We survey the cohomology jumping loci and the Alexander-type
invariants associated to a space, or to its fundamental group. Though most
of the material is expository, we provide new examples and applications,
which in turn raise several questions and conjectures.

The jump loci of a space X come in two basic flavors: the characteristic
varieties, or, the support loci for homology with coefficients in rank 1 local
systems, and the resonance varieties, or, the support loci for the homology of
the cochain complexes arising from multiplication by degree 1 classes in the
cohomology ring of X. The geometry of these varieties is intimately related
to the formality, (quasi-) projectivity, and homological finiteness properties
of pi_1(X).

We illustrate this approach with various applications to the study of hyperplane
arrangements, Milnor fibrations, 3-manifolds, and right-angled Artin groups.
