Abstract

Many people talk about properties that you would expect of a group. When they say this they are considering random groups, I will define what it means to pick a random group in one of many models and will give some properties that these groups will have with overwhelming probability. I will look at the proof of some of these results although the talk will mainly avoid proving things rigorously.
