The present work is an advanced text and research monograph devoted to some of the most interesting modern developments on the border between algebra and topology. The interplay between these two large branches of pure mathematics has proved to be extremely fruitful, with mutual benefit in many instances. In particular, the theory of groups acting on graphs has led to a significant revitalization of combinatorial group theory and to important progress in low-dimensional topology.

The authors are well known for their substantial contributions to the subject. In this book they not only attempt to give a systematic account of known results (most of the topics discussed here appear in book form for the first time), but they also include some recent original results which appear for the first time in print.
