Bijective proofs of some new MacMahon-style partition identities 

Matthew Russell, Rutgers University 

Location:  Hill 705
Date & time: Thursday, 01 March 2018 at 5:00PM - 5:48PM

Abstract:  Two of Doron's favorite mathematicians are J. J. Sylvester and Major P. A. MacMahon. I will make Doron happy by using bijective ideas drawn from the work of the former to prove partition identities that generalize work of the latter.

Many of these identities were conjectured after computer searches that were joint work of the speaker with Shashank Kanade and Debajyoti Nandi.
