11P: Additive number theory; partitions


Introduction

History

Applications and related fields

Note that some of the principal questions about partitions can be answered with Bell numbers and Stirling numbers; these are discussed in 11B among other Sets and Sequences. More general set-partitioning problems are treated in Combinatorics.
