I will discuss the problems of counting several natural objects (simple lattice paths, trees, planar maps) and will highlight beautiful connections to complex analysis. A central theme is the question of how to "best" draw planar graphs, and how a randomly chosen planar map "looks like". In the pre-talk I will mostly review some very basic notions from complex analysis.
