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 de nition of the Gaussian coefficients. In the formulation of our involution, an overline in the representation of an overpartition is en- dowed with a weight.
