### Abstract

I will discuss in this paper number theoretic problems which are of combinatorial nature. I certainly do not claim to cover the field completely and the paper will be biased heavily towards problems considered by me and my collaborators. Combinatorial methods have often been used successfully in number theory (e.g. sieve methods), but here we will try to restrict ourselves to problems which themselves have a combinatorial flavor. I have written several papers in recent years on such problems and in order to avoid making this paper too long, wherever possible, will discuss either problems not mentioned in the earlier papers or problems where some progress has been made since these papers were written. Before starting the discussion of our problems I give a few of the principal papers where similar problems were discussed and where further literature can be found.
