Andrzej Schinzel, born in 1937, is a leading number theorist
whose work has had a lasting impact on modern mathematics. He is the
author of over 200 research articles in various branches of
arithmetics, including elementary, analytic, and algebraic number
theory. He has also been, for nearly 40 years, the editor of Acta
Arithmetica, the first international journal devoted exclusively
to number theory.

Selecta, a two-volume set, contains Schinzel's most important
articles published between 1955 and 2006. The arrangement is by topic,
with each major category introduced
by an expert's comment. Many of the hundred selected papers deal with
arithmetical and algebraic properties of polynomials in one or several
variables, but there are also articles on Euler's totient function, the
favorite subject of Schinzel's early research, on prime numbers (including the
famous paper with Sierpiński on the Hypothesis "H"), algebraic number
theory, diophantine equations, analytical number theory and geometry of
numbers. Selecta concludes with some papers from outside
number theory, as well as a list of unsolved problems and unproved
conjectures, taken from the work of Schinzel.
