This collection of 17 papers comes from the 1999 meeting at Bielefeld of experts on interactions between mostly infinite groups on the one hand and topological, combinatorial and arithmetic structure on the other. Topics include reductive groups as metric spaces, higher finiteness properties of S-arithmetic groups, topology in permutation groups, Euler characteristics of discrete groups, lattices with non-integral character, parity patterns in Hecke groups and Fermat primes and pseudo-finite generalized triangle groups.
