Perhaps, not sure. I do know that formulas for partition numbers have been found. Ramanujan found one that was later improved by Selberg (I think) ...not sure about recent work though.

For a good - and inexpensive - introduction to partitions, you can consider the book 'Number Theory' by George E. Andrews, who is an expert, a reviewer at Amazon says 'the reigning expert'.
