Book DetailsContemporary MathematicsVolume: 166; 1994; 369 ppMSC: Primary 11;
This book contains papers presented at the Hans Rademacher Centenary Conference, held at Pennsylvania State University in July 1992. The astonishing breadth of Rademacher's mathematical interests is well represented in this volume. The papers collected here range over such topics as modular forms, partitions and \(q\)series, Dedekind sums, and Ramanujan type identities. Rounding out the volume is the opening paper, which presents a biography of Rademacher. This volume is a fitting tribute to a remarkable mathematician whose work continues to influence mathematics today.
