### The relation of the Bernoulli numbers to the Catalan numbers

The Bernoulli numbers $B_n$ are the backbone of calculus, and according to B. Mazur, they "act as a unifying force, holding together seemingly disparate fields of mathematics." The Catalan ...

### Bounds on the difference between the polylogarithm with negative base and the gamma function

Trying to understand intuitively the Gamma function I started to think of it as a way to measure how much each factorial power "helps" $x^n$ in the infinite sum of $e^x$, thus trying to ...

### Connection between Eulerian numbers and number of elements in set of uniform variables greater than the mean?

I was recently investigating the following question: Given $n$ independent $\text{Unif(0, 1)}$ variables $U_1,\ldots,U_n$, let $m$ be the number of elements in $[U_1,\ldots,U_n]$ that are greater than ...

### The second-order Eulerian numbers meet the Clausen numbers

The (generalized) Clausen numbers A160014 are defined as $$\operatorname{C}_{n, k} = \prod_{ p\, -\, k\, |\, n} p \quad (p \in \mathbb{P})$$ where $\mathbb{P}$ denotes the primes. The classical ...
