UNIVERSAL BERNOULLI POLYNOMIALS AND P-ADIC CONGRUENCES
 

Summary: UNIVERSAL BERNOULLI POLYNOMIALS AND P-ADIC
CONGRUENCES
ABSTRACT. We de ne universal arbitrary order Bernoulli polynomials which
generalize the classical ones. We determine the succession of p-adic poles of
their coe∆cients, and generalize our previous results as well as results of Car-
litz and Kummer for positive integer order Bernoulli numbers and values of
ordinary Bernoulli polynomials respectively.
