Basic properties are established and generating functions are obtained for the q -Apostol–Euler polynomials. We define q -alternating sums and obtain q -extensions of some formulas from Integral Transform. Spectr. Funct., 20, 377–391 (2009). We also deduce an explicit relationship between the q -Apostol–Euler polynomials and the q -Hurwitz–Lerch zeta-function.
