The ring of symmetric functions Λ, with natural basis given by the Schur functions, arise in many different areas of mathematics. For example, as the cohomology ring of the grassmanian, and as the representation ring of the symmetric group. One may define a coproduct on Λ by the plethystic addition on alphabets. In this way the ring of symmetric functions(More)
Richard A. (Dick) Askey1 was born June 4, 1933 in St. Louis, Missouri. He received his PhD at Princeton University in 1961 under the direction of Salomon Bochner. After instructorships at Washington University and the University of Chicago he joined the faculty of the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 1963, where he became full professor in 1968. Since(More)
Our study has its origin in the work of H. M. Farkas and I. Kra, who observed that certain theta function identities can be transformed into remarkable identities for partition functions. The present author then observed that many of these theta function identities can be recast in the language of Ramanujan’s modular equations. The author and his co-author,(More)
