Abstract: The concentration of measure phenomenon is one of the most important ideas in modern probability theory with profound impact in various areas such as random matrices, high-dimensional geometry, discrete mathematics, and more. In the first part of this talk we review some classical results concerned with concentration in product spaces along with applications. In the second part we discuss Talagrand’s ``new look” for the latter setting.
