An Implementation of Radu's Ramanujan-Kolberg Algorithm
Sprache des Titels:
In 2015 Cristian-Silviu Radu designed an algorithm to detect identities of a class studied by Ramanujan and Kolberg. This class includes the famous identities by Ramanujan which provide a witness to the divisibility properties of $p(5n+4),$ $p(7n+5)$. We give an implementation of this algorithm using Mathematica. The basic theory is first described, and an outline of the algorithm is briefly given, in order to describe the functionality and utility of our package. We thereafter give multiple examples of applications to recent work in partition theory. In many cases we have used our package to derive alternate proofs of various identities or congruences; in other cases we have improved previously established identities, and in at least one case we have confirmed a standing conjecture.
