Review:  For even n, let p(n) denote the number of partitions of n and G(n) denote the number of graphical partitions of n. A partition \pi = (\lambda1,\lambda2,...,\lambdam) is graphical if there exists a graph with degree sequence \pi. The authors discuss progress and possible lines in enquiry on the questions of whether or not limn ––> ooG(n)/p(n) approaches 0, and prove two inequalities:

limsupn ––> oo{G(n)\over P(n)} \leq .4258, liminfn ––> oon ½{G(n)\over P(n)} \geq {\pi\over\sqrt 6}.
