Introduction to the Cohen-Lenstra Measure

The Cohen-Lenstra heuristics describe a conjectured probability distribution for the class group of quadratic fields. In this talk, I will give a brief introduction to the heuristic and how it is related to random groups. The remainder of the talk will focus on the Cohen-Lenstra probability measure for choosing a random p-group. This talk is based on a similar talk given by Bjorn Poonen.
