Distant galaxy clusters are powerful laboratories for observing the hierarchical growth of large-scale structure, constraining cosmological parameters, and for studying the formation of galaxies. However, distant (z>1.5) clusters are extremely rare and faint, so locating and studying them poses a significant observational challenge. In this seminar, I will review the theory of cluster formation and present recent advances we have made in detecting and studying distant galaxy clusters.
