This volume is about tree-like structures, namely semilinear ordering, general betweenness relations, \(C\)-relations and \(D\)-relations. It contains a systematic study of betweenness and introduces \(C\)- and \(D\)-relations to describe the behavior of points at infinity ("leaves" or "ends" or "directions") of trees. The focus is on structure theorems and on automorphism groups, with applications to the theory of infinite permutation groups.
Graduate students and research mathematicians interested in relational systems and laws of composition.
