We investigate some topological properties of random geometric complexes and random geometric graphs on Riemannian manifolds in the thermodynamic limit. In particular, for random geometric complexes we prove that the normalized counting measure of connected components, counted according to isotopy type, converges in probability to a deterministic measure. More generally, we also prove similar convergence results for the counting measure of types of components of each k-skeleton of a random geometric complex. As a consequence, in the case of the 1-skeleton (i.e. for random geometric graphs) we show that the empirical spectral measure associated to the normalized Laplace operator converges to a deterministic measure.

This is a joint work with Antonio Lerario.
