Abstract: This talk will discuss the analogies and the differences between two remarkable classes of infinite groups: the lattices and the mapping class groups of surfaces. The viewpoint will be that of their intrinsic geometry (the minimal and the maximal rank, the divergence etc), of their actions on Hilbert spaces and of the spaces of homomorphisms from groups in one class to groups in the other class.
