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)
1983 he was an invited speaker at the International Congress of Mathematicians (ICM) in Warszawa. In 2012 he received an honorary doctorate from SASTRA University in Kumbakonam, India. Dick Askey's research interests are Special Functions and Orthogonal Polynomials, and more generally Classical Analysis. His works often touch upon aspects of approximation(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)
