Speaker: Robert Schneider, Emory University

Abstract: We use sums over partitions to compute the values of constants such as $\pi$, and to find partition-theoretic analogs of the Riemann zeta function, multiple zeta values, and other objects from classical number theory. These partition zeta functions form a very general class of which the classical zeta function is a special case; if time allows, we will also discuss generalized partition Dirichlet series and other partition-theoretic structures that specialize to classical number-theoretic phenomena.
