Peter G. Doyle  
A paper that appeared in the Bulletin of the American Mathematical society, which considers the problem of determining the conformal type of a covering surface of the Riemann sphere with punctures. To such a surface there corresponds a Speiser graph of the covering. The paper shows how to define a random walk on the vertices of the graph, so that the random walk is transient if and only if the surface is hyperbolic. A PostScript file is available from Doyle's site.
