Title:Orthogonal polynomials, mock theta functions and q-identities, part II
Seminar:Combinatorics/Partitions Seminar
Speaker:Dr. George Andrews, Penn State
Abstract:
Near the end of my paper "Parity in Partitions Identities," I provided a q-series expansion that contained the Rogers-Ramanujan identities and a fifth order mock theta function expansion as special cases. This talk will be devoted to an alternative proof of this result from the point of view of orthogonal polynomials. The talk will be self-contained and will develop all the necessary concepts of orthogonal polynomials from scratch.
