On the k-measure of partitions and distinct partitions
Algebraic Combinatorics, Volume 5 (2022) no. 6, pp. 1353-1361.

The k-measure of an integer partition was recently introduced by Andrews, Bhattacharjee and Dastidar. In this paper, we establish trivariate generating function identities counting both the length and the k-measure for partitions and distinct partitions, respectively. The 2-measure case for partitions extends a result of Andrews, Bhattacharjee and Dastidar.
