Based on a new decoupling inequality for curves in $\mathbb R^d$, we obtain the essentially optimal form of Vinogradov's mean value theorem in all dimensions (the case $d = 3$ is due to T. Wooley). Various consequences will be mentioned and we will also indicate the main elements in the proof (joint work with C. Demeter and L. Guth).
