ABSTRACT: By studying partitions with non-repeating odd parts using representations in terms of 2-modular graphs, we first derive a Lebesgue type q-series identity and use this to give a unified treatment of several fundamental identities in the theory of q-hypergeometric ...

The year 2016 marks 20 years since the publication of the paper "On the Lambert W function". As will be pointed out, the function was studied before 1996, but this publication has proved to be the most cited reference. The ...

I will discuss open problems in enumeration, including partitions, and special functions. This will include the Rogers-Ramanujan identities, Gessel paths, the Omega operator, generalized super Catalan numbers, very well poised series, finite difference calculus, finite fields, and homology questions. ...

A well studied (q,t)-analogue of symmetric functions are the Macdonald polynomials. In this talk I will survey another (q,t)-analogue, where q is a prime power from a finite field and t is an indeterminate. Analogues of facts about ...

The Fishburn numbers, originally considered by Peter C. Fishburn, have been shown to enumerate a variety of combinatorial objects. These include unlabelled interval orders on n elements, (2+2)--avoiding posets with n elements, upper triangular matrices with nonnegative integer entries and ...

We propose a novel method to model real online social networks where our growing scale-free networks have tunable clustering coefficient. Models which based on purely preferential attachment are not able to describe high clustering coefficient of social networks. Beside the ...

Refinements of the celebrated tangent and secant numbers give rise to bivariate statistical distributions that can be expressed, either by a finite difference equation system, or by a three-variate exponential generating function. The underlying combinatorial sets, counted by tangent and ...

In the first part of this talk, we give examples from the theories of short random walks, binomial congruences, positivity of rational functions and series for $1/\pi$, in which modular forms and Apery-like numbers appear naturally (though not necessarily obviously). ...

The boundary of the convex hull of a compact algebraic curve in real 3-space defines a real algebraic surface. For general curves, that boundary surface is reducible, consisting of tritangent planes and stationary bisecants. We express the degree of this ...

In his 1984 AMS Memoir, George Andrews defined two families of generalized Frobenius partition functions which he denoted $\phi_k(n)$ and $c\phi_k(n)$ where $k\geq 1.$ Both of these functions "naturally" generalize the unrestricted partition function $p(n)$ since $p(n) = \phi_1(n) ...

We use generating functions and complex-analytic methods to count integer lattice points in polytopes with rational vertices. More precisely, we study the number of lattice points as the polytope gets dilated by an integer factor. This expression is known as ...
