Partition Identities, Q-series and the Quest for Rogers-Ramanujan Involutions

30 November 2016
Adam Keilthy
This talk will introduce some arguably trivial results about partition identities, and generating functions for various counts of partitions. We will discuss methods of proving q-series identities via bijections of partitions, and proving partition identities via analytic methods. We will then comment on the Rogers-Ramanujan identities, their combinatorial interpretation, and their various methods of proof.
