Abstract: 

Coupling has been an important tool in probability theory for decades. It's a powerful technique which is frequently used to compare random variables with each other, providing estimates of total variance distances, as well as establishing inequalities and proving limit theorems. On this talk, it will be presented an introduction to the coupling method, with emphasis on examples of applications of the method.
