We recall the self-homeomorphisms of a closed oriented reducible 3-manifold. Using this description, we discuss various problems in low-dimensional topology and dynamics, such as the existence of Anosov tori in 3-manifolds and the simplicial volume of mapping tori of 3-manifolds. (Based on joint works with Shicheng Wang and Michelle Bucher respectively.)
