#### Abstract

We investigate some formulae for the product of two Bernoulli and Euler polynomials arising from the Euler and Bernoulli basis polynomials.

#### 1. Introduction

As is well known, the Bernoulli polynomials are defined by the generating function as follows: (see [1–21]), with the usual convention about replacing by . In the special case, , are called the th Bernoulli numbers. The Euler polynomials are also defined by the generating function as follows: (see [6–11]), with the usual convention about replacing by . In the special case, , are called the th Euler numbers. From (1.1) and (1.2), we can derive the following recurrence relations for the Bernoulli and Euler numbers: where is the Kronecker symbol. By (1.1) and (1.2), we get From (1.4), we can derive By (1.4) and (1.5), we get It is easy to show that Thus, we have (see [11–18]). By the definition of the Euler polynomials, we get From (1.9), we have (see [1–18]). By (1.8) and (1.10), we see that the set and are the basis for the space of polynomials of degree less than or equal to with coefficients in (see [1–21]).
