Partition identities and quiver representations

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


We present a particular connection between classical partition combinatorics and the theory of quiver representations. Specifically, we give a bijective proof of an analogue of A. L. Cauchy’s Durfee square identity to multipartitions. We then use this result to give a new proof of M. Reineke’s identity in the case of quivers Q of Dynkin type A. Our identity is stated in terms of the lacing diagrams of S. Abeasis–A. Del Fra, which parameterize orbits of the representation space of Q for a fixed dimension vector..
