Some polynomials are defined inside an expression, e.g. inside an series with infinite coefficients:

Bernoulli polynomial



The Bernoulli polynomials (Bi) are used in some formulae that relate a series and a integral. Some slowly converging series can be written as an (easy to solve) integral.

Euler polynomial



The Euler polynomials (Ei) are used to clarify phenomena of some alternating series 1).
