# Matilde Lalin : The distribution of points on cyclic l-covers of genus g

We give an overview of a general trend of results that say that the distribution of the number of F_q-points of certain families of curves of genus g is asymptotically given by a sum of q+1 independent, identically distributed random variables as g goes to infinity. In particular, we discuss the distribution of the number of F_q-points for cyclic l-covers of genus g. (This is joint work with Bucur, David, Feigon, Kaplan, Ozman, Wood.) This work generalizes previous results in which only connected components of the moduli space were considered.
