COMMENTS

Define F(x,q) = Sum_{n>=0} (2*n+1)*q^n*x^(n*(n+1)/2); then F(x,q)^(1/3) is an integer series in x when q = -1 (mod 9) or when q = 0 (mod 3). At q=-1 we have the famous result of Jacobi: F(x,-1)^(1/3) = (1 - 3*x + 5*x^3 - 7*x^6 + 9*x^10 +...)^(1/3) = 1 + Sum_{n>=1} (-1)^n * (x^(n*(3*n-1)/2) + x^(n*(3*n+1)/2) ).
