I will discuss the surprisingly simple and effective (and relatively new) method of "Dependent Random Choice" in graph theory, relying on the recent survey paper on this method written by Benny Sudakov and Jacob Fox. Applications to Ramsey Theory and additive combinatorics (Balog-Szemeredi-Gowers theorem) will be sketched.
