Review: [For the entire collection see Zbl 625.00018.]
The authors consider the simple, symmetric random walk on the r-dimensional integer lattice. They present a number of unsolved problems together with the relevant known results; they do not give proofs but provide ample references. Together with the presented unsolved problems they indicate their beliefs on the solvability with existing methods. Among the problems covered are: favourite values, long head-runs, densities (local times) and for r > 2 path-covering problems.
