The study of asymptotics of random permutations was initiated by Erdős and Turáan, in a series of papers from 1965 to 1968, and has been much studied since. Recent developments in permutation group theory make it reasonable to ask questions with a more group-theoretic flavour. Two examples considered here are membership in a proper transitive subgroup, and the intersection of a subgroup with a random conjugate. These both arise from other topics (quasigroups, bases for permutation groups, and design constructions).
