One of the major contributions of Paul Erdős is the development of the Probabilistic Method and its applications in Combinatorics, Graph Theory, Additive Number Theory and Combinatorial Geometry. This short paper describes some of the beautiful applications of the method, focusing on the long-term impact of the work, questions and results of Erdős. This is mostly a survey, but it contains a few novel results as well.
