We introduce 2-copulas (copulas, shortly) and recent related research results. We present invariant copulas and their application in the theory of aggregation operators. Copulas are transformed by increasing bijections at the unit interval and discuss copula attractors. We also present results on the approximation of associative copulas by strict and nilpotent triangular norms.
