summary：

With every (partial) self-covering of a topological space we associate

a group acting on a rooted tree, called the iterated monodromy group.

The iterated monodromy groups have interesting group theoretic

properties, and they uniquely determine the dynamical system in

expanding (hyperbolic) case. One can also associate two C*-algebras

with a partial self-covering, which are dual to each other in some

sense. One is constructed using the iterated monodromy group, the

other one is defined starting from the algebra of continuous functions

on the space. We will discuss properties of these C*-algebras and

their relation to dynamical systems.
