We recall two formulas, due to C. Jordan, for the
successive derivatives of functions with an exponential or logarithmic
inner function. We apply them to get addition formulas for the Stirling
numbers of the second kind and for the Stirling numbers of the first
kind. Then we show how one can obtain, in a simple way, explicit
formulas for the generalized Euler polynomials, generalized Euler
numbers, generalized Bernoulli polynomials and the Bell polynomials.
