The notion of amenability is extended from the classical case of locally compact
groups to that of groupoids, both in the measure and the topological settings.
This is relevant for group actions, equivalence relations, foliations,
and C*-algebras. The monograph also
provides an elegant and comprehensive
survey on amenability.
