Title: What's at the end of an infinite group?

Abstract: Compactifying spaces is a common tactic in topology. One of the most useful general methods is the one point compactification. In this talk I'll discuss how such techniques have been used in the study of groups. Toward the end we'll examine some recent examples that Noel Brady and I use to illuminate the connections between ends, extensions and finiteness properties of infinite groups.
