This talk will introduce P.A. MacMahon's method of partition analysis. We will the discuss some of its applications including our most recent discovery of certain partitions realted to directed graphs that have modular forms as generating functions and consequently have a variety of interesting related arithmetical problems and prospects. This work is joint with Peter Paule and Axel Riese.
