Starting with the discovery of graphene, the Dirac equation has appeared in many different contexts in condensed matter physics. In this talk I will describe two recent developments: the effects of chiral anomalies in Weyl and Dirac materials, and the Dirac nature of the composite fermion in the many-body physics of the half-filled Landau level.
