Bernoulli polynomials $B_n$ are orthogonal polynomials defined by the formula $$B_n(x)=\displaystyle\sum_{k=0}^n {n \choose k} b_{n-k}x^k,$$ where $b_k$ are Bernoulli numbers.

$$B_0(x)=1$$ $$B_1(x)=x-\dfrac{1}{2}$$ $$B_2(x)=x^2-x+\dfrac{1}{6}$$ $$B_3(x)=x^3-\dfrac{3x^2}{2}+\dfrac{x}{2}$$ $$B_4(x)=x^4-2x^3+x^2-\dfrac{1}{30}$$
