Faulhaber’s formula expresses sums of powers of consecutive integers in terms of Bernoulli polynomials. Here we would like to find analogous ones to the Faulhaber’s formula for poly-Bernoulli and type 2 poly-Bernoulli polynomials.

Keywords: Analogues of Faulhaber’s formula, Poly-Bernoulli polynomials, Type 2 poly-Bernoulli polynomials
