Title:New Proofs of Identities of Lebesgue and Gollnitz via Tilings
Seminar:Combinatorics/Partitions Seminar
Speaker:Dr. David Little
Abstract:
The Lebesgue identities have been proven in numerous ways. All of the known combinatorial proofs are bijections between different collections of integer partitions. Our goal is to provide a new, novel combinatorial proof by demonstrating how both sides of the Lebesgue identities enumerate the same collection of weighted Pell tilings. In the process, we also provide a new proof of the Gollnitz identities.
