DESCRIPTION:Title: Partition congruences and the localization method\nby Nicola
s Allen Smoot (RISC) as part of Vanderbilt Number Theory Seminar\n\n\nAbst
ract\nA notable problem in partition theory is the study of infinite famil
ies of partition congruences modulo powers of a prime. It has recently be
en discovered that there exist congruence families\, associated with a mod
ular curve of genus 0\, for which the traditional methods of proof fail.
One such congruence family is related to the spt analogue of the omega moc
k theta function. We recently gave a proof of this congruence family by a
new method\, based on the manipulation of a localized polynomial ring\, r
ather than by studying $ \\mathbb{Z}[X] $ via the more classical methods.
We will give a brief outline of this method\, its surprisingly unique cha
racteristics\, and its potential for future work.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: Statistics for Partitions and Unimodal Sequences\nby Walter
Bridges (LSU) as part of Vanderbilt Number Theory Seminar\n\n\nAbstract\nT
he study of the asymptotic distribution of statistics for partitions lies
at a crossroads of classical methods and the more recent probabilistic fra
mework of Fristedt and others. We discuss two results---one that uses the
probabilistic machinery and one that calls for a more direct ``elementary
'' method.\n\nWe first review Fristedt's conditioning device and\, followi
ng Romik\, implement a similar construction to give an asymptotic formula
for distinct parts partitions of $n$ with largest part bounded by $t\\sqrt
{n}$. We discuss the intuitive advantages of this approach over a classic
al circle method/saddle-point method proof.\n\nWe then turn to unimodal se
quences\, a generalization of partitions where parts are allowed to increa
se and then decrease. We use an elementary approach to prove limit shapes
for the diagrams of strongly\, semi-strict and unrestricted unimodal sequ
ences. We also recover a limit shape for overpartitions via a simple tran
sfer.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: Indefinite zeta functions\nby Gene Kopp (University of Brist
ol) as part of Vanderbilt Number Theory Seminar\n\n\nAbstract\nIndefinite
theta functions were introduced by Sander Zwegers in his thesis\, in which
they are used to generalize and explain the remarkable properties of Rama
nujan’s mock theta functions. In this talk\, we will discuss the Mellin
transforms of indefinite theta functions\, which we call indefinite zeta f
unctions. Indefinite zeta functions satisfy a functional equation and live
in a continuous parameter space. Special points in this parameter space y
ield arithmetically interesting zeta functions\, such as certain differenc
es of ray class zeta functions of real quadratic fields. Generally\, howev
er\, indefinite zeta functions are not Dirichlet series but have a series
expansion involving hypergeometric functions. We prove a Kronecker limit f
ormula in dimension 2 for indefinite zeta functions as s=0\, which special
izes to a new analytic formula for Stark class invariants.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: Partitions and quasimodular forms: variations on the Bloch-Okou
nkov theorem\nby Jan-Willem Van Ittersum (Utrecht University) as part
of Vanderbilt Number Theory Seminar\n\n\nAbstract\nPartitions of integers
and (quasi)modular forms are related in many ways. We discuss a connection
made by a certain normalized generating series of functions f on partitio
ns\, called the q-bracket of f. There are many families of functions on pa
rtitions\, such as (i) the shifted symmetric functions\, (ii) their p-adic
generalizations\, (iii) the weighted t-hook functions and (iv) symmetric
functions on partitions\, for which the corresponding q-brackets are quasi
modular forms. We explain how these four examples can be traced back to th
e generating series of shifted symmetric functions. The main technical too
l for doing so is the study of the Taylor coefficients of strictly meromor
phic quasi-Jacobi forms around rational lattice points.\n
