On a problem of George Andrews concerning partitions with even parts below odd parts
- 41 Downloads
Recently, George Andrews gave a detailed study of partitions with even parts below odd parts in which only the largest even part appears an odd number of times. In this note, we provide a combinatorial proof of a generating function identity related to such partitions. This answers a problem of Andrews.
