##### 2: 26.19 Mathematical Applications
###### §26.19 Mathematical Applications
Combinatorics has applications to analysis, algebra, and geometry. …Partitions and plane partitions have applications to representation theory (Bressoud (1999), Macdonald (1995), and Sagan (2001)) and to special functions (Andrews et al. (1999) and Gasper and Rahman (2004)). …
##### 3: 26.20 Physical Applications
###### §26.20 Physical Applications
An English translation of Pólya (1937) on applications of combinatorics to chemistry has been published as Pólya and Read (1987). …The latter reference also describes chemical applications of other combinatorial techniques. Applications of combinatorics, especially integer and plane partitions, to counting lattice structures and other problems of statistical mechanics, of which the Ising model is the principal example, can be found in Montroll (1964), Godsil et al. (1995), Baxter (1982), and Korepin et al. (1993). For an application of statistical mechanics to combinatorics, see Bressoud (1999). …
