The Fuss-Catalan numbers are a generalization of the more well-known Catalan numbers. The Fuss-Catalan numbers will be defined, also with a short historical sketch. Pertinent recurrence relations, convolution identities, generating functions, etc will be presented. Sample applications to combinatorics, probability & statistics and complex analysis will be shown. The emphasis in this talk will be on the generality of the usefulness of Fuss-Catalan numbers.
