%F These Bernoulli polynomials B(s) = B(s)(x) are defined by: B(0) = 1; B(s) = (-x/s)*Sum( (-1)^t*binomial(s, t)*Bernoulli(t)*B(s-t), t=1..s)), where Bernoulli(t) are the usual Bernoulli numbers A027641/A027642. Also B(s)(1) = Bernoulli(s).

%e The Bernoulli polynomials B(0)(x) through B(6)(x) are:

%e 1

%e -(1/2)*x

%e (1/12)*(3*x-1)*x

%e -(1/8)*(x-1)*x^2

%e (1/240)*(15*x^3-30*x^2+5*x+2)*x

%e -(1/96)*(x-1)*(3*x^2-7*x-2)*x^2

%e (1/4032)*(63*x^5-315*x^4+315*x^3+91*x^2-42*x-16)*x
