Partition bijections, a survey



We present an extensive survey of bijective proofs of classical partitions identities. While most bijections are known, they are often presented in a different, sometimes unrecognizable way. Various extensions and generalizations are added in the form of exercises.


Integer partitions Young diagram q-series Bijection Involution Plane partitions Involution principle
