Cosmic connectivity and multiplicity, i.e. the number of filaments globally or locally connected to a given cluster is a natural probe of the growth of structure and in particular of the nature of dark energy. It is also a critical ingredient driving the assembly history of galaxies as it controls mass and angular momentum accretion. In this talk, I will describe how cosmic connectivity can be understood and modelled from first principles. Applications to cosmology and galaxy formation will be discussed.
