Title Of Talk: New Aspects of False Theta Functions

Abstract: Recently, I have been looking at Bailey's Lemma and Bailey pairs from the point of view of orthogonal polynomials. This perspective has yielded a number of new combinatorial results mostly involving the false theta functions of L.J. Rogers. We shall discuss the efficacy of this approach and shall apply it to various partition theoretic and combinatorial questions including "concave compositions" and "concatenable spiral self-avoiding walks."
