-extensions of Euler numbers and polynomials by using the method of Kupershmidt. We also investigate the properties of symmetries of these q-Euler polynomials by using q-derivatives and q-integrals.
