Review:  [For the entire collection see Zbl 214.00106.]
Several solved and unsolved problems are discussed. Here we just mention a few of them. Let m \geq 2k. Is it true that \binom{m}{k} has a divisor d satisfying cm < d < m where c is an absolute constant? Is it true that for every \epsilon > 0 there is a k0 so that for k > k0(\epsilon) k! is the product of k integers all greater than (1-\epsilon)k/e? Determine or estimate the smallest integer nk \geq 2k so that all prime factors of \binom{nk}{k} are greater than k. Selfridge and Erdös proved nk > k1+c and that nk is not monotonic.
