1. Introduction
First we give definitions of , the crank of partitions, , , and . We generate some generating functions related to the crank and show the coefficient of x is the algebraic relations in terms of various powers of z, the exponent of z represent the crank of partitions of n (for all ). We show the results with the help of examples when n = 5 and 6 respectively. We introduce the special term weight related to the vector partitions V and show the relations in terms of , weight and crank . We prove the Theorem “The number of partitions of n with crank is for all .”
2. Definitions
Now we give some definitions following (^{[3, 4, 5]}).
: Number of partitions of n, like 4, 3+1, 2+2, 2+1+1, 1+1+1+1. Therefore, and similarlyetc.
Crank of partitions ^{[2]}: For a partition , let denotes the largest part of , denote the number of 1’s in , and denote the number of parts of larger than , the crank is given by;
: The number of partitions of n with crank m.
2.1. NotationsFor all integers and all integers m, the number of n with crank equal to m is , like;
But we see that;
Since, the coefficient of x in the right hand side of the equation;
is i.e., the exponent of z being the crank of partition.
Therefore,
3. The Generating Function for
The generating function for is given by ^{[2]};
 (1) 
We see that the exponent of z represents the crank of partitions of n (for ). As for examples when n = 5 and 6,
For n = 5,
For n = 6,
4. Vector Partitions of n
Let, , where D denotes the set of partitions into distinct parts and P denotes the set of partitions. The set of vector partitions V is defined by the Cartesian product, .
For , where weight = , the crank .
We have 41 vector partitions of 4 are given in the following table:
From the above table we have,
and
1–1= 0
i.e., =
i.e.,
Again we have 83 vector partitions of 5 are given in the following table:
From this table we have;
1–1–1–1–1+1+1+1+1+1+1+1–1–1–1 =1
1–1–1–1–1+1+1+1+1+1+1+1–1–1–1 =1
1+1–1–1–1–1+1+1+1–1= 0
1+1–1–1–1–1+1+1+1–1= 0
1+1–1–1+1= 1
1+1–1–1+1= 1
1–1= 0
1–1= 0

;
i.e., = 7
i.e., = .
From above discussion we get;
Theorem: The number of partitions of n with crank is for all .
Proof: The generating function for is given by;
 (2) 
Now we distribute the function into two parts where first one represents the crank with and second one represents the crank with .
The first function is;
Counts (for ) the number of partitions with no 1’s and the exponent on z being the largest part of the partition where , like;
Here n = 4, the 5^{th} term is .
Again second partition is,
which counts the number of partitions with and the exponent on z is clearly , since , like;
Here n = 4, the 5^{th} term is i.e., .
Thus in the double series expansion of , we see that the coefficient of is the number of partitions of n in which . Equating the coefficient of from both sides in (2) we get the number of partitions of n with is for all . Hence the Theorem.
5. Conclusion
We have verified that the coefficient of x in the right hand side of the generating function for is an explanation of z, the exponents of z represent the crank of partitions, it is already shown with examples for n = 5 and 6. We have satisfied the result = , it is already shown when n = 4 and 5 respectively. For any positive integer of n we can verify the corresponding Theorem. We have already satisfied the Theorem for n = 4 and 5.
