International audience It is well known that Ramanujan conjectured congruences modulo powers of 5, 7 and 11 for the partition function. These were subsequently proved by Watson (1938) and Atkin (1967). In 2009 Choi, Kang, and Lovejoy proved congruences modulo powers of 5 for the crank parity function. The generating function for the rank parity function is f (q), which is the first example of a mock theta function that Ramanujan mentioned in his last letter to Hardy. We prove congruences…

Generating Functions of the Hurwitz Class Numbers Associated with Certain Mock Theta Functions

We find Hecke-Rogers type series representations of generating functions of the Hurwitz class numbers which are similar to certain mock theta functions. We also prove two combinatorial



A simple proof of the Ramanujan conjecture for powers of 5.

Ramanujan conjectured, and G. N. Watson proved, that if n is of a specific form then p (n), the number of partitions of «, is divisible by a high power of 5. In the present note, we establish

The Andrews–Sellers family of partition congruences


In 1944, Freeman Dyson initiated the study of ranks of integer partitions. Here we solve the classical problem of obtaining formulas for Ne(n) (resp. No(n)), the number of partitions of n with even


The primary goal of this note is to prove the congruence ϕ 3 ( 3 n + 2 ) ≡ 0 ( mod 3 ) , where ϕ 3 ( n ) denotes the number of F -partitions of n with at most 3 repetitions. Secondarily, we

A Proof of some identities of Ramanujan using modular forms

In 1974 B. J. Birch [1] published a description of some manuscripts of Ramanujan which contained, among other things, a list of forty identities involving the Rogers-Ramanujan functions At that time

Automatic Proof of Theta-Function Identities

This is a tutorial for using two new MAPLE packages, thetaids and ramarobinsids. The thetaids package is designed for proving generalized eta-product identities using the valence formula for modular

On Rationally Parametrized Modular Equations

Many rationally parametrized elliptic modular equations are derived. Each comes from a family of elliptic curves attached to a genus-zero congruence subgroup $\Gamma_0(N)$, as an algebraic
