Title: Large-scale geometry of some topological groups

Abstract: Classically, geometric group theory studies large-scale geometry of discrete groups. More recently, certain topological groups have captured the attention. I will discuss three classes of such groups and will focus on asymptotic dimension as an important large-scale invariant. We will discuss when it is well defined and in some cases we will compute it.
