Analysis of Boolean functions is a meeting point of combinatorics, probability theory, harmonic analysis, and the theory of computing. The lecture will describe some advances and challenges in this area. We will discuss discrete isoperimetric inequalities, influences, threshold phenomena for stochastic models, and noise-sensitivity as well as some connections with social choice theory.
