Abstract: The study of randomness of fixed objects is an area of active research with many exciting developments in the last few years. We will discuss recent results about sequences in the unit interval specializing to directions in affine lattices, \sqrt n modulo 1, and directions in hyperbolic lattices (time permitting). Theorems about these sequences address convergence of moments as well as rates of convergence, and their proofs showcase a beautiful interplay between dynamical systems and number theory.
