ABSTRACT | Cluster algebras were discovered by Fomin and Zelevinsky
in 2001. Since then, they have been shown to be related to diverse
areas of mathematics such as Total positivity, Quiver representations,
String theory, Statistical physics, Non-commutative geometry,
Teichm\'uller theory, Hyperbolic geometry, Tropical geometry, KP
solitons, Integrable systems, Quantum mechanics, Lie theory,
Algebraic combinatorics and Poisson geometry. As an introduction,
I'll explain how they occur in such a wide variety of branches of
mathematics, especially in geometry.
The talk will be totally elementary and will not assume any preliminary
knowledge of cluster algebras.
