**Brief Description:**

**Special Note**:

**Abstract:**

Intuitively, an end of a leaf in a minimal set of a foliation is a 'distinct way to
go to infinity'. Analysis of end spaces of leaves provides information about the
asymptotic behavior of leaves in the minimal set. Although the notion of an end is
rather simple, it is not always easy to compute the number of ends of leaves in
actual examples of minimal sets. In the talk I will introduce a notion of the
Schreier continuum, which gives a way to compute end structures of leaves within the
minimal set of a certain class of foliations geometrically, and give an example of
computations with Schreier continua for the non-homogeneous solenoid of Schori.
