Title: Diophantine approximation and Diophantine equations: old and new

The main tool for solving Diophantine equations is to study Diophantine approximation. In this talk, we explain the meaning of these words, the connection between the two topics, and we survey some of the main results (including recent ones) and some of the main conjectures.
