Abstract: Spectral gaps for graphs and the spectral geometry of Riemannian manifolds contain interesting information about the geometry of the underlying objects. Spectral gaps have been studied using various approaches by several people, combining ideas from representation theory, probability theory, and analysis among others. I will explain some of these approaches and state a new result on the spectral gaps of random flat unitary bundles over hyperbolic surfaces.
