Ole Warnaar (Queensland, Australia) - Thursday, September 8, 2022 - 4:00 PM-5 PM (IST)

After a refreshing break in a summer with many opportunities to meet in person, we are back with a talk by Professor Ole Warnaar of the University of Queensland, Australia. 

Talk Announcement:

Title:  Cylindric partitions and Rogers--Ramanujan identities

Speaker: S. Ole Warnaar (University of Queensland, Australia)
When: Thursday, September 8, 2022 - 4:00 PM - 5:00 PM (IST) 

Where: Zoom. Please ask the organisers for a link

Tea or Coffee: Please bring your own.


Cylindric partitions, first introduced by Gessel and 
Krattenthaler in 1997, are an affine (or toroidal) analogue of
ordinary plane partitions. Perhaps somewhat surprisingly, cylindric 
partitions have a close connection to Rogers--Ramanujan-type $q$-series 
identities. In this talk I will try to explain this connection, and report 
on some new Rogers--Ramanujan identities for the affine Lie algebra 
$\mathrm{A}_2^{(1)}$ that follow naturally from this connection.
