Title:Orthogonal polynomials, mock theta functions and q-identities, Part III
Seminar:Combinatorics/Partitions Seminar
Speaker:Dr. George Andrews, Penn State
Abstract:
In my first two talks on this topic I dealt with a new proof of a theorem near the end of my paper "Parity in Partition Identities." The theorem provided a q-series expansion that contained the Rogers-Ramanujan identities and a fifth order mock theta function expansion as special cases. The original focus was on the little q-Jacobi polynomial. This talk will be devoted to new results utilizing other q-orthogonal polynomials. Among other things we shall consider partitions in which only "middle" parts might repeat.
