Let (M,g) be a compact Riemannian surface without boundary. Consider the corresponding L2-normalized Laplace-Beltrami eigenfunctions. Eigenfunctions of this type arise in physics as modes of periodic vibration of drums and membranes. They also represent stationary states of a free quantum particle on a Riemannian manifold. In the first part of the lecture, I will give a survey of results which demonstrate how the geometry of M affects the behaviour of these special functions, particularly their size which can be quantified by estimating Lp norms.

In the second part, I will present joint results with Pramanik (UBC) on the Lp restrictions of these eigenfunctions to random Cantor-type subsets of M. Our method includes concentration inequalities from probability theory in addition to the analysis of singular Fourier integral operators on fractals.
