“Seven shuffles suffice” by Tim Garoni

Take a new deck of cards, arranged in its natural order. How many times do you need to shuffle the deck (using a standard riffle shuffle) before the deck is random? In a certain well-defined sense, the answer is 7. A beautiful theory of random walks on groups has been developed in the past few decades to address such questions … We will take a random stroll through this theory.
