The theory of q-analogues is important in both combinatorics and the study of hypergeometric series. Roughly speaking, the q-analogue of a mathematical object (which could be a number or a theorem or ...) is another object depending on a parameter q which reduces to the original object when q=1. This talk will be a gentle introduction to q-analogues. No background will be assumed.
