The generalization of Faulhaber’s formula to sums of non-integral powers. (English) Zbl 1176.11004

Authors’ summary: “A formula for the sum of any positive-integral power of the first \(N\) positive integers was published by Johann Faulhaber (1580–1635). In this paper, we generalize Faulhaber’s formula to non-integral complex powers with real part greater than \(-1\).”
