Title: | Two problems in partitions |

Seminar: | Combinatorics/Partitions Seminar |

Speaker: | George Andrews, PSU |

Abstract: |

The talk will consider to different questions. (1) (joint work with Beck and Robbins) What is the nature of the generating function for partitions in which the difference between largest and smallest parts is fixed? (2) (joint work with Simay) Find a formula for g_m(n,k), the number of partitions of n in which k is the m-th largest summand (i.e there are exactly m-1 distinct parts (each of which may be repeated arbitrarily) that are larger than k). |
