The conjugate Euler polynomials are defined by the application of the Hilbert transform to the (periodic) Euler polynomials . In the paper under review an analogue of the Boole summation formula is proved, where the Euler polynomials are replaced by the conjugate ones. As an application, partial fraction expansions are given from which an Euler–type formula follows, namely
for , analogue to the case of an odd exponent . But in contrast to the odd case , it remains as an open question whether the factor of is rational or not.
