In 1894, Rogers found the two identities for the first time. In 1913, Ramanujan found the two identities later and then the two identities are known as The Rogers-Ramanujan Identities. In 1982, Baxter used the two identities in solving the Hard Hexagon Model in Statistical Mechanics. In 1829 Jacobi proved his triple product identity; it is used in proving The Rogers-Ramanujan Identities. In 1921, Ramanujan used Jacobi’s triple product identity in proving his famous partition congruences. This paper shows how to generate the generating function for C'(n), C1'(n), C''(n), and C1''(n), and shows how to prove the Corollaries 1 and 2 with the help of Jacobi’s triple product identity. This paper shows how to prove the Remark 3 with the help of various auxiliary functions and shows how to prove The Rogers-Ramanujan Identities with help of Ramanujan’s device of the introduction of a second parameter a.
