Review:  [For the entire collection see Zbl 465.00008.]
In this wide-ranging article, the author describes some intriguing problems that have interested him ans others, and he states some old and new conjectures. The first section deals with various questions concerning the divisors of n. The second is concerned with bounds for the greatest k for which the sums ai+aj, where 1 \leq a1 > ... < ak \leq n, are distinct. The final section describes a variety of problems on squarefree integers and similarly constructed sequences, including those on the gaps between consecutive elements, and ends with an interesting theorem on squarefree integers.
