Title: Sums of powers, a probabilistic approach

Abstract: Erd\H{o}s and R\’{e}nyi introduced in 1960 the study of sums
of $s$-th powers by probability methods. Their model has been largely
developed since then. The talk will give a survey of this probabilistic
approach, up to the most recent contributions obtained jointly
with Javier Cilleruelo.
