This thesis is concerned mainly with the interplay between identities involving power series (which are called q-series) and combinatorics, in particular the theory of partitions. The thesis includes new proofs of some q-series identities and some ideas about the generating functions for the rank and crank, a new proof of the triple product identity and a combinatorial proof of a q-elliptic identity.
