Title:Partition Analysis and Non-Squashing Stacks of Boxes
Seminar:Combinatorics/Partitions Seminar
Speaker:Dr. James Sellers, Penn State
Abstract:
I will discuss the results of a paper co-authored with George Andrews in 2007 in which a generating function was developed for m-non-squashing stacks of boxes. I will discuss the details of our proof, which relies on partition analysis, and I will also outline later proofs by others which are more elementary and do not utilize partition analysis. I will close by discussing numerous congruence properties satisfied by this enumerating function (I just can't resist!).
