In mathematics, the Peters polynomials \( s_n(x) \) are polynomials studied by Peters (1956, 1956b) given by the generating function

\( \displaystyle \sum s_n(x)t^n/n! = \frac{(1+t)^x}{(1+(1+t)^\lambda)^{-\mu}} \)

(Roman 1984, 4.4.6), (Boas & Buck 1958, p.37). They are a generalization of the Boole polynomials.
