Arithmetic properties of the Nšorlund polynomial B (x)
n
Arnold Adelberg
Dedicated to H. W. Gould on the occasion of his 70th birthday.
Abstract
For any prime p we establish a congruence of Kummer type for the Nšorlund polynomial
B (x)
n , and determine the highest power of p which divides the coefficient denominators of
the Nšorlund polynomial. This improves the result of [4] where only an upper bound was
proven. We deduce a simple formula for the least common denominator of the coefficients.
Applications are made for the Stirling polynomials.
Keywords Nšorlund polynomials, Bernoulli numbers and polynomials, Stirling polynomi­
als, Kummer congruences.
1. Introduction
We are pleased to contribute to this volume dedicated to H. W. Gould, whose collection
of binomial identities [6] led us into the field of Bernoulli and related polynomials [2].
