Abstract: One motivation for the theory of 3-manifold foliations is to generalize some constructions in 2 dimensions which greatly simplify the topology of surfaces. In this talk we will discuss this 2-dimensional theory. We will introduce laminations of surfaces and see how they can be used to understand homeomorphisms of surfaces.
