Abstract

The modified Bernoulli numbers \begin{equation*} B_{n}^{*} = \sum_{r=0}^{n} \binom{n+r}{2r} \frac{B_{r}}{n+r}, \quad n > 0, \end{equation*} introduced by D. Zagier in \(1998\) were recently extended to the polynomial case by replacing \(B_{r}\) by the Bernoulli polynomials \(B_{r}(x)\). Arithmetic properties of the coefficients of these polynomials are established. In particular, the \(2\)-adic valuation of the modified Bernoulli numbers is determined. A variety of analytic, umbral, and asymptotic methods is used to analyze these polynomials.
