Brian Drake, Grand Valley State University

One of the simplest ways to decompose a positive integer is to partition it.  For example, we can partition 9 as 5+2+1+1.  Despite the simple definition, a wealth of interesting results are known about these objects and their related structures.  In this talk we will consider two families of results; the Rogers-Ramanujan congruences and Young's lattice.  We will see the classical results as well as current related research using generalized partitions.

Refreshments precede the talk at 3:30 p.m. in North Hall 282.
