TALK ANNOUNCEMENT: Special RISC Algorithmic Combinatorics Seminar

Title: 4-Shadows in q-Series:
       Gupta, Kimberling, the Garden of Eden and the OEIS.

Speaker: Prof. George E. Andrews (Pennsylvania State University)

Time and Location: Wednesday, February 8, 2017, 2 p.m.;
                   RISC Seminarroom, Hagenberg castle.

This talk is devoted to discussing the implications of a very
elementary technique for proving mod 4 congruences in the theory of
partitions.  It starts with a tribute to the late Hans Raj Gupta and leads
in unexpected ways to partitions investigated by Clark Kimberling, to
Bulgarian Solitaire, and to Garden of Eden partitions.  Each surprise
busts forth from the OEIS.
