Some truncated partition theorems

Ae Ja Yee (Penn State Math)

Abstract: The recent work of George Andrews and Mircea Merca on the truncated version of Euler's pentagonal number theorem has opened up a new study on truncated theta series. Since then several papers on the topic have followed. For instance, Victor Guo and Jiang Zeng investigated two theta series of Gauss and proved analogous results to the truncated theorem of Andrews and Merca. In this talk, I will discuss their results along with some new discoveries from my collaboration with Chun Wang.

Partitions with prescribed successive rank parity blocks

Ae Ja Yee (Penn State)

Abstract: Successive ranks of a partition, which were introduced by Atkin, are the difference of the i-th row and the i-th column in the Ferrers graph. Recently, in the study of singular overpartitions, George Andrews revisited successive ranks and parity blocks. Motivated by his work, Seunghyun Seo and I investigated partitions with prescribed successive rank parity blocks. In this talk, I will present some results from the collaboration with Seo.
