The study of mapping tori is an important field in geometric group theory, thanks to the interplay of algebra, dynamics and geometry. I will introduce this topic and touch upon some celebrated results, starting with Thurston's pioneering work on mapping tori of surfaces, culminating in the results of Agol, Wise and others for hyperbolic 3-manifolds. I will then talk about recent results which generalise/unify some of the above results and their free group analogues. Based on joint works with François Dahmani, and with Dahmani and Jean Pierre Mutanguha.
