Combinatorics/Partitions Seminar

Speaker: James Sellers, PSU

Abstract: In this talk, we revisit a classic partition theorem due to MacMahon that relates partitions with all parts repeated at least once and partitions with parts congruent to $2,3,4,6 \pmod 6$, together with a generalization by Andrews and another by Subbarao. Then we develop a unified bijective proof for all three theorems involved, and obtain a natural further generalization as a result. This is joint work with Shishuo Fu, Chongqing University, China.
