Euler's partition theorem with upper bounds on multiplicities.

Combinatorics/Partitions Seminar

Meeting Details

For more information about this meeting, contact Matthew Katz, James Sellers, George Andrews.

Speaker: Ae Ja Yee, PSU

Abstract: In 1972, George Andrews obtained a theorem on equivalent upper bound sequences of multiplicities, from which the Euler partition theorem on partitions into distinct parts and odd parts can be deduced. In this talk, I will revisit Boulet's four parameter formula for partitions and discuss a unification of Bressenrodt's alternating sum refinement and Andrews' generalization of the Euler theorem.
