The author surveys some recent progress on the Toda system on a two-dimensional surface Sigma, arising in models from self-dual non-abelian Chern-Simons vortices, as well as in differential geometry. In particular, its variational structure is analysed, and the role of the topological join of the barycentric sets of Sigma is shown.
