Bernoulli Polynomials

1) The Bernoulli Polynomials can be defined as:
for n>0

2) The Bernoulli Numbers are defined as

3) Consider the generating function for these polynomials:

To derive an expression for G(x,t) consider

Hence for some function A(t)
Now consider
But also

Now the generating function is exceptionally powerful and will be used to derive all the other properties of the Bernoulli Polynomials found ...
