Review: Let a = (an) and x = (xn) be sequences of non-negative integers. Let a.x = sum anxn. Letting x\pi denote a permutation of the sequence x, this paper investigates which subsets of R can be realised as a.x\pi. The main result is that if an increases unboundedly and xn is positive and decreases to zero, then the set of numbers in question is the interval [a.x,oo] if and only if an+1/an is uniformly bounded.
