    Cool Number Patterns

    An unrestricted (order does not count, equality of sizes is ok) partition is called self-conjugate if it is identical with its conjugate. E.g. 8 = 4 + 2 + 1 + 1. Show that the number of self-conjugate unrestricted partitions of n is equal to the number of partitions of n into distinct odd parts, and express this result as an identity of generating functions.

    Please define that term.
    I have done many problems with partitions of integers, but I have never seen that term.
