Title : The pentagonal theorem of sixty-three and generalizations of Cauchy's lemma

Abstract:

In this talk, we study the representability of integers as sums of pentagonal numbers. In particular, we prove the ``pentagonal theorem of $63$", which states that a sum of pentagonal numbers represents every non-negative integer if and only if it represents the integers 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 7, 8, 9, 11, 13, 14, 17, 18, 19, 23, 28, 31, 33, 34, 39, 42, and 63.

We also introduce a method to obtain a generalized version of Cauchy's lemma using representations of binary integral quadratic forms by quaternary quadratic forms, which plays a crucial role in proving the results. This is a joint work with Daejun Kim.
