This paper is devoted to the study of eigen-sequences for some
important operators acting on sequences. Using functional equations
involving generating functions, we completely solve the problem of
characterizing the fixed sequences for the Generalized Binomial operator.
We give some applications to integer sequences. In particular we show
how we can generate fixed sequences for Generalized Binomial and their
relation with the Worpitzky transform. We illustrate this fact with
some interesting examples and identities, related to Fibonacci,
Catalan, Motzkin and Euler numbers. Finally we find the eigen-sequences
for the mutual compositions of the operators Interpolated Invert,
Generalized Binomial and Revert.
