This chapter reviews the use of techniques of positive currents for the study of parameter spaces of one-dimensional holomorphic dynamical systems (rational mappings on P¹ or subgroups of the Möbius group PSL(2,C)). The topics covered include the construction of bifurcation currents and the characterization of their supports, the equidistribution properties of dynamically defined subvarieties of the parameter space. Emphasis will be placed as much as possible on the similarities between methods of higher-dimensional dynamics, of the study of families of rational maps, and that of Möbius subgroups. The chapter also states a number of open questions to foster further developments of this theory.

Keywords:   bifurcation currents, equidistribution, parameter space, positive currents, one-dimensional dynamics, holomorphic dynamical systems, higher-dimensional dynamics, rational maps, Möbius subgroups
