    Quadratic forms and four partition functions modulo 3
    (De Gruyter, 2011-02) ;
    Recently, Andrews, Hirschhorn and Sellers have proven congruences modulo 3 for four types of partitions using elementary series manipulations. In this paper, we generalize their congruences using arithmetic properties of certain quadratic forms.

    Automorphic properties of generating functions for generalized rank moments and Durfee symbols
    We define two-parameter generalizations of two combinatorial constructions of Andrews: the kth symmetrized rank moment and the k-marked Durfee symbol. We prove that three specializations of the associated generating functions are so-called quasimock theta functions, while a fourth specialization gives quasimodular forms. We then define a two-parameter generalization of Andrews' smallest parts function and note that this leads to quasimock theta functions as well. The automorphic properties are deduced using q-series identities relating the relevant generating functions to known mock theta functions.

    Mixed Mock Modular Q-series
    (Indian Mathematical Society, 2013-12) ;
    Mixed mock modular forms are functions which lie in the tensor space of mock modular forms and modular forms. As q-hypergeometric series, mixed mock modular forms appear to be much more common than mock theta functions. In this survey we discuss some of the ways such series arise.

    Rank and crank moments for overpartitions
    We study two types of crank moments and two types of rank moments for overpartitions. We show that the crank moments and their derivatives, along with certain linear combinations of the rank moments and their derivatives, can be written in terms of quasimodular forms. We then use this fact to prove exact relations involving the moments as well as congruence properties modulo 3, 5, and 7 for some combinatorial functions which may be expressed in terms of the second moments. Finally, we establish a congruence modulo 3 involving one such combinatorial function and the Hurwitz class number H(n).

    Q-hypergeometric double sums as mock theta functions
    (Mathematical Science Publishers, 2013) ;
    Recently, Bringmann and Kane established two new Bailey pairs and used them to relate certain q-hypergeometric series to real quadratic fields. We show how these pairs give rise to new mock theta functions in the form of q-hypergeometric double sums. We also prove an identity between one of these sums and two classical mock theta functions introduced by Gordon and McIntosh.

    Mock theta double sums
    (Cambridge University Press, 2016-06-10) ;
    We prove a general result on Bailey pairs and show that two Bailey pairs of Bringmann and Kane are special cases. We also show how to use a change of base formula to pass from the pairs of Bringmann and Kane to pairs used by Andrews in his study of Ramanujan's seventh order mock theta functions. We derive several more Bailey pairs of a similar type and use these to construct a number of new q-hypergeometric double sums which are mock theta functions. Finally, we prove identities between some of these mock theta double sums and classical mock theta functions.

    On two 10th order mock theta identities
    (Springer, 2015-02) ;
    We give short proofs of conjectural identities due to Gordon and McIntosh involving two 10th order mock theta functions.

    The Bailey chain and mock theta functions
    (Elsevier, 2013-05) ;
    Standard applications of the Bailey chain preserve mixed mock modularity but not mock modularity. After illustrating this with some examples, we show how to use a change of base in Bailey pairs due to Bressoud, Ismail and Stanton to explicitly construct families of q-hypergeometric multisums which are mock theta functions. We also prove identities involving some of these multisums and certain classical mock theta functions.

    M_2-rank differences for overpartitions
    (Polskiej Akademi Nauk, Instytut Matematyczny, 2010) ;
    This is the third and final installment in our series of papers applying the method of Atkin and Swinnerton-Dyer to deduce formulas for rank differences. The study of rank differences was initiated by Atkin and Swinnerton-Dyer in their proof of Dyson’s conjectures concerning Ramanujan’s congruences for the partition function. Since then, other types of rank differences for statistics associated to partitions have been investigated. In this paper, we prove explicit formulas for M2-rank differences for overpartitions. Additionally, we express a third order mock theta function in terms of rank differences.

    Rank differences for overpartitions
    (Oxford University Press, 2008-06-02) ;
    In 1954, Atkin and Swinnerton-Dyer proved Dyson's conjectures on the rank of a partition by establishing formulae for the generating functions for rank differences in arithmetic progressions. In this paper, we prove formulae for the generating functions for rank differences for overpartitions. These are in terms of modular functions and generalized Lambert series.
