Review: [For the entire collection see Zbl 243.00004.]
Several solved and unsolved problems on partition calculus are discussed. Here I only state those problems which are mentioned in the paper and which have been solved since then. Jean Larson and Eric Milner proved \omega\omega > (\omega\omega,n)2, Baumgartner and Hajnal proved \lambda > (\alpha,..., \alpha)2 for every \alpha < \omega1, Nosal has several new results on \omegal > (\omegan,m)2 and Laver proved several of our conjectures on ordered sets, and last but not least Hajnal proved \omega21 (not)> (\omega21,3)2. The later results of Hajnal and Baumgartner give a complete discussion of the truth value of \omega2\alpha > (\omega2\alpha,3)2.
