The Gaussian Coefficients and Overpartitions
William Y.C. Chen and James J.Y. Zhao
Abstract: We show that the formalism of overpartitions gives a simple involution for the product definition of the Gaussian coefficients. In the formulation of our involution, an overline in the representation of an overpartition is endowed with a weight.
