Title:Asymptotic formulas for partitions into distinct k-th powers
Seminar:Combinatorics/Partitions Seminar
Speaker:Heiko Todt, Department of Mathematics, The Pennsylvania State University
I will present an extension of a theorem by Meinardus and how it can be applied to find an asymptotic formula for partitions into distinct k-th powers. The circle method can also be directly applied using a transformation formula by E.M. Wright and it leads to a different asymptotic term. I will compare these two methods and show which one gives better results.
