Abstract. (joint work with Eran Makover) What does a typical surface of constant curvature look like geometrically? We study this question by modeling it on the geometric behavior of a randomly chosen 3-regular graph. The resulting picture is an interesting mix of techniques from Riemannian geometry, complex analysis, and probability theory, and contains some surprising answers.
