Abstract

The order of a partition π (relative to N) is defined as the largest i for which the number of summands in the closed interval [i, i + N - 1] is at least i. By studying the generating function for partitions into distinct parts not exceeding 2N with given order, we are able to derive an identity of importance in the theory of partitions.
