Francois Labourie introduced the theory of Anosov subgroups of semi-simple Lie groups in his seminal work
on Hitchin representations. Anosov groups are now widely recognized as the higher rank generalization of convex cocompact
subgroups of rank one Lie groups. (For our purposes, all higher rank Lie groups will be SL(d,R) and rank one Lie groups will
all be PSL(2,R), PSL(2,C) or SO(d,1).) We will review classical results on convex cocompact subgroups of rank one Lie groups
and discuss how they generalize into the setting of Anosov groups.
