Abstract

The late Leon Ehrenpreis originally posed the problem of showing that the difference of the two Rogers-Ramanujan products had positive coefficients without invoking the Rogers-Ramanujan identities. We first solve the problem generalized to the partial products and subsequently solve several related problems. The object is to introduce the anti-telescoping method which is capable of wide generalization.
