# Sums of Powers of Positive Integers

On the symmetry of the resulting polynomials
by Christopher Yeleighton (posted 5/1/11)

== Conjecture == It would be interesting to know that * sums of odd powers can be factored as a polynomial on (n Ã¢â€¹â€¦ (n + 1) / 2) and is therefore symmetric with the center at (Ã¢Ë†â€™Ã‚Â½); and that * sums of even powers can be factored to a function like above multiplied by (2 Ã¢â€¹â€¦ n + 1) and therefore antisymmetric with the center at (Ã¢Ë†â€™Ã‚Â½). It would be interesting to know whether any rule concerning the polynomials thus obtained.
