Title:Parity in Partition Identities: Lecture 1 (of 5 lectures)
Seminar:Combinatorics/Partitions Seminar
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.
