This book contains seventeen contributions made to George Andrews on the
occasion of his sixtieth birthday, ranging from classical number theory
(the theory of partitions) to classical and algebraic combinatorics. Most
of the papers were read at the 42nd session of the Séminaire Lotharingien
de Combinatoire that took place at Maratea, Basilicata, in August 1998.
This volume contains a long memoir on Ramanujan's Unpublished
Manuscript and the Tau functions studied with a contemporary eye, together
with several papers  dealing with the theory of partitions. There is also
a description of a maple package to deal with general q-calculus. More
subjects on algebraic combinatorics are developed, especially the theory
of Kostka polynomials, the ice square model, the combinatorial theory of
classical numbers, a new approach to determinant calculus.
