Abstract:
 
The probabilistic approach in topology is relatively new,
following the very well established probabilistic method
in combinatorics. I will present some results of P. Erdos
and A. Renyi, of N. Dunfield and W. Thurston, and joint
results with N. Linial. The talk will assume no prior
knowledge, and will mostly focus on describing the
topological constructions on which randomness is then
applied.
