Speaker: Matt Mizuhara, PSU

Abstract: Ramanujan's celebrated congruences of the partition function p(n) have inspired a vast amount of results on various unrestricted and restricted partition functions. In 1989 Kwong characterized several cases of periodicity of rational polynomial functions modulo prime powers. These results yield an alternative approach to prove known congruences on restricted plane partitions as well as prove a new congruence.
