# THE PARTITION FUNCTION AND HECKE OPERATORS

@inproceedings{Ono2011THEPF, title={THE PARTITION FUNCTION AND HECKE OPERATORS}, author={Ken Ono}, year={2011} }

The theory of congruences for the partition function p(n) depends heavily on the properties of half-integral weight Hecke operators. The subject has been complicated by the absence of closed formulas for the Hecke images P (z) | T (`), where P (z) is the relevant modular generating function. We obtain such formulas using Euler’s Pentagonal Number Theorem and the denominator formula for the Monster Lie algebra. As a corollary, we obtain congruences for certain powers of Ramanujan’s Delta…

These results depend on the recent result of Ono that \(\mathcal{M}_{\ell}(z/24)\) is a weakly holomorphic modular form of weight \(\tfrac{3} {2}\) for the full modular group.

It is reported that such congruences are much more widespread than was previously known, and the theoretical framework that appears to explain every known Ramanujan-type congruence is described.

The Theory of Partitions

- Mathematics

The generating functions which occur in the theory of partitions and functions closely related to them belong to two important classes of functions, namely the theta functions and the modular functions, both of which have received much attention and have been most thoroughly investigated since the time of Jacobi.

AbstractLet p(n) denote the number of unrestricted partitions of a non-negative integer n. In 1919, Ramanujan proved that for every non-negative n
