Speaker: James Sellers, PSU

Abstract: Over the past several years, numerous authors have studied properties of the combinatorial objects known as overpartitions (which are natural generalizations of integer partitions). In this talk, we consider various classes of overpartitions where the overlined parts are restricted in specific ways which will be outlined in the talk. Once these new objects are defined, we will prove a number of Ramanujan-like congruences for many of these restricted overpartition functions using elementary generating function manipulations.
