Upper bounds for GCD sums of the form (Formula Presented) are established, where (n<inf>k</inf>)1≤k≤N is any sequence of distinct positive integers and 0 < α ≤ 1; the estimate for α = 1/2 solves in particular a problem of Dyer and Harman from 1986, and the estimates are optimal except possibly for α = 1/2. The method of proof is based on identifying the sum as a certain Poisson integral on a polydisc; as a byproduct, estimates for the largest eigenvalues of the associated GCD matrices are also found. The bounds for such GCD sums are used to establish a Carleson - Hunt-type inequality for systems of dilated functions of bounded variation or belonging to Lip<inf>1/2</inf>, a result that in turn settles two longstanding problems on the a.e. behavior of systems of dilated functions: the a.e. growth of sums of the form (Formula Presented)=1 f(n<inf>k</inf>x) and the a.e. convergence of (Formula Presented)=1 c<inf>k</inf>f(n<inf>k</inf>x) when f is 1-periodic and of bounded variation or in Lip<inf>1/2</inf>. © European Mathematical Society 2015.
