Abstract

Blecher ['Geometry for totally symmetric plane partitions (TSPPs) with self-conjugate main diagonal', Util. Math. 88 (2012), 223-235] defined the combinatorial objects known as 1-shell totally symmetric plane partitions of weight n. He also proved that the generating function for f(n), the number of 1-shell totally symmetric plane partitions of weight n, is given by ∑ n≥0 f(n)qn = 1+ ∑n≥1q3n-2i=0n-2(1+q6i+3). In this brief note, we prove a number of arithmetic properties satisfied by f(n) using elementary generating function manipulations and well-known results of Ramanujan and Watson.
