Year-end appeal: Please make a donation to the OEIS Foundation to support ongoing development and maintenance of the OEIS. We are now in our 56th year, we are closing in on 350,000 sequences, and we’ve crossed 9,700 citations (which often say “discovered thanks to the OEIS”).

COMMENTS

Ramanujan theta functions: f(q) (see A121373), phi(q) (A000122), psi(q) (A010054), chi(q) (A000700).

Denoted u(n)/2 by Lossers. t(n) is A097566(n). Stanley's f(n) is A085261(n). Partitions p(n) is A000041(n).

As noted in the solution the number of odd parts of a partition and its conjugate are of the same parity as n. Hence the difference in the number of odd parts must be even and if it is not divisible by 4 then it is of the form 4*k + 2 and the partition is not self conjugate.

FORMULA

Expansion of x^2 * psi(x^16) / (f(-x) * phi(x^2)) in powers of x where phi(), psi(), f() are Ramanujan theta functions.

Expansion of q^(1/24) * (eta(q^2) * eta(q^8) * eta(q^32))^2 / (eta(q) * eta(q^4)^5 * eta(q^16)) in powers of q.

Euler transform of period 32 sequence [ 1, -1, 1, 4, 1, -1, 1, 2, 1, -1, 1, 4, 1, -1, 1, 3, 1, -1, 1, 4, 1, -1, 1, 2, 1, -1, 1, 4, 1, -1, 1, 1, ...].

p(n) = t(n) + u(n). f(n) = t(n) - u(n). u(n) = 2*a(n).

EXAMPLE

G.f. = x^2 + x^3 + x^5 + 5*x^6 + 5*x^7 + x^8 + 5*x^9 + 18*x^10 + 18*x^11 + ...

G.f. = q^47 + q^71 + q^119 + 5*q^143 + 5*q^167 + q^191 + 5*q^215 + ...

a(6) = 5 because ([6], [1,1,1,1,1,1]), ([5,1], [2,1,1,1,1]), ([4,2], [2,2,1,1]), ([4,1,1], [3,1,1,1]), ([3,3], [2,2,2]) are the 5 pairs of partitions of 6 where each partition and its transpose number of odd parts differ by 6, 2, 2, 2, 2 which are of the form 4*k + 2.
