I will give a brief introduction to submodular functions and related concepts, and survey some of recent results in optimizing submodular functions (under various constraints). I will go into the details of one recent remarkable result about maximizing submodular function under matroid constraints (the 1-1/e approx. using continuous greedy+pipage round method).
