Chapter Summary: We use generalized lecture hall partitions to discover a new pair of q-series identities. These identities are unusual in that they involve partitions into parts from asymmetric residue classes, much like the little Göllnitz partition theorems. We derive a two-parameter generalization of our identities that, surprisingly, gives new analytic counterparts of the little Göllnitz ... Read more

Georgia Southern University faculty member William T. Allison authored The Gulf War, 1990-1991.

Joseph Domingo-Ferrer and Iienia Rinnirello1-1-2012
Georgia Southern University faculty member Anna Oganian co-authored "Hybrid Microdata via Model-Based Clustering" in Privacy in Statistical Databases.
Chapter Summary: In this paper we propose a new scheme for statistical disclosure limitation which can be classified as a hybrid method of protection, that is, a method that combines properties of perturbative and synthetic methods. This approach is based on model-based clustering with the subsequent synthesis of the records within each cluster. The novelty is that the clustering and synthesis methods have been carefully chosen to fit each other in view of reducing information loss. The model-based clustering tries to obtain ... Read more

Michael Henle and Brain Hopkins1-1-2012
Georgia Southern University faculty members Ionut E. Iacob, T. Bruce McLean and Hua Wang co-authored “The V-ﬂex, Triangle Orientation, and Catalan Numbers in Hexaﬂexagons” in the publication Martin Gardner in the Twenty-First Century.
Chapter Summary: Regular hexaflexagons mysteriously change faces as you pinch flex them. This paper describes a different flex, the V-flex, which allows the hexahexaflexagon (with only 9 faces under the pinch flex) to have 3420 faces. The article goes on to explain the classification of triangle orientations in a hexaflexagon and to give an example of flexagon combinatorics.
