Location: Zoom, PIMS, University of Calgary

Conference: The Unsolved Problems Conference: Celebrating the living legacy of the mathematics of Richard Guy

Subject: Mathematics, Combinatorics, Number Theory

Richard Guy was a supporter of the database of integer sequences right from its beginning in the 1960s. This talk will be illustrated by sequences that he contributed, sequences he wrote about, and especially sequences with open problems that he would have liked but that I never got to tell him about.
