We report our recent numerical and experimental observations of dissipative soliton interactions
inside a fiber laser cavity. A bound state, formed from two pulses, may have a group velocity which
differs from that of a single soliton. As a result, they can collide inside the cavity. This results
in a variety of outcomes. Numerical simulations are based either on a continuous model or on a
