The Central Limit Theorem is an example of the ubiquitous, yet still surprising, phenomenon in probability that many independent random inputs often combine to give an output insensitive to the input distributions

We will explore how this phenomenon plays out in the construction of random abelian groups from random integral matrices. As an example we will see the probability, as n tends to infinity, that a random linear map Z → Zn is surjective.
