language = {english},

abstract = {The theory of partition congruences has been a fascinating and difficult subject for over a century now. In attempting to prove a given congruence family, multiple possible complications include the genus of the underlying modular curve, representation difficulties of the associated sequences of modular functions, and difficulties regarding the piecewise $ell$-adic convergence of elements of the associated space of modular functions. However, our knowledge of the subject has developed substantially and continues to develop. In this very brief survey, we will discuss the utility of modular functions in proving partition congruences, both theoretical and computational, and many of the problems in the subject that are yet to be overcome.},
