On the asymptotic normality of the Legendre-Stirling numbers of the second kind  [PDF]
Wolfgang Gawronski,Lance L. Littlejohn,Thorsten Neuschel
Mathematics , 2014,
Abstract: For the Legendre-Stirling numbers of the second kind asymptotic formulae are derived in terms of a local central limit theorem. Thereby, supplements of the recently published asymptotic analysis of the Chebyshev-Stirling numbers are established. Moreover, we provide results on the asymptotic normality and unimodality for modified Legendre-Stirling numbers.
Generalized Stirling Numbers and Generalized Stirling Functions  [PDF]
Tian-Xiao He
Mathematics , 2011,
Abstract: Here presented is a unified approach to Stirling numbers and their generalizations as well as generalized Stirling functions by using generalized factorial functions, $k$-Gamma functions, and generalized divided difference. Previous well-known extensions of Stirling numbers due to Riordan, Carlitz, Howard, Charalambides-Koutras, Gould-Hopper, Hsu-Shiue, Tsylova Todorov, Ahuja-Enneking, and Stirling functions introduced by Butzer and Hauss, Butzer, Kilbas, and Trujilloet and others are included as particular cases of our generalization. Some basic properties related to our general pattern such as their recursive relations and generating functions are discussed. Three algorithms for calculating the Stirling numbers based on our generalization are also given, which include a comprehensive algorithm using the characterization of Riordan arrays.

A Newton Interpolation Approach to Generalized Stirling Numbers
Aimin Xu
Journal of Applied Mathematics , 2012, DOI: 10.1155/2012/351935
Abstract: We employ the generalized factorials to define a Stirling-type pair {(,;,,),(,;,,)} which unifies various Stirling-type numbers investigated by previous authors. We make use of the Newton interpolation and divided differences to obtain some basic properties of the generalized Stirling numbers including the recurrence relation, explicit expression, and generating function. The generalizations of the well-known Dobinski's formula are further investigated.
Generalized q-Stirling Numbers and Their Interpolation Functions  [PDF]
Hacer Ozden,Ismail Naci Cangul,Yilmaz Simsek
Axioms , 2013, DOI: 10.3390/axioms2010010
Abstract: In this paper, we define the generating functions for the generalized q-Stirling numbers of the second kind. By applying Mellin transform to these functions, we construct interpolation functions of these numbers at negative integers. We also derive some identities and relations related to q-Bernoulli numbers and polynomials and q-Stirling numbers of the second kind.
Touchard like polynomials and generalized Stirling numbers  [PDF]
G. Dattoli,B. Germano,M. R. Martinelli,P. E. Ricci
Mathematics , 2010,
Abstract: The theory of Touchard polynomials is generalized using a method based on the definition of exponential operators, which extend the notion of the shift operator. The proposed technique, along with the use of the relevant operational formalism, allows the straightforward derivation of properties of this family of polynomials and their relationship to different forms of Stirling numbers.
A Family of Generalized Stirling Numbers of the First Kind  [PDF]
Beih S. El-Desouky, Nabela A. El-Bedwehy, Abdelfattah Mustafa, Fatma M. Abdel Menem
Applied Mathematics (AM) , 2014, DOI: 10.4236/am.2014.510150
Abstract: A modified approach via differential operator is given to derive a new family of generalized Stirling numbers of the first kind. This approach gives us an extension of the techniques given by El-Desouky [1] and Gould [2]. Some new combinatorial identities and many relations between different types of Stirling numbers are found. Furthermore, some interesting special cases of the generalized Stirling numbers of the first kind are deduced. Also, a connection between these numbers and the generalized harmonic numbers is derived. Finally, some applications in coherent states and matrix representation of some results obtained are given.
Combinatorially interpreting generalized Stirling numbers  [PDF]
John Engbers,David Galvin,Justin Hilyard
Computer Science , 2013,
Abstract: Let $w$ be a word in alphabet $\{x,D\}$ with $m$ $x$'s and $n$ $D$'s. Interpreting "$x$" as multiplication by $x$, and "$D$" as differentiation with respect to $x$, the identity $wf(x) = x^{m-n}\sum_k S_w(k) x^k D^k f(x)$, valid for any smooth function $f(x)$, defines a sequence $(S_w(k))_k$, the terms of which we refer to as the {\em Stirling numbers (of the second kind)} of $w$. The nomenclature comes from the fact that when $w=(xD)^n$, we have $S_w(k)={n \brace k}$, the ordinary Stirling number of the second kind. Explicit expressions for, and identities satisfied by, the $S_w(k)$ have been obtained by numerous authors, and combinatorial interpretations have been presented. Here we provide a new combinatorial interpretation that retains the spirit of the familiar interpretation of ${n \brace k}$ as a count of partitions. Specifically, we associate to each $w$ a quasi-threshold graph $G_w$, and we show that $S_w(k)$ enumerates partitions of the vertex set of $G_w$ into classes that do not span an edge of $G_w$. We also discuss some relatives of, and consequences of, our interpretation, including $q$-analogs and bijections between families of labelled forests and sets of restricted partitions.

Abstract: Several combinatorial identities are presented, involving Stirling functions of the second kind with a complex variable. The identities involve also Stirling numbers of the first kind, binomial coefficients and harmonic numbers.
Fibonacci polynomials, generalized Stirling numbers, and Bernoulli, Genocchi and tangent numbers  [PDF]
Johann Cigler
Mathematics , 2011,
Abstract: We study matrices which transform the sequence of Fibonacci or Lucas polynomials with even index to those with odd index and vice versa. They turn out to be intimately related to generalized Stirling numbers and to Bernoulli, Genocchi and tangent numbers and give rise to various identities between these numbers. There is also a close connection with the Akiyama-Tanigawa algorithm.
