The fundamental group of fractal sets -- order theoretical aspects

Fractal sets (specified in the talk) typically have a complicated local topological structure giving rise to an intricate fundamental group. In joint work with Reinhard Winkler and Jörg Thuswaldner we gave a description of such fundamental groups. The talk outlines our construction and in particular deals with some inherent order theoretical aspects.
