Kağan Kurşungöz


An alternative characterization of $k$-marked Durfee symbols defined by Andrews is given. Some identities involving generating functions of $k$-marked Durfee symbols are proven combinatorially by considering the symbols not individually, but in equivalence classes. Also, a related binomial coefficient identity is obtained in the course.
