Atul Dixit (IIT Gandhinagar) - Talk 1 on Thursday April 21, 4:00 PM - 4:30 PM

 Dear all,

On the coming Thursday, Atul Dixit (IIT, Gandhinagar) and Gaurav Bhatnagar (Ashoka University) will present the talks they presented at the recently concluded JMM meeting held online. Each talk will be approximately 20 minutes followed by 10 minutes for questions. The titles and abstracts are below.

We should say that during the summer, the talks in the seminar may be less as we are finally able to catch up with colleagues in person. 

Here is the announcement for Atul's talk.

Title:  Combinatorial identities associated with a bivariate generating function for overpartition pairs

Speaker: Atul Dixit (IIT, Gandhinagar)

When: Thursday, April 21, 2022 - 4:00 PM - 4:30 PM

Where: Zoom


We obtain a three-parameter $q$-series identity that generalizes two results of Chan and Mao. By specializing our identity, we derive new results of combinatorial significance in connection with $N(r, s, m, n)$, a function counting certain overpartition pairs recently introduced by Bringmann, Lovejoy and Osburn. For example, one of our identities gives a closed-form evaluation of a double series in terms of Chebyshev polynomials of the second kind, thereby resulting in an analogue of Euler's pentagonal number theorem. Another of our results expresses a multi-sum involving $N(r, s, m, n)$ in terms of just the partition function $p(n)$. Using a result of Shimura we also relate a certain double series with a weight 7/2 theta series. This is joint work with Ankush Goswami.
