What does a large random permutation look like? To find out, we employ limit objects called permutons together with a variational principle that, in theory at least, enables us to “see” what most large permutations look like that have specified statistical properties. (Joint work with Rick Kenyon, Dan Kral’ and Charles Radin.)
