### A conjecture on p-divisibility of Bernoulli numbers

Is anyone aware of the history of the following conjecture on the $p$-divisibility of (the numerators) of Bernoulli numbers?
CONJECTURE: For $p$ an odd prime, and $k$ even with $2 \leq k \leq p-3$, $...

### For a given even integer $k >14$ is there always a prime $p$ such that $k \leq p-3$ and $p|B_k$?

Let $k$ be a sufficiently large positive even integer. (I think $k > 14$ should do.) Can one always find a prime $p$ such that $p$ divides the numerator of the $k$-th Bernoulli number $B_k$ and $k \...

### divisibility by Bernoulli numbers of discriminant of Hecke algebra over the space of modular forms of level 1

For the space of modular forms and the space of cusp forms (here I only care about the level $1$ case), we have the action by Hecke algebras. Therefore, we can calculate the discriminant of this ...

### How naturally can functions defined by parametric integrals be interpolated from $\mathbb N$ to $\mathbb R^+$?

It is well known that several definite integrals $I_n$ containing a parameter $n\in\mathbb N$ can be expressed recursively (e.g. doing integration by parts) in terms of $I_{n-1} $ or $I_{n-2} $, and ...

### What is $p$-adic Fourier series?

Q1: Can we define Fourier series for a function $\mathbb{Z}_p\to \mathbb{Q}_p$?
Q2: There are (in a real case) Bernoulli polynomials which have the most simple Fourier expansion:
$$B_n(\{x\})=-\frac{...
