Congruence properties of $S$-partition functions

Andrew Gruet, Linzhi Wang, Katherine Yu and Jiangang Zeng

Vol. 4 (2011), No. 4, 411–416
Abstract

We study the function p(S;n) that counts the number of partitions of n with elements in S, where S is a set of integers. Generalizing previous work of Kronholm, we find that given a positive integer m, the coefficients of the generating function of p(S;n) are periodic modulo m, and we use this periodicity to obtain families of S-partition congruences. In particular, we obtain families of congruences between partition functions p(S1;n) and p(S2;n).
