COMMENTS

Conjecture: the residues mod 30 of the numerator and the denominator/6 of Bernoulli(20(n-1) + 2) are equal. Conjecture: the only solutions to the above equation are {1, 7, 11, 13, 17, 19, 23 or 29}. Observation: the differences between these solutions are (6, 4, 2, 4, 2, 4, 6), a sequence with bilateral symmetry. Program checks all nonzero Bernoulli numbers except B(1), but if the above conjecture is true, then it needs check only every 20th Bernoulli Number starting with B(2).

FORMULA

This formula is conjectural, but the program verified it for each of the first 300 numbers in this sequence: to obtain k from the n of this sequence, k = 20(n-1) + 2.

EXAMPLE

13 is in this sequence because both the numerator and the denominator/6 of a Bernoulli Number are congruent to 13 mod 30. Using my conjectural formula, you can find which Bernoulli Number: 13 is the 18th number in this sequence. k = 20(18-1) + 2. k = 342. So, both the numerator and the denominator/6 of Bernoulli(342) are congruent to 13 mod 30.

PROG

(Maxima) k:-2$ for n:1 thru 300 step 0 do (k:k+2, b:bern(k), f:mod(num(b), 30), a:mod(denom(b)/6, 30), if f=a then (print(n, ", ", a), if 20*(n-1)+2#k then (print("Exception at k=", k, " n=", n), n:4000), n:n+1))$
