This chapter is a non-technical, elementary introduction to the theory of glassy phases and their ubiquity. The aim is to provide a guide and some kind of coherent view to the various topics that have been explored in recent years in this very diverse field, ranging from spin or structural glasses to protein folding, combinatorial optimization, neural networks, error correcting codes, and game theory.

Keywords:   glassy phases, spin glasses, structural glasses, protein folding, combinatorial optimization, neural networks, game theory
