Title: The Brownian web

Abstract: The Brownian web is a system of coalescing Brownian motions starting from every point in the space-time $\mathbb R^2$. Various random network models scale to the Brownian web and as such many properties of these networks may be obtained from the Brownian web. We present an overview of results in this area.
