The loop-erased walk is the process obtained be erasing loops chronologically from a simple random walk. It is closely related to a number of processes including uniform spanning trees. I will give a survey of recent (last five years or so) progress on this process obtained with a number of co-authors. I will try to make this talk accessible at a “colloquium” level.
