Solution?

I do not know if it is correct, or how important it is, but here's a claim that a problem that has been around since Euler is solved: Finite formula found for partition numbers. Sandy Harris 00:59, 22 January 2011 (UTC)

If this is true then it certainly is very interesting. A colleague of mine may know more. (Incidently, this page is only sort of disambiguation.) Thank you, Sandy. --Peter Schmitt 01:34, 22 January 2011 (UTC)
