The main aim of this talk is to present geometric and spectral properties of typical hyperbolic surfaces. More precisely, I will:
- introduce a probabilistic model, first studied by Mirzakhani, which is a natural and convenient way to sample random hyperbolic surfaces
- describe the geometric properties of these random surfaces: diameter, injectivity radius, Cheeger constant, Benjamini-Schramm convergence...
- explain how one can deduce from this geometric information estimates on the number of eigenvalues of the Laplacian in an interval [a,b], using the Selberg trace formula.
