I will discuss two recent ideas on how to better understand the underlying structure of Dyson-Schwinger equations in quantum field theory. These approaches use primarily combinatorial tools; classes of rooted trees in the first case and chord diagrams in the second case. The mathematics is explicit and approachable.
