Since their introduction by Furstenberg [3], joinings have proved a very powerful tool in ergodic theory. We present here some aspects of the use of joinings in the study of measurable dynamical systems, emphasizing
  • the links between the existence of a non trivial common factor and the existence of a joining which is not the product measure,
  • how joinings can be employed to provide elegant proofs of classical results,
  • how joinings are involved in important questions of ergodic theory, such as pointwise convergence or Rohlin's multiple mixing problem.
