The ``random sampling'' in the title has nothing whatsoever to

do with statistics. Instead, it refers to the perfect reconstruction of

a band-limited function from samples, a classical problem of

Fourier analysis and signal processing. With deterministic sampling,

almost everything is known in one dimension and almost nothing

is known in higher dimensions. It turns out that one loses very little in

efficiency by using random sampling, and in return one can use

probabilistic techniques to get some interesting theoretical results.

This is joint work with Karlheinz Gr\"ochenig.
