Wheeled props is one the latest species found in the world of operads and props. We attempt to give an elementary introduction to the main ideas of the theory of wheeled props for beginners, and also a survey of its most recent major applications (ranging from algebra and geometry to deformation theory and Batalin–Vilkovisky quantization) which might be of interest to experts.
