Abstract : In this talk I will describe the state of the art and yet open problems in the theory of badly approximable points. It should be noted that until 10 years ago this area of Diophantine approximation was essentially limited to findings made by Davenport and Schmidt in the 1960s; however, in the past decade it has seen breathtaking progress. I will also make an attempt to describe some of the techniques involved: Cantor sets constructions, winning sets and quantitative non-divergence on the space of lattices.
