An integer partition \(\lambda \vdash n\) corresponds, via its Ferrers diagram, to an artinian monomial ideal \(I \subset
{\mathbb{C} }[x,y]\) with \(\dim_{\mathbb{C} }{\mathbb{C} }[x,y]/I = n\). If \(\lambda\) corresponds to an integrally closed ideal we call it concave . We study generating functions for the number of concave partitions, unrestricted or with at most r parts.
