Although much is known about the partition function, little is known about its parity. For the polynomials D(x) := (Dx + 1)/24, where D ≡ 23 (mod 24), we show that there are infinitely many m (resp. n) for which p(D(m)) is even (resp. p(D(n)) is odd) if there is at least one such m (resp. n). We bound the first m and n (if any) in terms of the class number h(−D). For prime D we show that there are indeed infinitely many even values. To this end we construct new modular generating functions…
On the counting function of sets with even partition functions
Let q be an odd positive integer and P ∈ F2[z] be of order q and such that P (0) = 1. We denote by A = A(P ) the unique set of positive integers satisfying ∑ ∞ n=0 p(A, n)z n ≡ P (z) (mod 2), where
A Combinatorial Proof on Partition Function Parity
A new, self-contained proof of Subbarao's result is given by constructing a series of bijections and involutions, along the way getting a more general theorem concerning the enumeration of a special subset of integer partitions.

We prove that the parity of the partition function is given by the "trace" of the Hauptmodul for at points of complex multiplication. Using Hecke operators, we generalize this to relate the Hecke
Parity of the coefficients of Klein’s -function
Klein’s j-function is one of the most fundamental modular functions in number theory. However, not much is known about the parity of its coefficients. It is believed that the odd coefficients are

Andrews’ (k, i)-singular overpartition function Ck,i(n) counts the number of overpartitions of n in which no part is divisible by k and only parts ≡ ±i (mod k) may be overlined. In recent times,

If f(z) is a weight $${k\in \frac{1}{2}\mathbb {Z}}$$ meromorphic modular form on Γ0(N) satisfying$$f(z)=\sum_{n\geq n_0} a_ne^{2\pi i mnz},$$where $${m \nmid N,}$$ then f is constant. If k ≠ 0,
On Divisors, Congruences, and Symmetric Powers of Modular Forms
This thesis contains research articles on various topics in the theory of modular forms. First we investigate divisors of meromorphic modular forms of higher level using polar harmonic Maass forms of
Eulerian series, zeta functions and the arithmetic of partitions
In this Ph.D. dissertation (2018, Emory University) we prove theorems at the intersection of the additive and multiplicative branches of number theory, bringing together ideas from partition theory,
