### How to find the right path of integration to get the asymptotic partition formula

I am trying to understand how the asymptotic partition formula $p(n) \sim \frac{e^{\pi\sqrt{\frac{2n}{3}}}}{4n\sqrt3}$ was derived for a project and have been reading and following many papers. I am ...

### Finding an inclusion-based path through 2-part set partitions

Given $S = \{1, 2, \ldots, n\}$, consider partitions of $S$ of the form $(R, R')$ where $R \subset S$ and $R'$ is $S \setminus R$, the complement of $R$ in $S$. The goal is to list 2-part partitions ...

### Skewed plane partition with only row fillings reversed

The number of plane partitions in a bounded box is well-studied and dates back to MacMahon, at the start of this paper by Sam Hopkins and Tri Lai, p9, they summarized current results on the ...

### Reference for modularity of the Andrews–Gordon–Rogers–Ramanujan identities?

The right-hand side of the identity https://mathworld.wolfram.com/Andrews-GordonIdentity.html is a $q$-series $\frac{(q^i,q^{2k+1-i},q^{2k+1};q^k)_\infty}{(q;q)_\infty}$; is there a reference of its ...

### Plane partitions as sums of determinants

Consider the Vandermonde's determinant computed by $$V(x_1,\dots,x_m):=\det(x_j^{i-1})_{i,j=1}^m=\prod_{1\leq i<j\leq m}(x_i-x_j).$$ The number of plane partitions in an $n\times m\times m$ box (...

### Olympiad problem relevant to $(a,b)$-feasible pair

Recently, a mathematical olympiad problem is proposed as follows: Let $G$ be a graph with $|V| = 100$ and $\delta(G) \geqslant 10$. Prove that there is an integer $0 \leqslant k \leqslant 5$, such ...

### Intersection numbers of moduli spaces and noncrossing partitions

The coefficients of the monomials $u_1^{e_1}u_2^{e_2} \ldots u_n^{e_n}$ of the partition polynomials (ParPs) $[M=M1]$ on pg. 831 of The Handbook of Mathematical Functions by Abramowitz and Stegun are ...

### The number of partitions of a positive integer allowing at most r repetitions of any part

Let $q_r(n)$ be the number of partitions of the positive integer $n$ allowing at most $r$ repetitions of any of the parts. (For $r=1$ this is just the usual number of partitions of $n$ into distinct ...

### Validating a result on evaluating Jack polynomials

I am currently working through the following paper: Lapointe L., Lascoux A., Morse J. Determinantal Expression and Recursion for Jack Polynomials Electron. J. Combin. 7 (2000), Notes 1. DOI: 10.37236/...
Rademacher’s formula for the partition function allows fast computation using high precision arithmetic, but requiring a lot of memory. Here is an example computation of $p(10^{20})$ by Fredrik ...
