We introduce three one-parameter semigroups of operators and determine their spectra. Two of them are fractional integrals associated with the Askey-Wilson operator. We also study these families as families of positive linear approximation operators. Applications include connection relations and bilinear formulas for the Askey-Wilson polynomials. We also introduce a q-Gauss-Weierstrass transform and prove a representation and inversion theorem for it.
