Laminations, trees, and Out(F)


Laminations and free group actions on R-trees are useful tools for studying the structure of elements of and subgroups of outer automorphisms groups of free groups, denoted Out(F). After introducing laminations and R-trees in the context of Out(F), we will mention some recent progress on various topics related to Out(F).
