A note on the higher derivatives of the function $$1/(\exp(x)-1)$$. (English) Zbl 1357.26008
Summary: In this brief note, we compare two formulas for the higher order derivatives of the function $$1/(\exp(x)-1)$$. We also provide an integral representation for these derivatives and obtain a classical formula relating zeta values and Bernoulli numbers.
