FORMULA

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

EXAMPLE

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

1;

-(1/2)*x;

(1/12)*(3*x-1)*x;

-(1/8)*(x-1)*x^2;

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

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

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

MAPLE

B:=bernoulli; b:=proc(s) option remember; local t; global r; if s=0 then RETURN(1); fi; expand((-r/s)*add( (-1)^t*binomial(s, t)*B(t)*b(s-t), t=1..s)); end; [seq(denom(b(n)), n=0..30)];
