Triangulated surfaces are Riemann surfaces formed by gluing together equilateral triangles. They are also the Riemann surfaces defined over the algebraic numbers. Brooks, Makover, Mirzakhani and many others proved results about the geometric properties of random large genus triangulated surfaces, and similar results about the geometric properties of random large genus hyperbolic surfaces. These results motivated the question: how are triangulated surfaces distributed in the moduli space of Riemann surfaces, quantitatively? I will talk about results related to this question.
