The Lie superalgebras g are generalizations of Lie algebras to include Z_2-gradations g=g_0+g_1. They provide an important tool for physicists in the study of supersymmetries. In this talk, we will begin with classical results in the representation theory. We will survey the state of the classification problem of irreducible representations for complex Lie algebras and superalgebras. We explain the connection between irreducible representations of g and irreducible representations of the underlying Lie algebra g_0.
