 Oct 21 asked Are there any (pairs of) simple distributions that give rise to a power law ratio? Apr 13 accepted Asymptotics for partitions of $n$ with largest part at most $k$ (or into at most $k$ parts) Apr 13 asked Asymptotics for partitions of $n$ with largest part at most $k$ (or into at most $k$ parts) Mar 30 accepted What is $\prod_{k=1}^n (1-x^k)$? Mar 30 comment What is $\prod_{k=1}^n (1-x^k)$? I see that equation 1.30 in Stanley gives the connection with partitions. In fact the reciprocal of the product that is in the title is what actually interested me, so this is quite convenient. Thanks again! Mar 30 comment What is $\prod_{k=1}^n (1-x^k)$? Great, thanks. I don't have Andrews but I will see if it's in Stanley's books, which I have at home. Mar 30 comment What is $\prod_{k=1}^n (1-x^k)$? @Qiaochu: Assuming it's hard to evaluate in general, are there special values of $n$ for which it's easy to evaluate? Mar 30 awarded Commentator Mar 30 comment What is $\prod_{k=1}^n (1-x^k)$? If it's got a name (e.g., "the Herp-Derp polynomial"), or other stuff that will help me find context for it online. Mar 30 asked What is $\prod_{k=1}^n (1-x^k)$? Mar 29 comment What is the asymptotic behavior of A103213 in OEIS? @Moron: I see that now, didn't parse the a(n) properly. My apologies. Mar 29 comment What is the asymptotic behavior of A103213 in OEIS? Another elegant answer! Mar 29 comment What is the asymptotic behavior of A103213 in OEIS? Oh, this is elegant. I'd considered Stirling but got caught up on something. But I didn't anticipate this. Mar 29 comment What is the asymptotic behavior of A103213 in OEIS? This is interesting, thanks. Mar 29 comment What is the asymptotic behavior of A103213 in OEIS? Nice, my original thought was to use Stirling but I must have made a mistake en route. Thanks. Mar 29 accepted What is the asymptotic behavior of A103213 in OEIS? Mar 29 comment What is the asymptotic behavior of A103213 in OEIS? After plotting, a plausible asymptote seems to be (a constant times) $\exp(2n/3)$. But I am not confident of this. Mar 29 asked What is the asymptotic behavior of A103213 in OEIS? Mar 24 accepted Does the functional equation $f(1/r) = rf(r)$ have any nontrivial solutions besides $f(r) = 1/\sqrt{r}$?
