The group large sieve

In this talk we will present a model based on random walks for the density of subsets in finitely generated groups. The main focus will be on the group large sieve method which is a tool for estimating the density by investigating the finite quotients of the group. We will describe applications of this method for linear groups as well as for mapping class groups.
