Arc spaces and partition identities

Abstract. An integer partition of an integer number n is simply a decreasing sequence of integers whose sum is equal to n. Naturally, integer partitions and their theory are ubiquitous in mathematics. I will report on a link between an algebro-geometric invariant of singularities and the theory of integer partitions in the spirit of Ramanujan. The talk is aimed at a wide audience of mathematicians.

Тhe lecture will be held in Hall 403, Institute of Mathematics and Informatics at the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences.
