A q-Analog of Beckwith's Identity

Combinatorics/Partitions Seminar

Meeting Details

For more information about this meeting, contact Barbara Baum.

Speaker: Kagan Kursungoz, Department of Mathematics, The Pennsylvania State University

Abstract: In a recent paper, Sellers et al. combinatorially proved and generalized a binomial coefficient identity due to Beckwith. q-analogs to some of those identities will be systematically constructed following Andrews' method to produce q-analogs. Partition theoretic interpretations of the resulting q-series identities will be discussed as time allows.
