Combinatorial interpretations of Ramanujan's tau function
We use a q-series identity by Ramanujan to give a combinatorial
interpretation of Ramanujan's tau function which involves t-cores
and a new class of partitions which we call (m, k)-capsids.
The same method can be applied in conjunction with other related identities
yielding alternative combinatorial interpretations
of the tau function.
The following version is available:
Here are some
for checking some of the results of the paper with a MAPLE 2015 worksheet.
