In the making for the last 15 years with many facets yet to be unravelled, the so-called Higher generalization of Teichmüller theory has already proven to be a fruitful tool in many fields of mathematics. In a nutshell, the generalization happens at the algebraic incarnation of classical Teichmüller theory by replacing PSL with a simple Lie group G of higher rank. I will detail the snake calculus at the heart of the construction, playing with the combinatorics pervading the theory. If time permits, I will discuss a new connection to the representation theory of quantum algebras from my own research.
