If s and t are relatively prime integers, J.B. Olsson proved in (J. Comb.Theory, Ser. A 116:733–740, 2009) that the s-core of a t-core partition is again a t-core partition, and that the s-bar-core of a t-bar-core partition is again a t-bar-core partition. Here generalised results are proved for partitions and bar partitions when the restriction that s and t be relatively prime is removed.
