This volume is dedicated to Paul Erdos, who has profoundly influenced mathematics in this century, with over 1200 papers on number theory, complex analysis, probability theory, geometry, interpretation theory, algebra set theory and combinatorics. One of Erdos' hallmarks is the host of stimulating problems and conjectures, to many of which he has attached monetary prices, in accordance with their notoriety. A feature of this volume is a collection of some fifty outstanding unsolved problems, together with their "values."
