Abstract
In some recent investigations involving certain differential operators for a general family of Lagrange polynomials, Chan et al. encountered and proved a certain summation identity for the Lagrange polynomials in several variables. In the present paper, we derive some generalizations of this summation identity for the Chan–Chyan–Srivastava polynomials in several variables. We also discuss a number of interesting corollaries and consequences of our main results.
