|Title:||Parity in Partition Identities: Lecture 1 (of 5 lectures)|
|Speaker:||George Andrews, Department of Mathematics, Penn State|
|ABSTRACT: The parity of parts in partitions has been of significance in
classical partition identities such as Euler's theorem and the
Goellnitz-Gordon identities. In this series of five lectures we examine
several the Rogers-Ramanujan and Gordon identities by looking at the
parity of parts.
LECTURE 1: "Background and Upper Parity Index." This will provide a new
interpretation of the Rogers-Ramanujan identities and new results for the
fifth order mock theta functions.|
