Abstract: Quasi-random objects are deterministic objects that poses
properties one expects to find in "truly" random ones. The study of such
objects lies at the intersection of many areas such as graph theory,
additive number theory and theoretical computer science. I will start by
giving an overview of this topic, mentioning some classic results. I will
then turn to some recent joint works with Subrahmanyam Kalyanasundaram.
 
No prior knowledge in graph theory will be assumed.
