Abstract

In this paper, we study arithmetic properties of a partition function related to an eighth order mock theta function of Gordon and McIntosh. Via elementary generating function manipulations, a complete characterization of the parity of this function is presented, from which infinitely many Ramanujan-like congruences modulo 2 are obtained. In addition, many congruences modulo certain numbers of the form 2α3β5 are presented.
