Adventures in the land of Homeo+(R).
The groups of homeomorphisms of the real line and the circle exhibit a remarkable subgroup structure, and consequently, a plethora of topological, algebraic and combinatorial phenomena. In this talk I shall provide some historical motivation to study such groups, and describe some concrete examples that illustrate the theory. If time permits, I will present some recent advances in the area.
