Abstract
In this paper, we study some properties of the generalized Apostoltype polynomials (see (Luo and Srivastava in Appl. Math. Comput. 217:57025728, 2011)), including the recurrence relations, the differential equations and some other connected problems, which extend some known results. We also deduce some properties of the generalized ApostolEuler polynomials, the generalized ApostolBernoulli polynomials, and ApostolGenocchi polynomials of high order.

The classical Bernoulli polynomials , the classical Euler polynomials and the classical Genocchi polynomials , together with their familiar generalizations , and of (real or complex) order α, are usually defined by means of the following generating functions (see, for details, [1], pp.532533 and [2], p.61 et seq.; see also [3] and the references cited therein):

respectively.
Some interesting analogues of the classical Bernoulli polynomials and numbers were first investigated by Apostol (see [4], p.165, Eq. (3.1)) and (more recently) by Srivastava (see [5], pp.8384). We begin by recalling here Apostol’s definitions as follows.
Definition 1.1 (Apostol [4]; see also Srivastava [5])
The ApostolBernoulli polynomials () are defined by means of the following generating function:

Recently, Luo and Srivastava [6] further extended the ApostolBernoulli polynomials as the socalled ApostolBernoulli polynomials of order α.
Definition 1.2 (Luo and Srivastava [6])
The ApostolBernoulli polynomials () of order are defined by means of the following generating function:

On the other hand, Luo [7], gave an analogous extension of the generalized Euler polynomials as the socalled ApostolEuler polynomials of order α.
Definition 1.3 (Luo [7])
The ApostolEuler polynomials () of order are defined by means of the following generating function:
with, of course,

On the subject of the Genocchi polynomials and their various extensions, a remarkably large number of investigations have appeared in the literature (see, for example, [814]). Moreover, Luo (see [1214]) introduced and investigated the ApostolGenocchi polynomials of (real or complex) order α, which are defined as follows:
Definition 1.4 The ApostolGenocchi polynomials () of order are defined by means of the following generating function:
with, of course,
where , and denote the socalled ApostolGenocchi numbers, the ApostolGenocchi numbers of order α and the ApostolGenocchi polynomials, respectively.
Recently, Luo and Srivastava [15] introduced a unification (and generalization) of the abovementioned three families of the generalized Apostol type polynomials.
Definition 1.5 (Luo and Srivastava [15])
The generalized Apostol type polynomials (, ) of order α are defined by means of the following generating function:
where

In recent years, several authors obtained many interesting results involving the related Bernoulli polynomials and Euler polynomials [5,2040]. And in [29], the authors studied some series identities involving the generalized Apostol type and related polynomials.
In this paper, we study some other properties of the generalized Apostol type polynomials , including the recurrence relations, the differential equations and some connection problems, which extend some known results. As special, we obtain some properties of the generalized ApostolEuler polynomials, the generalized ApostolBernoulli polynomials and ApostolGenocchi polynomials of high order.
