Abstract:

In 1918, Ramanijan collaborated with G.H. Hardy to study many areas of mathematics, including partition theory. One of the most celebrated results in partition theory is Ramanujan's Congruences. One approach to proving these congruences done by Atkin and Swinnerton-Dyer in 1954 used rank difference functions. This approach inspired the work done in this talk. The goal of this talk is to present some recent results for some Ramanujan-like congruences related to multipartitions.
