Sierpinski carpets are self-similar fractals that appear in many areas of mathematics. For example, these fractals arise as Julia sets of rational functions or as limit sets of Kleinian groups. While the topology of Sierpinski carpets has been well understood for a long time, a deeper insight into their quasiconformal geometry has been gained only recently. This is particularly relevant and interesting for many questions in dynamics and geometry, but many problems remain open. In my talk I will give an introduction to this subject and will report on some recent developments.
