Abstract: 

This will be a beginner's primer on the use of "spine" or "distinguished path" techniques for branching stochastic processes.  To underscore the efficacy of such techniques we'll take a look at a recent application, wherein they were used to determine some critical parameter values for a branching brownian process held between two absorbing boundaries.
