Combinatorial Methods in Oriented Percolation

In this expositoray talk, aimed at a general mathematical audience, we shall review some of the basic results in percolation theory, with emphasis on the critical probability of oriented bond percolation. We shall describe a number of recent results of Balister, Stacey, Liggett and others, obtained by combinatorial methods.
