Abstract: In a previous paper, the author gave a combinatorial proof and refinement of Siladić’s theorem, a Rogers-Ramanujan type partition identity arising from the study of Lie algebras. Here we use the basic idea of the method of weighted words introduced by Alladi and Gordon to give a non-dilated version, further refinement and companion of Siladić’s theorem. However, while in the work of Alladi and Gordon, identities were proved by doing transformations on generating functions, we use recurrences and $q$-difference equations, as the original method seems difficult to apply in our case. As the non-dilated version features the same infinite product as Schur’s theorem, another dilation allows us to find a new interesting companion of Schur’s theorem, with difference conditions very different from the original ones.
