Special functions by George E Andrews ( )
22 editions published between 1999 and 2013 in English and German and held by 1,524 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This treatise presents an overview of special functions, focusing primarily on hypergeometric functions and the associated hypergeometric series, including Bessel functions and classical orthogonal polynomials. The basic building block of the functions studied in this book is the gamma function. In addition to relatively new work on gamma and beta functions, such as Selberg's multidimensional integrals, a number of important but relatively unknown nineteenth century results are included."--BOOK JACKET. "The authors provide organizing ideas, motivation, and historical background for the study and application of some important special functions. This work can serve as a learning tool and lasting reference for students and researchers in special functions, mathematical physics, differential equations, mathematical computing, number theory, and combinatorics."--BOOK JACKET
The theory of partitions by George E Andrews ( Book )
29 editions published between 1973 and 2003 in English and held by 981 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Discusses mathematics related to partitions of numbers into sums of positive integers
Ramanujan's lost notebook by George E Andrews ( )
47 editions published between 2005 and 2013 in English and held by 943 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In the spring of 1976, George Andrews of Pennsylvania State University visited the library at Trinity College, Cambridge, to examine the papers of the late G.N. Watson. Among these papers, Andrews discovered a sheaf of 138 pages in the handwriting of Srinivasa Ramanujan. This manuscript was soon designated, "Ramanujan's lost notebook." Its discovery has frequently been deemed the mathematical equivalent of finding Beethoven's tenth symphony. The "lost notebook" contains considerable material on mock theta functions and so undoubtedly emanates from the last year of Ramanujan's life. It should be emphasized that the material on mock theta functions is perhaps Ramanujan's deepest work. Mathematicians are probably several decades away from a complete understanding of those functions.; More than half of the material in the book is on q-series, including mock theta functions; the remaining part deals with theta function identities, modular equations, incomplete elliptic integrals of the first kind and other integrals of theta functions, Eisenstein series, particular values of theta functions, the Rogers-Ramanujan continued fraction, other q-continued fractions, other integrals, and parts of Hecke's theory of modular forms
Number theory by George E Andrews ( Book )
25 editions published between 1971 and 2012 in English and held by 855 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Integer partitions by George E Andrews ( Book )
9 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 290 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The aim of this introductory textbook is to provide an accessible and wide-ranging introduction to partitions, without requiring anything more of the reader than some familiarity with polynomials and infinite series. Many exercises are included, together with some solutions and helpful hints."--BOOK JACKET
Ramanujan's lost notebook by George E Andrews ( )
in English and held by 259 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This is the first of approximately four volumes devoted to providing statements, proofs, and discussions of all the claims made by Srinivasa Ramanujan in his lost notebook and all his other manuscripts and letters published with the lost notebook
The Continued fractions found in the unorganized portions of Ramanujan's notebooks by George E Andrews ( Book )
8 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 249 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The Rademacher legacy to mathematics : the centenary conference in honor of Hans Rademacher, July 21-25, 1992, the Pennsylvania State University by Hans Rademacher Centenary Conference ( Book )

Ramanujan's lost notebook by George E Andrews ( )
2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 232 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In the spring of 1976, George Andrews of Pennsylvania State University visited the library at Trinity College, Cambridge, to examine the papers of the late G.N. Watson. Among these papers, Andrews discovered a sheaf of 138 pages in the handwriting of Srinivasa Ramanujan. This manuscript was soon designated, "Ramanujan's lost notebook." Its discovery has frequently been deemed the mathematical equivalent of finding Beethoven's tenth symphony. This volume is the fourth of five volumes that the authors plan to write on Ramanujan's lost notebook. In contrast to the first three books on Ramanujan's Lost Notebook, the fourth book does not focus on q-series. Most of the entries examined in this volume fall under the purviews of number theory and classical analysis. Several incomplete manuscripts of Ramanujan published by Narosa with the lost notebook are discussed. Three of the partial manuscripts are on diophantine approximation, and others are in classical Fourier analysis and prime number theory. Most of the entries in number theory fall under the umbrella of classical analytic number theory. Perhaps the most intriguing entries are connected with the classical, unsolved circle and divisor problems."--Publisher's description
Generalized Frobenius partitions by George E Andrews ( Book )
8 editions published in 1984 in English and held by 225 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
On the general Rogers-Ramanujan theorem by George E Andrews ( Book )

The Andrews festschrift : seventeen papers on classical number theory and combinatorics by Dominique Foata ( Book )
5 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 130 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This book contains seventeen contributions made to George Andrews on the occasion of his sixtieth birthday, ranging from classical number theory (the theory of partitions) to classical and algebraic combinatorics. Most of the papers were read at the 42nd session of the Sminaire Lotharingien de Combinatoire that took place at Maratea, Basilicata, in August 1998. This volume contains a long memoir on Ramanujan's Unpublished Manuscript and the Tau functions studied with a contemporary eye, together with several papers dealing with the theory of partitions. There is also a description of a maple package to deal with general q-calculus. More subjects on algebraic combinatorics are developed, especially the theory of Kostka polynomials, the ice square model, the combinatorial theory of classical numbers, a new approach to determinant calculus
Miocene stratigraphy of the Solomons Island, Maryland, corehole by Thomas G Gibson ( Book )
1 edition published in 1994 in English and held by 109 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

4 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 99 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This volume contains the proceedings of the Topics in Number Theory Conference held at the Pennsylvania State University from July 31 through August 3, 1997. It contains seventeen research papers covering many areas of number theory; among them are contributions from four of the eight plenary speakers."--BOOK JACKET
Partitions : yesterday and today by George E Andrews ( Book )
3 editions published in 1979 in English and held by 76 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Ramanujan's lost notebook by George E Andrews ( )
7 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 70 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This volume is the second of approximately four volumes that the authors plan to write on Ramanujan's lost notebook, which is broadly interpreted to include all material published in The Lost Notebook and Other Unpublished Papers in 1988. The primary topics addressed in the authors' second volume on the lost notebook are q-series, Eisenstein series, and theta functions. Most of the entries on q-series are located in the heart of the original lost notebook, while the entries on Eisenstein series are either scattered in the lost notebook or are found in letters that Ramanujan wrote to G.H. Hardy from nursing homes."--Publisher's description
