The arithmetic properties of the ordinary partition function $p(n)$ have been the topic of intensive study for the past century. Ramanujan proved that there are linear congruences of the form $p(\ell n+\beta)\equiv 0\pmod\ell$ for the primes $\ell=5, 7, 11$, and it is known that there are no others of this form. On the other hand, for every prime $\ell\geq 5$ there are infinitely many examples of congruences of the form $p(\ell Q^m n+\beta)\equiv 0\pmod\ell$ where $Q\geq 5$ is prime and $m\geq… 8 Citations Congruences for level$1$cusp forms of half-integral weight • Robert Dicks • Mathematics Proceedings of the American Mathematical Society • 2021 Suppose that$\ell \geq 5$is prime. For a positive integer$N$with$4 \mid N$, previous works studied properties of half-integral weight modular forms on$\Gamma_0(N)\$ which are supported on
Congruences like Atkin's for the partition function

Let p(n) be the ordinary partition function. In the 1960s Atkin found a number of examples of congruences of the form p(Qln+ β) ≡ 0 (mod l) where l and Q are prime and 5 ≤ l ≤ 31; these lie in two
Congruence relations for r-colored partitions
Let l ≥ 5 be prime. For the partition function p(n) and 5 ≤ l ≤ 31, Atkin found a number of examples of primes Q ≥ 5 such that there exist congruences of the form p(lQn + β) ≡ 0 (mod l). Recently,

. We investigate congruence relations of the form p r ( (cid:96)mn + t ) ≡ 0 (mod (cid:96) ) for all n , where p r ( n ) is the number of r -colored partitions of n and m, (cid:96) are distinct
Relations among Ramanujan-Type Congruences II
We show that Ramanujan-type congruences are preserved by the action of the shallow Hecke algebra and provide several structure results for them. We discover a dichotomy between congruences
Relations among Ramanujan-Type Congruences I.
We prove that Ramanujan-type congruences for integral weight modular forms away from the level and the congruence prime are equivalent to specific Hecke congruences.More generally, for weakly

We prove that Ramanujan-type congruences for integral weight modular forms away from the level and the congruence prime are equivalent to specific Hecke congruences. More generally, for weakly

We extend a holomorphic projection argument of our earlier work to prove a novel divisibility result for non-holomorphic congruences of Hurwitz class numbers. This result allows us to establish
