Abstract: In 1981, Mckay proved an asymptotic result regarding the number of spanning trees in random \(k\)-regular graphs. In this talk we will discuss an analogous result for random high dimensional \(k\)-regular simplicial complexes, showing that the weighted number of simplicial spanning trees in such complexes converge asymptotically almost surely to an explicit constant \(\zeta_{d,k}\), when \(n\) tends to infinity provided that \(k\geq 2d^2+2d\sqrt{d^2-1}\). A key ingredient in the proof is the local convergence of such random complexes to the \(d\)-dimensional, \(k\)-regular arboreal complex, which allows us to generalize Mckay's result regarding the Kesten-Mckay distribution.
