The real zeros of the Bernoulli polynomials. (English) Zbl 0692.41006
The author gives an empirical method for determining the exact number, $R\sb n$, of real zeros of $B\sb n(x)$ up to $n=200$. Up to $n=117$ the exact value is listed (table IV and table V). A general method is presented. The results are presented with a precision of approximately 17 decimal digits.
