Review: Results on extremal families of divisors of numbers which are counterparts of known extremal set theory results are surveyed. Those properties considered include types of Sperner, Erdös-Ko-Rado, nonextendibility, restrictions on unions, intersections, inclusion, etc. Finally, a simple proof is given to a theorem of M. Geréb [On the smallest maximal sets of nonpairwise coprime divisors of a number (in Hungarian), Mat. Lapok 24, 375-380 (1973; Zbl 361.10007)].
