Abstract
It is known that certain convolution sums can be expressed as a combination of divisor functions and Bernoulli formula. In this article, we consider relationship between fifth-order combinatoric convolution sums of divisor functions and Bernoulli polynomials. As applications of these identities, we give a concrete interpretation in terms of the procedural modeling method. AMS Mathematics Subject Classfication : 11B68, 11A05

1. Introduction
Throughout this paper, the symbols ℕ and ℤ denote the set of natural numbers and the ring of integers respectively. The classical Bernoulli polynomials Bn ( x ) is usually defined by means of the following generating function:

for the basic convolution sum first appeared in a letter from Besge to Liouville in 1862 (See [2] ). Recently, the study of convolution formulas for divisor functions can be found in B.C. Berndt [1] , J.W.L. Glaisher [3] , H. Hahn [4] , J.G. Huard et al. [5] , D. Kim et al. [8] , G. Melfi [12] and K.S. Williams [13] . We are motivated by Ramanujan’s recursion formula for sums of the product of two Eisenstein series (See [1] ) and its proof, and also the following identities (See [13] ):

3. The tree-modeling method
Th procedural modeling method using convolution sums of divisor functions (MCD) was suggested for a variety of natural trees in a virtual ecosystem [10] , [11] . Th basic structure of MCD is that it defines the growth grammar including the branch propagation, a growth pattern of branches and leaves, and a process of growth deformation for various generations of tree. Theorems 1.1 gives us a basic background for efficient and diverse generations and expressions of trees composing virtual ecosystem or real-time animation processing.
In order to apply MCD to the growth structure of a tree model, (1.3) is modified and expressed in

where D represents various divisor functions, i is the current growth step, and n - 1 is the final iteration number of the i th growth step. Here, Di ( Bi ( x, y ) a ) is a divisor function that determines the pattern of the number of branches, Di ( Ti ( x, y ) a ) is a divisor function that determines the number of twigs, and Di ( Li ( x, y ) a ) is a divisor function that determines the number of leaves with l different types of trees and grasses in the virtual system. We put Di = σ . Using Theorem 1.1, we obtain approximate total numbers for MCD. We suggest an example for

Consider the first sum of right hand side of (3.1)

This number represents the following : New twigs are grown in the first bough, and two leaves are grown in the new twigs(See Figure 2 ).

N = 3, q = 2:
Similarly, we consider the second sum of right hand side of (3.1)

Lager Image
This number represents the following : Two new boughs are grown in the main column, and one twig are grown each in the bough, and two leaves are grown each in the twig (See Figure 2 ).
Similarly, we obtain Figure 3 .
