Abstract: The paper deals with a number of generalizations of an identity first introduced by Brock, and subsequently investigated in some detail by Carlitz. The theorem presented in this paper not only extends the formulas of Carlitz, but also shows that a multi-dimensional function satisfies the identity. A result is also deduced regarding the positive nature of the recurrence relation.
