In the last 30 years representations of (infinite) Galois groups have played an increasingly important role in number theory. Indeed, arithmetic objects such as the Diophantine equation y2=x3+x2+1 or xn+yn=zn often have attached Galois representations that 'know' the solutions. This talk will survey of a small slice of this theory and will be accessible to mathematicians in all disciplines.
