I will report on the latest results on super-approximation. Roughly super-approximation gives us the right condition in order to get a family of expanders out of the Cayley graphs of the congruence quotients of a group generated by finitely many rational matrices. I will mention a sum-product phenomenon in number fields which is used in the proof of super-approximation. Some of the applications of super-approximation will be mentioned at the end.
